How to Choose a New Thermostat for Your Home’s HVAC System

Living in Perris, CA, means you can enjoy sunny days throughout most of the year. But even though the outdoor conditions may feel comfortable much of the time, you still need air conditioning and heating to maximize comfort inside your house. To do this, you use a thermostat. Read on to learn how to choose a new thermostat for your home’s HVAC system.

Thermostats and HVAC Systems

Before purchasing a new thermostat, you need to ensure it’s compatible with your HVAC system for energy-efficient operation. The most common HVAC systems are central air conditioners, furnaces, ductless mini-splits and heat pumps. Understanding the different types of thermostats available is essential to select the appropriate thermostat for your HVAC system. To maximize energy efficiency, we recommend that you invest in home automation zoning, which splits your house into multiple climate control zones for customized comfort.

Digital Non-Programmable Thermostats

This thermostat comes with a digital read-out, enhancing your convenience when you prefer a user-friendly LCD. You can manually control the settings, letting you create your desired and energy-efficient indoor temperature without concerns about abrupt switches, even when the weather changes.

Programmable/Smart Thermostats

A programmable thermostat automatically switches the set temperature throughout the day or night. A smart thermostat presents the advantage of being programmable but doesn’t always require you to program it. The smart type also links to your Wi-Fi network to enable setting adjustments using your smart device. We can provide you with a programmable/smart thermostat installation during your next air conditioning or heating installation. By doing so, you’ll enjoy automated and energy-efficient performance.

Mechanical Manual Thermostats

If you haven’t upgraded your thermostat recently, it’s likely that you’re still using this type of thermostat. Manual thermostats are only a good choice for residents who stay at home for much of the day and are willing to manually adjust the settings multiple times per day for efficiency. But your best course of action to lower your energy bills is to upgrade to a new thermostat.
