Expert Thermostat Consultants
Is your thermostat not functioning properly? Are you thinking of thermostat installation for your next HVAC project? Let the local HVAC experts at Metro Express Service help evaluate your needs for any home heating project to determine the feasibility of the project or the possibility of repairing your existing thermostat.
Thermostats regulate temperature of air conditioning and heating systems so your home or office environment maintains a desired, comfortable temperature. This is accomplished by regulating the flow of heat energy into and out of the system to create a satisfying environment for you and your family. The thermostat switches your heating and cooling systems on and off based on keeping a constant temperature with minimal variation.
Todays needs for heating and cooling, in addition to a desire for energy efficiency in all products, lead to older styles of thermostats not providing adequate control. Most newer thermostat models are programmable, so homeowners can program preset temperature designations for various times of day and different days of the week. Less energy is used, with more money saved, because thermostats can be set to a lower threshold when the home is not occupied, like when residents are at work and school.
Location is the Key
Locate thermostats away from cooling and heating devices but exposed to the airflow within the space to be heated and cooled. If rooms are open to a central hallway, a single-zone thermostat may be mounted here to optimally register regulated temperatures. Try not to close doors between the thermostat and the space to be controlled for the most accurate temperature regulation of a space.
Professional HVAC Installation
Locating the thermostat too close to the source of controlled air, such as a register or air vent, can lead to the system cycling frequently. These frequent starts and stops, in some cases, can lead to a shortened lifespan for your air conditioning and heating systems. Installing a multiple zone system is a source of vast energy savings, allowing for the individual control of separate spaces. Occupied rooms can be controlled while unoccupied areas can be turned off. Call Metro Express Service to discuss the potential for installation of a multi-zone thermostat system. Our informed technicians can assist in determining the approximate cost and potential energy savings of such an installation.
We Know Thermostats
While some minor thermostat problems can be solved by following our recommendations, some issues are beyond average homeowners. For example, the low voltage wiring installation of programmable thermostats can involve up to ten wires, depending on the type of air conditioning and heating systems with which it will be integrated. This is not a do-it-yourself job. Rather than take the risk of improperly wiring a new thermostat, get the help of professional thermostat installation from Metro Express Service. Our trained HVAC technicians will be able to properly install and repair thermostat equipment.
