Thermostats

The thermostat is really a remarkable device—it’s truly the remote control for your home’s heating and cooling systems. From the ease and comfort of your hallway, bedroom or den, you can stoke the fires of your furnace (or crank up your A/C) with the turn of a dial or push of a button. Then it keeps working to control your system and deliver the exact room temperature you desire. 

There are two basic types: electromechanical thermostats and digital thermostats. Each has its own unique advantages.

Types of Thermostats

Electromechanical Thermostats

These are the older types with little metal coils and a mercury tube inside. As the temperature in a room shifts, the coils either contract or expand, pushing the mercury to one end of its tube or the other which signals the HVAC system to either turn on or off. While they aren’t as accurate as digital models, they are quite economical and simple to use. This type of thermostat is being phased out because of its use of mercury and the effects it has on the environment. 

Digital Thermostats 

Digital thermostats are the new rage, with good reason. Most models today are programmable thermostats, which means you can set times for your system to run or shut down based on when you need it. Just set it and forget it! This thermostat is much more accurate at keeping your home comfortable. And because you have much more control, you can significantly save on your energy costs by reducing your heat and cooling when you don’t need as much.

Q: 01. How can I make my home feel less humid after a summer rainstorm?

Does your home feel too humid after a summer rainstorm? Here is a simple solution: run your air conditioning system a little longer than normal at a lower temperature than normal. Your air conditioning system is dehumidifying your home, while it is running. The system will draw all of the humidity out of your home and that cool feeling will return!

Zoning makes your home more comfortable and helps you save money on energy. Your home is divided into independent zones, as multiple thermostats are used. The climate is then independently controlled depending on your desired level of comfort in each zone. Most common examples of zoning are: separating the upstairs climate from the downstairs; establishing a special zones for sleeping and living areas.

By zoning, you have more control over different areas of your home, without having to regularly adjust the thermostat in order to reach desired level of comfort. Rooms inside your home, which are traditionally warmer than others, are easily cooled without placing extra strain on your HVAC system.

Regular maintenance is absolutely vital to the performance and lifespan of your heating/cooling system.

Benefits of regular maintenance are:

  • System will perform efficiently and you will be able to cut down on high energy costs
  • Prolong the life-span of the equipment; avoid unexpected and costly repairs
  • Maintain manufacturer’s warranty
  • Ensure system is running without risk to your health or/and safety
