Why You Need to Upgrade Your Thermostat

Monday, June 6th, 2016 at 11:00 am

People tend to be pretty on top of keeping their heating and air conditioning systems in good shape. Problems get repaired promptly, and the systems are upgraded when they start to get towards the end of their lifespans. That doesn't really happen with thermostats, though. All too often, a thermostat is left operating far past its useful lifespan. Let's take a look at why you need to upgrade your thermostat.

Loss of Efficiency

Thermostats wear out over time, just like any other system. That wear and tear results in a slow decline in efficiency the older a thermostat gets. As the efficiency of the thermostat drops, its ability to control the temperature accurately decreases as well. An old and inefficient thermostat will not be able to keep your home as comfortable as a newer one in better condition. Dead spots, temperature ranges where the thermostat should activate a climate control system but doesn't, will get larger and larger as the thermostat wears down. You end up throwing a lot of money away, and making your home a lot less comfortable, by using a thermostat like that. You should replace your thermostat at least once every 10-15 years, in order to make sure you get the most out of it.

Types of Thermostats Available

Modern thermostats offer a wide range of different options beyond simple on/off. Adaptive thermostats learn your climate control habits over the first couple of weeks that you use them. After a while, the thermostat will adapt to the point that you no longer need to adjust it. Wireless thermostats use satellite units, which allow much greater coverage. Upgrading your thermostat will provide you with a range of benefits that you wouldn't otherwise have.
