Thermostats in San Antonio, TX
The thermostat is an easily overlooked part of the HVAC system in a home—but it’s a part of it nonetheless, and an important part. Malfunctions with a thermostat, even a minor temperature reading miscalibration, can result in poor heating and cooling as well as needless energy waste in a house. However, you cannot tamper with a thermostat yourself (aside from adjusting its controls) and hope to fix it if it isn’t working. This job calls for specialists who can work with everything from old manual thermostats to the most advanced models.

We also carry quality new thermostats for people who want to update their HVAC system to the best in new technology.

Why the Thermostat Matters for Your Heating and Cooling
The thermostat is the place where you interact with the heater and air conditioner responsible for providing your home with comfort. When a thermostat breaks, such as losing its connection to the fan or compressor controls in the HVAC system, it will mean discomfort in your home and trouble such as a fan that won’t turn on or won’t turn off.
But small errors with a thermostat can result in trouble as well, things which you may not immediately notice. If a thermostat is miscalibrated, it will begin to turn the heating/cooling on and off at the incorrect time. This not only affects the temperature levels in the house, it can create unnecessary strain on the HVAC system that will drain money and lead to repair needs. Keeping your thermostat in the best shape is essential for getting the most from your heater and air conditioner.
Options for Upgrading to a New Thermostat
Often, the best solution for a thermostat that isn’t allowing you to receive the best performance from your HVAC system is to replace it with a more advanced model. There are many new types of thermostats now available that are a large step up from the old manual sliders–and–dials and no–frills digital models. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, call us to arrange for installation of one. A programmable model allows you to control the temperature in your home even when you are not there or not awake.
But you can go a step beyond programmability with Wi–Fi enabled thermostats so you can access the controls remotely from anyplace you have Wi–Fi connection using a computer, phone, tablet, or other device. These thermostats also give you the ability to program your home’s temperature by day of the week and time of day. We carry all three leading brands of wireless Wi–Fi programmable thermostats: Honeywell, Nest, and Founten.
