Why Do I Need Sewickley Thermostat Replacement?

If you already have an operational thermostat in your home, with time, you may begin to wonder if you need to replace it. Thermostats can become less efficient as they age, and it’s possible that you’ll wish for a newer unit that will save you money on your electricity bill.

For those with broken thermostats wondering if they really need their system in summer or winter, the easy answer is yes. A properly functioning thermostat will keep your family warm, cool your home in the sweltering heat, and can even prevent your pipes from bursting in winter. In addition to these benefits, choosing a programmable thermostat can:

  • Improve your home’s zone temperature control
  • Require less adjustment
  • Cause less stress on your HVAC system
  • Lower your energy bills
  • Come with advanced features such as WiFi connectivity

Our Sewickley Thermostat Replacement Service

Choosing an ideal thermostat for your home isn’t always black and white. Removing your current thermostat and installing a new one isn’t either. Our swift Sewickley thermostat replacement service gives you royal treatment, assisting throughout the entire project from start to finish.

How do we help you choose the right thermostat for your home? There’s much to consider. First off, you’ll need to find out what type of HVAC system you have in your home. Depending on your answer, you’ll choose from one of two options:

  1. Low Voltage Thermostat: For systems that use central furnaces, boilers, or heat pumps to regulate temperature.
  2. Line Voltage Thermostat: For systems that use electricity to heat their homes, i.e. those with baseboard heating.

Now that you know which type of thermostat your home needs, you can get into the specifics of what you and your family need. Our expert team will walk you through your options of different types of thermostats, which come in several major types:

Manual Thermostats

This type is your entry-level unit and is controlled manually. They don’t have smart features and can’t be programmed, but they’ll be consistent throughout the years and are ideal for homes that don’t need anything complicated. They’re also a great option for those with smaller budgets as they are the most affordable type on the market.

Smart Thermostats

Want all the bells and whistles? Choose a smart thermostat that automatically adjusts your HVAC system to your home’s current condition. They can be controlled via an app on your smartphone, and some can even detect activity in your home, turning on heating or cooling based on your preset preferences. Smart units can be pricey, but they can also help you save money.

Programmable Thermostats

This type of thermostat can be programmed on a specific schedule to turn on or off throughout the day. This means the temperature in your home may be lowered during the day when you aren’t home or up an hour before you knock off from work to ensure your home is the right temperature when you arrive.

Now that you’ve selected the ideal thermostat for your home and family, we’ll set up an installation date and convenient appointment time that suits your preferences. On installation day, we’ll arrive on time with all the tools needed for the job. Removing your old unit and installing the new one, we’ll be sure to take all the mess with us and leave your home in excellent condition. We’ll walk you through how to use your new unit and will be available for any follow-up questions you have in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sewickley Thermostat Replacement

Can I Replace My Thermostat Myself?

It’s possible to replace your thermostat yourself, but you will need several tools, safety equipment, and some knowledge of carpentry and electrical. Installations can vary depending on the type of thermostat model you’re dealing with, so if you do decide to take this on yourself, carefully read the instructions. The basic tools you’ll need for the job include:

  • A screwdriver with the appropriate tip
  • Power drill
  • New thermostat
  • Masking tape
  • Wood or drywall screws

While installation processes may vary slightly, the basic process of installing a thermostat is as follows:

  1. Turn off the power to your HVAC system
  2. Remove the old thermostat
  3. Disconnect the wires from the back of the old unit while labeling which wire is which
  4. Connect the new thermostat’s wires to the ones in your wall
  5. Mount the new thermostat to the wall with the hardware it came with
  6. Turn on your new thermostat and set it to your preferences

When replacing your thermostat, you may run into trouble with the wiring, put yourself at risk of electric shock, and possibly blow a circuit breaker or damage the new unit. If you’d rather not risk it, our valued team can help. We’ll arrive with all the right equipment and expert knowledge needed for the job.

Can I Replace My Existing Thermostat With Any Thermostat?

Yes, you can replace your existing or outdated thermostat with a new, smart one. While at first newer digital units may not seem compatible with older homes, the differences are only in how they operate, not how they connect to your home’s HVAC system.

That said, there are certain types of modern units that are not compatible with older homes, so it’s important to do your research before investing in one. Our HVAC Service Professionals can help sort through the confusion. We know exactly which units to recommend for your building.
