The thermostat is the core of every heating and cooling system you use, whether at home or at work. Any time you want to interact with your heater or air conditioner, at least in terms of climate control, you relay your instructions through the thermostat. That can make the thermostat key to keeping your home comfortable, or one of the greatest inconveniences – it all depends on what condition the device is in.
Luckily we can help with any of your thermostat needs. Call Pelletier Mechanical Services, LLC today or click below if you have questions about our services in Greater Waterbury or want to schedule your free estimate!
Now, you may be thinking "but I’ve already got a thermostat. Why would I need a new one?" We’re glad you asked! There are all sorts of reasons that someone would choose to replace their current thermostat with a new one.
Because your thermostat is so central to the operation of your heating and cooling systems, the development of a problem can have wide-reaching negative effects. A thermostat that has a faulty sensor can no longer reliably detect the temperature changes in the air around it. This makes it more or less useless for climate control. Old, worn out circuits can also cause the thermostat to send conflicting signals to your heating and cooling systems, causing issues like short–cycling that can actually damage them.
However, many people actually just replace their thermostats because they want more functionality. Every few years, a new thermostat type comes out that puts older ones to shame. These days, homeowners can choose wireless thermostats, hourly programmable thermostats, and even thermostats that learn your climate control habits. A few weeks with these adaptable thermostats and you may not need to ever touch them again; they’ll just do all the work for you.
Installing a thermostat isn’t as simple as sticking it to a wall. The device will need to be properly wired, which you’ll want done by a professional with knowledge of the process. This is especially true if the house is older, in which case some of the wiring may have to be replaced so the system can handle the new thermostat. It’s not the most complicated service we offer, but that doesn’t make it any less important. Let us install your new thermostat for you, and we’ll make sure that it gets done right.
Not all thermostat problems require that you replace the entire device. In fact, most of them can be solved by simply swapping out the broken parts. Still, this isn’t really something you want to be doing without professional experience.
