Sometimes, a homeowner upgrades their air conditioning and heating systems only to leave the same aging thermostat on the wall. As your technician may likely tell you, this shouldn’t have any effect on the way your heater or air conditioner operates as long as the thermostat is compatible (as it will still be calibrated and able to detect changes in temperature). However, you are missing out on the opportunity to save big time.
Whether your heating and air conditioning systems are brand new or ten years old, we recommend upgrading that wall thermostat to a smart thermostat you can control with your phone or tablet. Learn more about the benefits of smart thermostats and why you should make that upgrade in today’s guide.
