Many thermostats can last years, but that doesn’t mean you should keep yours for years. Over the last decade, thermostats have come a long way. Today’s new thermostats offer benefits for you, your family, your home and your air conditioner that you may not get with an outdated thermostat. Have you been thinking about upgrading the thermostat for your air conditioning? Ace Air Conditioning carries all the latest thermostats, and here are some reasons why you may want to upgrade to one:
- Better precision – a digital thermostat is precise when it comes to temperature settings, whereas a slide or dial thermostat typically lists degrees in fives, i.e., 65-70, 70-75, etc., giving you a range of temperatures rather than an exact setting.
- Better energy efficiency – one of the natural benefits of better precision is better energy efficiency, particularly if you upgrade to a programmable thermostat. A programmable thermostat allows you to set different temperatures for different times of day, including times of low-or-no occupancy. This can help improve your energy efficiency and save on monthly utility bills.
- Better comfort – inaccurate thermostats can comprise your comfort. By upgrading your thermostat, you no longer run this risk.
- Less wear on your system – malfunctioning thermostats can trigger constant cycling, which can accelerate the level of wear-and-tear on your system.
- Easier to use – the face on digital thermostats is easy to read, and the buttons are more intuitive, making operation of your thermostat easier.
- More convenient – even the most conscientious person can’t always remember to turn the thermostat up or down to save on energy costs. With a programmable thermostat, you don’t have to worry about running back and forth to change it – simply set your program and you’re done.
