AC Digital Thermostats
There are a couple of reasons why you should update your current manual thermostat to a digital thermostat. First of all, digital thermostats are more accurate than manual ones, and temperatures and settings are much easier to read and program. This means more comfort control for you. Updating your current thermostat to a digital model will also increase your HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system efficiency. And finally, since digital thermostats are more accurate and efficient, they will lower your monthly utility bill.
While manual mechanical thermostats are inexpensive and are found in older homes, they are never 100% accurate, making it hard to find your comfortable, desired temperature. That’s because these old style thermostats use mercury to respond to temperature changes, similar to the way a thermometer works…slowly! This means that your HVAC unit will be running either too long, or not long enough. When you make the upgrade to a digital thermostat it’s a win-win – your HVAC system will be energy efficient and you’ll have more money in your pocket because of it.
While you will pay more initially for a programmable digital thermostat than for a manual mechanical thermostat, you will more than make up the difference once your unit starts operating more efficiently – nearly $200 a year on average! A digital thermostat will quickly adjust to new temperature settings, making sure your HVAC unit doesn’t work harder than necessary. And, with no mercury included, they are much more environmentally friendly.
When you update to a programmable digital thermostat, you have the ability to preset your desired temperatures for specific times of day, like when you’re at home, at work, or asleep. Our programmable digital thermostats also come with a range of features, like Wi-Fi and filter change reminders. Some programmable thermostats can even send a notification to your smartphone when your HVAC unit breaks. That way you can schedule a repair before you’re even home!
