Adjust Everything But Your Expectations
We understand that everyone has different needs. You know better than anyone what your preferred home climate is. As you know, a thermostat system that’s designed for your needs will help you control the climate of your home all year round. Whether you want it nice and brisk, or if you like it warm and toasty, the right thermostat is out there for you.
Today’s newest thermostat technology is light years ahead of the old meter on your wall
In addition to monitoring internal temps better, some thermostats also provide humidity level readings, and have programmable temperature schedules.
The most advanced models offer monitoring of individual rooms, as well as a full suite of smart home controls, like lights, fans, audio and intercom options, and remote sensing options that provide additional home security.
But maybe you just need something that will let you keep the living room at 70 degrees all year? We can do that, too. Whatever your needs, Eco Plumbing Heat & Air Conditioning has the right tool for you.
Your Thermostat Is Costing You Money
A faulty thermostat will lead to decreased heating and cooling efficiency—and an increase in your energy bills. If it can’t read the temps in your home properly, your A/C or heater will just keep running. And in addition, if your thermostat is installed near vents, it could also fail to cool or heat your home at all. After all, the standard thermostat can only read the temperature of its immediate surroundings.
This is why we recommend yearly maintenance, repair, or replacement services in order to keep your AC, heater, or furnace working at its fullest potential.
How Do Thermostats Work?
A thermostat controls your air conditioning system and your heating system. You can program the maximum and minimum temperature in your home, and select the highest efficiency settings you’d like. There’s no reason to waste resources or abuse the expensive equipment that has the biggest impact on your comfort and quality of life.
Proper installation of your digital thermostat is extremely important for the performance of your heating and cooling system. If not properly installed, your energy bills could skyrocket. It won’t matter how high-end or your HVAC system is if it is not paired with a capable thermostat and proper installation. With Eco Plumbing Heating & Air, you can rest assured that your home will have reliable warmth and cooling year-round.
The latest models of thermostats focus on saving energy and money. Believe it or not, switching thermostats is surprisingly simple. And even better, they contain some pretty cool technology.
Extend the Life of Your HVAC Systems
Here are some useful tips on properly using your digital thermostat:
- Keep the temperature set on an energy efficient level. Your thermostat will usually tell you what energy efficient settings it has. Keep your thermostat set at this level for long periods of time. Leaving it on this setting while you’re at work or gone for the day is the easiest way to keep your home climate steady.
- All thermostats let you temporarily change the temperature without changing your programmed settings. However, constantly changing this temperature can cause your energy bills to rise because it puts more stress on your heating and cooling system.
- Thermostat usually have two different types of features that often require you to hold a certain button down in order to activate them. The first setting is for temporary use and the second setting is meant for permanent or away. The away setting is best for when you’re on vacation or away from home for extended periods of time. Set this at a constant efficient temperature, for example, several degrees hotter in the summer and several degrees cooler in the winter. This will improve your energy savings.
- Turning your thermostat up extremely high or low will not heat or cool your home and faster. Most thermostats start to slow down once the temperature is close to the point you’ve manually set.
- If you have a larger home you may need more than one thermostat to properly and efficiently heat and cool your home. Having multiple thermostats for each heating and cooling zone will maximize your energy savings throughout your entire house.
