Is your thermostat acting up or failing to do its part in keeping your home at a comfortable temperature? Investing in a new control for your Eighty Four, PA, home’s HVAC system can ultimately save you money and make your system more efficient. Here are three signs you need to upgrade your thermostat.
HVAC System Is Not Working Properly
Perhaps your HVAC system has stopped working before reaching the set temperature or only works intermittently. Maybe you have the problem of it running constantly. If your home is too hot or too cold, your HVAC system isn’t cooling properly.
In some instances, you may experience different temperatures in multiple rooms of the house. Scenarios like this can be a tell-tale sign that your thermostat is on the fritz.
Thermostat Buttons Aren’t Working
Sometimes when a button stops working on a device, you can still get away with using it. Or in some instances, you may be able to repair a button’s loose wires without having to get a replacement. Many times, however, it will be easier on your wallet in the long run to replace your control.
Your Thermostat Is Old
Surprisingly enough, your control doesn’t actually have to be problematic to be in need of an upgrade. Sometimes, if a control is old, that’s enough reason to replace it.
If your thermostat is more than 10 years old, it is definitely time to consider a replacement. With the thermostat technology available these days, you can be saving on your monthly energy bill when you upgrade to a new model. New controls now have increased energy efficiency, offering the ability to be programmed and even accessed remotely.
If your thermostat seems to be struggling, there is no better time than the present to make an upgrade and begin cutting costs. Call the licensed professionals at Valley Heating & Air Conditioning today about upgrading your home’s thermostat.
