Is It Time for a Thermostat Upgrade?

AC repair

When you start seeing signs that suggest you may need AC repair, it is natural to assume it may be the filter or some internal parts causing the problem. Air Pros wants to take a moment to point out that you may actually need a thermostat update to resolve certain air conditioning issues and enjoy the level of comfort you expect.

What an Outdated or Damaged Thermostat Does

Letting thermostat problems linger means you may end up needing an AC replacement sooner than what’s typical for a cooling system. This is because your thermostat is primarily responsible for telling your air conditioning system how to operate and how long to run. When a thermostat is no longer capable of doing what it is supposed to do, the entire cooling system may be affected by:

  • Cycles that run too long and contribute to excess wear-and-tear
  • Short, frequent cycles that over-stress various parts and components
  • A need to work too hard to achieve the desired temperature in your home

Signs You May Need a Thermostat Update

It is not always obvious that it is time for a thermostat upgrade. Nonetheless, be on the lookout for signs suggesting you likely have thermostat issues. Four of these are:

  1. An inside temperature that’s never right
  2. A cooling system that doesn’t turn on and off with its normal pattern
  3. Regularly having to turn your thermostat up just to get your system to kick in
  4. Temperature changing erratically on the thermostat for no apparent reason

A simple way to test your thermostat is to adjust the settings to a temperature you know normally triggers your air conditioning unit to operate. If you do not get a reaction, your thermostat probably needs some attention from our Air Pros technicians. In addition, if you have an older standard thermostat that’s not performing well, an upgrade is worth considering.

Thermostat Options to Consider

A new traditional, non-programmable thermostat can be a good investment if you are not away from home too much. Additionally, even a standard thermostat that’s working as intended can help keep your cooling or HVAC system operating correctly.

Programmable thermostats are becoming increasingly popular today among homeowners in many areas in Florida. These are highly efficient thermostats that can be programmed with different settings for specific times of the day or days of the week.

There are also WiFi and “smart” thermostats that are also programmable. The difference is that they are designed to connect to a wireless network. Some newer models will even learn your comfort preferences over time and conduct automatic adjustments to further boost efficiency.
