Thermostats are crucial to making sure you get the most out of your HVAC system. How old is your home’s thermostat? Is it time to upgrade to a device that helps your Frederick, MD home’s heating and cooling systems run as efficiently as they should?
When you’re ready to replace your old thermostat with a new smart one, Wenbrooke Services has the skills and expertise you need to ensure your new thermostat is installed correctly and fully functional.
Benefits of Pro Thermostat Replacement
Wenbrooke Services’ HVAC specialists provide reliable, friendly thermostat services. They’re knowledgeable about all types of thermostats and trained in installing, repairing, and replacing all the latest models, including smart devices.
Installing a thermostat, particularly one of the newer “smart” ones, is usually a job best left to a professional HVAC service provider. Why? Whereas older thermostats typically run on batteries, newer versions require a continuous power supply. They require a second wire, known as a C-wire, to complete the circuit so power flows continuously to the device. Unless you’re trained to work with electricity, calling in a skilled technician from Wenbrooke Services is recommended.
Types of Thermostats
There are three popular types of thermostats to choose from:
- Manual thermostats are the most basic and least expensive choice. They are not Wi-Fi-enabled and cannot be programmed. They’re best for homeowners who wish to adjust the temperature of their home manually.
- Programmable thermostats let you pre-schedule temperatures throughout the day. For instance, you can lower the temperature overnight or during the day when everyone is out of the house. Programming is manual, but you can generally set many different timings.
- Smart thermostats adapt to the needs of your home and adjust the temperature when they sense activity. Wi-Fi-enabled thermostats also collect energy use, can sync to your smartphone or other devices, and alert you to maintenance needs in your HVAC system. ENERGY STAR-certified thermostats reduce billions of pounds of gas emissions every year and help you save money on your electric bills.
If you like your current thermostat but it needs to be repaired, Wenbrooke Services can handle that, too. One of our technicians will inspect the device, determine the problem, and make any necessary repairs. They can also recommend replacing the thermostat if it’s no longer working to keep your home evenly cooled or heated.
Why Choose Wenbrooke Services for Thermostat Services
The electrical wiring work required to install a smart thermostat can be challenging for DIYers. An experienced, qualified electrician is usually a better, smarter choice for the job.
