Imagine how hard it would be to control your television without the help of a remote. We know there was a time when TVs were operated by a dial and antennae but those models are long gone. As technology has evolved, so have the controls used to operate them.
This applies to the systems that are used to boost your home comfort too. Your air conditioner today is far more advanced than its predecessors. Likewise, the system that is meant to control your AC system, your thermostat, has also advanced as well.
Updating your thermostat is a necessary air conditioning repair in Boca Raton, Florida. There are so many instances when we’ve been called to fix up a faulty AC system only to discover that the source of the problem is really the thermostat. With our help though, you can address the issue of your old thermostat and anything else that might be bugging your air conditioner.
How an Old Thermostat Messes With Your Comfort
It is a common misconception that an old thermostat paired with a newer air conditioner doesn’t pose a problem. However, this set-up, while functional, is more than likely going to be less than optimal.
An old thermostat is probably going to still be able to tell your AC unit what to do. However, it won’t be able to do this with the effectiveness or efficiency of a newer model. Old thermostats are also likely to be a little “off” when it comes to providing temperature readings making it more like that you will encounter a home that is never quite the temperature you want it to be.
So, put together the lower energy efficiency, reduced effectiveness, and then add in the fact that older thermostats don’t offer the perks that newer models do, and it all equals a good reason to upgrade.
