Jacksonville Thermostat Installation
Although it may not look like much, your thermostat acts as the brain of your air conditioning and heating system, receiving signals from thermo-sensors and internal programming to decide when to turn on and when to shut off.
In the past, thermostats were often controlled through a water- and steam-based system to sense the surrounding air temperature. More common now are forced-air air conditioning systems that can be set to only switch on when the surrounding temperature falls below or rises above a specific temperature. While these were revolutionary when they were invented, technology has far surpassed this method.
Nowadays, homeowners can choose from many different thermostats to find one that’s best suited for their homes. The older systems we described can be difficult to deal with, especially in spring and fall.
Programmable thermostats can be used to change the temperature at certain times of the day. When used correctly, these systems can lead to significant savings on your energy bill, because they’re made to make the house comfortable while you’re there and use less energy when you’re away.
The Nest Learning Thermostat is a digital thermostat that brings beauty and function together. Using your phone, tablet, or computer, you can program the thermostat around your family’s schedule so you’re only using what you need when you need it.
Some of its capabilities are found below:
- Full-color touch screen
- Wi-Fi capability
- Access from your phone, tablet or computer
- Being qualified as an Energy Star product
If you’re more old school or just don’t need a lot of bells and whistles, you might choose to go with a manual or unprogrammable thermostat. Although they are available in both digital and traditional options, they require someone to physically change the temperature if the house grows too hot or cold.
