Thermostat Installation in Des Moines
Without a thermostat, you really can’t operate a modern-day HVAC system. Thermostats come in two major forms. First, there are the old mechanical thermostats, which operate using a bimetallic strip. This is how older thermostats regulate temperature. While this system works, it is imprecise and inefficient.
Newer digital thermostats connect to your HVAC system wirelessly rather than via a physical cord. Their electronic components work to turn your HVAC system on or off in response to the settings you’ve programmed into the thermostat. This is much more precise.
If you have one of the older thermostats described above, we strongly recommend calling over one of our technicians and scheduling an upgrade. Industry professionals recommend replacing your thermostat about once every 10 years. Not only that, but older thermostats use mercury switches, which can expose you to danger. Newer thermostats have other advantages that we’ll discuss below.
Our team can install advanced thermostats from all the top brands, including ecobee, Google, and Mysa.
The Advantages of Smart Thermostats
With a digital thermostat, you can set indoor temperatures to whatever level you want them to be. You can also make sure that temperatures reach desired levels when you want them to do so rather than at other times (like when you’re not at home). All of this translates into lower energy and lower costs and more power at your disposal.
- More precision
- More energy efficiency
- More power in your hands
- More care exercised over your HVAC system
Since digital thermostats are wirelessly integrated with your HVAC system, they know when something is wrong with the system. They can alert you to problems like dirty air filters or broken parts. This allows you to not only schedule timely repairs but ultimately save money on system upkeep.
The Importance of Energy-Efficient Thermostats
Energy-efficient thermostats with a recovery mode feature will begin working to change indoor temperatures to desired levels earlier than the time at which you had originally programmed them to start working. Indoor temperatures will still get to the right levels by the appointed time.
But by activating earlier, these thermostats ensure a more gradual change in indoor temperatures. This actually saves energy, since your HVAC system won’t need to consume bursts of power to heat or cool rooms quickly.
Our team can install energy-efficient thermostats for you with the recovery mode features.
