Your thermostat is an important part of the operation of your HVAC system. With an inaccurate or poorly calibrated thermostat, your HVAC system will produce either too much or too little heating or cooling and your home will almost never be comfortable. For this reason, it is important that you have the right thermostat installed and that it is properly maintained.
If you are ready for a new thermostat or would like to discuss the operation of your current thermostat with one of our HVAC specialists, call Schaal Plumbing, Heating & Cooling today. We will work closely with you to ensure your home always has ample, steady heating and cooling.
The Benefits of Preventive Heater and Air Conditioner Maintenance
If you need a new thermostat in your Des Moines, IA home, now is the time to give us a call. Modern technology provides you with a number of options for your new thermostat, so it’s best to discuss with us what you would like to have for your home in advance.
One of the first things you should consider is the accuracy of your thermostat. Older, mechanical thermostats are only accurate within a few degrees of the temperature setting you choose. Newer thermostats are digital and can therefore be made accurate within 0.5 degrees depending on the HVAC system and air handler you have installed. They are also wireless and battery-operated, allowing you to move the thermostat in your home to whichever room you are in.
Preventive heating repair and maintenance in and around Des Moines, IA will keep your HVAC system running like new for longer, reduce the need for unexpected repairs, and prolong the life of every component in the system. You save money almost immediately by having a programmable thermostat. Not only, that but you have peace of mind knowing that your HVAC system will work when you need it to – when the temperature drops below freezing or rises above 90 degrees.
Maintenance of Your Existing Thermostat
It is important that you have your existing thermostat in Des Moines, IA serviced on a regular basis. This can be done during your routine heating or cooling maintenance visit or it can be done as a standalone maintenance call, but it should be done every year to test each thermostat in your home for accuracy.
If your thermostat is not working properly, it can be calibrated or replaced with a newer, more efficient model that matches the specific needs of your home. Thermostat repairs are also available if the problem is small and can be fixed in a single visit. We recommend you check your thermostats periodically for accuracy and if they are significantly inaccurate, call for service to check for the problem. This isn’t just an issue of comfort, but of energy efficiency.
