Thermostat Installation & Repair in Champaign, IL

Signs You Need a New Thermostat

The thermostat is the brains of the HVAC system. It tells your heating and air conditioning system when to be hot or cold and when to turn on or off. When there’s a problem with your brain, there’s a problem with everything else in your body. The same is true for your thermostat. If your thermostat isn’t working properly, neither is your HVAC system. Here are some clear signs it’s time to update your thermostat:

HVAC System Won’t Turn On or Off

Your thermostat controls when your HVAC system should turn on and off. If you are locked out of your thermostat because the display won’t turn on, then something is wrong with your thermostat. It might not be getting an accurate reading on the house temperature, or it might have a bad connection with the furnace and air conditioner. Either way, this is a major sign you need a new thermostat. 

Thermostat is Over 10 Years Old

The average lifespan of a thermostat is 10 years. This doesn’t mean that your thermostat will instantly stop working the day it hits the 10-year mark. However, technology can change a lot in 10 years, and thermostat technology is no exception. Upgrading to a new and more modern thermostat will give you more control over your heating and cooling system than you ever had in the past. We can provide you with a smart or programmable thermostat for your home.

Controls Are Unresponsive

You need responsive controls to make your home comfortable on command. If you set your thermostat but it takes a long time for your changes to take effect, or they don’t take effect at all, then it means there is a disconnect between your thermostat and your heating and cooling system. A new thermostat can help reestablish this connection and restore climate control in your home. 

You Experience Uneven Heating In Your House

When you notice that some rooms in your house are warmer or colder than others, this is a sign that your thermostat is not getting an accurate reading on your whole house. This could be because of where the thermostat is located, or because it is giving faulty readings. Either way, your home should be the same temperature throughout. If it’s not, call the professional technicians at Edelman Inc. to troubleshoot the issue. 

Upgrade to a New Smart Thermostat

Smart thermostats are the latest and greatest update in HVAC technology. Not only can a smart thermostat, also referred to as a Wi-Fi or wireless thermostat, be controlled from your phone, tablet, or virtual assistant, you can also set schedules throughout the day to keep your energy bills down. In fact, many smart thermostats claim they help users save up to 30% on energy costs.

Wireless thermostats learn your patterns and have sensors to tell when people are awake in the home. They also monitor local weather conditions. So if your thermostat is set to a comfortable temperature, but there is a sudden drop in temperature, your thermostat can help keep you comfortable no matter the weather. 

Your smart thermostat can provide you with important data about your energy usage so there are no surprise bills. You can also set up certain smart thermostats to remind you when your HVAC needs seasonal maintenance.

We also offer programmable thermostats for our Champaign, IL customers. While not as sophisticated as a smart or Wi-Fi thermostat, programmable thermostats allow you to pre-set the temperature in your home to coincide with when you’re home, away at work or sleeping for increased energy savings.
