Frequently Asked Questions on Thermostats

ThermostatsDo you have questions on thermostats?  If your home isn’t as comfortable as it used to be, the problem may not be with your heating and cooling system. Instead, you could be having an issue with your thermostat. You should get in touch with the professionals with Metro Express Service to see if your current system can be repaired or you should consider having a new one installed. Programmable thermostats are incredibly easy to use and can help you save a lot of money on your energy bills each month.

Thermostat Tips

A thermostat, of course, regulates a heating and cooling system so that your indoor environment remains comfortable. Older models, however, don’t provide the type of control the programmable ones can offer. If you’re not home during the day, for example, you can set a programmable thermostat to preset the temperature so that you’re not wasting energy cooling your house while no one’s around. Instead of having it set at 73 degrees when you’re home, for example, you could set it to 78 so your AC doesn’t have to work as hard all day long.

One of the most important things to keep in mind is the location of the unit. You want to have it exposed to airflow but away from your heating and cooling equipment. If you have it located too close to an air vent or a register, your system may cycle on and off too often. This will result in a shortened lifespan and a more frequent need for repairs. The experts with Metro Express Service can come to your home and recommend the right location for your new thermostat.
