With the arrival of fall comes football, the changing of colors and colder weather. As the temperatures start to drop outside, it is important to make sure that your heating and cooling systems are prepared to keep you warm on the inside. A proper thermostat and HVAC inspection will ensure that your system is up and running to its optimal performance.
Many homeowners may be familiar with the older, more traditional circular thermostats that are in homes today, and while these do the general job of a thermostat (keep your house warm/cold when it needs to be); they do not offer you the options of zoning control and air quality control. Enter the new digital thermostats that are available today. These new thermostats, such as the Trane Comfortlink II, offering homeowners the ability to control how hot/cold it is in certain rooms, the quality of air that is coming into their household and even a digital photo frame! Some of these thermostats can be connected to your wireless internet and show you up to date weather, monitor your systems temperatures and how they relate to outdoor temperatures and also set up scheduling times for when the heating and cooling systems should be on and off. On top of these incredible options, the system also will help you save some money, by allowing you to keep a closer eye on when your heating and cooling systems are on and off.Have a room that no one uses? You can shut off the heating to that room with the thermostat instead of just shutting the vents to that room. In time these new digital thermostats will pay for themselves, and then more.
During this time of year it is important to have a heating and cooling system inspection, not only to help determine if you have any leaks or cracks in your system, but to also ensure that everything is in working order. It is important to note that while checking the filters in your system is important, it should not be considered an “inspection”. A full inspection conducted by a HVAC installer on your heating and cooling system will not only prevent potential damage and breakdowns in the future, but will also give you assurance that your system is running in peak operating condition. A full inspection should cover everything from ensuring that the system is running correctly during a normal cycle to checking carbon monoxide levels near the furnace/boiler and heat registers.
With a new digital thermostat and a heating and cooling system inspection done by a HVAC professional, you can ensure that your home will be warm and toasty during the upcoming winter months and that you will also have extra money in your pocket from the efficiency of your system and thermostat working together.
