If a climate control system gets worn down to the point where it can’t properly do its job anymore, most homeowners are pretty good about replacing it on time. The same can’t be said for thermostats. Though the thermostat serves a vital role in both heating and cooling, it is often neglected until it permanently breaks down. Things should never get that bad before you take action. Let’s take a look at why you should replace your thermostat this fall.
The thermostat is the brain of any climate control system. Without it, your heater or air conditioner couldn’t even function properly. Yet, it can often be much harder to detect an issue with a thermostat than it is with a climate control system. Thermostats develop problems in more subtle ways, usually as a result of years of wear and tear. For example, the dead zone (the temperature range in which a thermostat should activate, but doesn’t) will expand over time. This is because the sensor the thermostat uses to detect temperature changes will wear out and lose efficiency.
As the thermostat wears out, it will gradually lose control over the climate control systems. Less efficient operation means your systems will often run for longer, which costs you more money. This is why you need to make sure that you upgrade the thermostat more often. A new thermostat will not only be more efficient, it will likely also offer you a wide range of convenient options.
