3 Reasons You May Need a New Thermostat for Your Home
Winters in the Phoenix, AZ metro area can be quite cold in the evenings but a bit warmer during the day. That is why it is important to have a properly functioning home thermostat. But if you are experiencing difficulty in setting a comfortable indoor temperature, please read on.
A malfunctioning thermostat is a common reason why homeowners could be having these types of climate control issues. So, we have put together a few possible reasons why you may need a new thermostat for your home.
Your Thermostat is too Old
For the vast majority of common home thermostats, the average useful lifespan is typically somewhere between 10-20 years. That said, you don’t necessarily need to wait until the day your old thermostat stops working in order to replace it. To the contrary, as technology in HVAC systems advances over the years, it may be wise to upgrade/replace your home’s thermostat before it stops working. There are additional benefits to regularly replacing your thermostat every several years, including the fact that as a thermostat ages, it’s energy efficiency declines. That could mean a higher utility bill as well as a decrease in reliability.
Your Thermostat Lacks Programmable Capability
Many older thermostats are not programmable. This is a good reason to upgrade to one that is…commonly referred to as a “smart” thermostat. Smart thermostats are more energy efficient and can even be controlled remotely via a smart phone. This makes is easy and convenient to manage your home’s temperature no matter where you are which can save you money on your energy bills.
Your Thermostat has a Blank Screen
When your thermostat’s screen appears as blank, even with a fresh set of batteries, you may want to consider replacing your thermostat.
That is because a blank thermostat screen may be an indication of a more serious issue with the unit (could be defective). Thus, you may simply want to get it replaced with a new thermostat to ensure that you can reliably set your indoor temperature of your home to keep your loved ones comfortable all winter long.
