Thermostat Replacement & Installation in Kansas City
The thermostat is the device that controls the operation of your heating and cooling systems and is a vital component in maintaining the temperature and comfort of your home. Wildly inaccurate or poorly calibrated thermostats are incredibly frustrating and can wreak havoc on your indoor temperatures.
Old thermostats can be hard to control, challenging to see, unprogrammable, inaccurate, poorly calibrated, or even stop working altogether. They are only accurate at reading the temperature within a few degrees, even if properly calibrated.
Newer digital thermostats can read the temperature within a half a degree of accuracy, depending on the HVAC system and air handler you have installed. Many new thermostats are wireless and battery-operated, allowing you to move the thermostat to whichever room you want.
If you’re ready to get a new thermostat, talk to the professionals at Anthony Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electric today. Our service professionals will work with you to install the thermostat that best meets your desires.
Programmable thermostats are handy in that you can schedule your HVAC system to fit your needs. There’s no point in pumping in lots of cold air on hot summer days when you are out for the day at work. By programming your thermostat to turn up the temperature when you are out of the house, you can save up to 10 percent on your utility bill.
Smart thermostats are similar to programmable thermostats, but they have additional features. Smart thermostats connect to your Wi-Fi, enabling you to adjust the temperature from your phone in addition to the smart thermostat itself. They take scheduling one step further than standard programmable thermostats. They can “learn” your schedule and adjust the temperature for optimal energy savings.
Smart thermostats also deliver energy use reports so you can see your energy usage over different periods. They also notify you when to change your filter or schedule routine maintenance.
Different thermostats may require additional wiring from your HVAC system to your control. Anthony’s HVAC technicians can install any required wiring and get your new thermostat up and running with minimal hassle. If you think your current thermostat is improperly calibrated, we can try to calibrate it (if that model has the option) or install a new thermostat.
