programmable-thermostatNow that winter is starting to melt into spring here in Florida, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the quality of the heating system in your home. You might have noticed that it felt as though you were battling with your heater all winter long. You should never feel like this! If you’re having trouble with the quality of heating in your home, you might shy away from service because you’re assuming it’s a problem with your actual heating unit. In actuality, it might just be a problem with your thermostat.

Don’t underestimate the impact of your thermostat on your home comfort. Your thermostat is like the “brain” of your HVAC system. So when something is going awry, then it impacts every single other part of your HVAC system. A thermostat upgrade in Palm Bay, FL can greatly increase your home comfort. If you’re ready to make the switch make sure that you contact our team today.

Signs You Need a Thermostat Upgrade

  • The Temperature and Setting Don’t Match: Does your thermostat read the room setting as one temperature degree, but in actuality, it feels much cooler or hotter in your home? This is a sign that your thermostat needs to be recalibrated or even upgraded to a newer model.
  • You’re Uncomfortable: If you can’t seem to get warm in your home in winter no matter how high you turn up your thermostat setting it’s likely a problem with the dial.
  • You’re Experiencing Short Cycling: If your heater turns on, runs for a short while, turns off, and then starts this whole process over shortly after, you’re definitely having an issue with the functionality of your thermostat. The smartest idea in this instance is to call a professional technician.

Make the Switch to a Smart Thermostat

If you have a dial thermostat in your home or even a digital thermostat that lacks Wi-Fi capabilities, we can ensure you that this system simply isn’t cutting it. You need a smart thermostat system in your home. Smart thermostats are the latest in technology and combine precision and convenience in a way that best benefits you.

Even if you have a programmable thermostat, you have to work around this system. For example, if you have your heater set to turn on and off around the times your typical workday but something comes up and you come home much later than expected, you’ll heat an empty home and waste money. A smart thermostat has remote Wi-Fi capabilities that allow you to control your thermostat no matter where you are.

What makes your smart thermostat so “smart” is its ability to “learn” how you like to heat and cool your home. Throughout the first few weeks that your thermostat is installed it will monitor when, at what temperature, and how often you operate your thermostat. It can come to anticipate when and how you want your home heated in winter. Smart thermostats even highlight opportunities for you to run your heater or air conditioner in a more energy-efficient manner. These systems really work for you.

If you want to boost the overall quality of heating in your home make sure you pay attention to the quality of your thermostat. Contact our team at Next Generation Air & Heat, Inc. to schedule an appointment.
