Types Of Thermostats

It is important to know your options if you are considering upgrading your thermostat. The majority of newer homes typically already have a digital programmable thermostat… but what does that even mean? Here we have a quick guide to common thermostats and a few of their features:

DIGITAL THERMOSTAT (NON-PROGRAMMABLE) – this is a manual thermostat, so it allows the AC to run until it is shut off. The digital part of this unit is specifically speaking of the display–it is similar to reading a calculator output

DIGITAL THERMOSTAT (PROGRAMMABLE) – quite similar to the above but can be programmed to regulate the temperature on its own. These units are quite common and allow you to leave home without having to worry about the AC running around the clock

WIRELESS THERMOSTAT – also known as a WiFi thermostat, this technology allows you to control the temperature from your smartphone from anywhere in the world. It is easy to use and easy to change when your schedule varies

SMART THERMOSTAT – these are the newest thermostats on the market. They also can be controlled remotely from your phone, but their unique feature is the fact that they learn your schedule and adjust the temperature accordingly. Unfortunately, there are a few bugs with these thermostats, and changing their ‘learned behaviors can be difficult

Choosing The Best Thermostat For Your Home

Once you think you have a certain type of thermostat narrowed down for your home, the next steps will include choosing the brand and having it installed. Before we get that far, let’s talk a bit more about WiFi and smart thermostats. As exciting as it may be to have a thermostat that learns your behavior, you also must think about how often your actual behavior changes. If your schedule is relatively rigid and you leave at a set time, come home at a set time, and sleep during certain hours, these units might be a perfect match for you.

However, most people realize that life happens and being able to easily adjust your thermostat on the way home from a short day at work or after a later than usual night at the office is important. WiFi thermostats give you the ability to do just that. As with anything, new technology will have bugs and issues that will be fixed with time. Until these issues are fixed, it may be better to stick to a WiFi thermostat and wait until the bugs are worked out of these ‘smart’ ones.

Advantages of smart thermostats:

  • Save on energy cost

  • Automatic filter change alerts

  • Programmable temperatures based on your schedule

  • Humidity control

  • Remote control temperature settings

As the summer heats up, you’ll naturally be using your air conditioner more and more. This is an effective way to beat the heat, but extensive use of your AC unit can cause wear and tear, or reveal existing problems. We at Sky HVAC want to help you and your family stay comfortable this summer, and to help you do that, our team has put together a list of signs to watch for in order to tell if you need air conditioner repair. Blows Warm Air - One clear sign that something is up with your air conditioner is warm air coming from your vents. If you put your hand by a vent and feel warm air, you probably need air conditioner repair. Makes Loud Noises - Another sign you should be wary of is loud or unusual noises coming from your AC unit. All air conditioners will make some noise as they run, but if you hear grinding, screeching, or scraping sounds from your unit, you should call our team at Sky HVAC to find out if you need air conditioner repair. Smells Bad - Your air conditioner is not supposed to stink. If you notice a bad smell coming from your unit when you turn it on, it’s likely that you need air conditioner repair. A musty smell usually indicates mold somewhere in your system, while a burned smell is likely the result of wire insulation burning out. If you notice any of these signs in your home or find something else unusual happening in your air conditioner, call our team at Sky HVAC. We’ll identify the problem and get your AC running smoothly as soon as possible.

Here at Sky HVAC, we specialize in all things air conditioning, and we want to help you stay cool this summer. Our team believes that the best way to help you take care of your air conditioning unit is to help you understand how it works. Knowing the principles behind your air conditioning unit will help you spot potential problems early and take care of them before they can become serious—or expensive. From our experts at Sky HVAC, here is a brief overview of how air conditioning works. Despite its association with cooling, the principle behind air conditioning is the transfer of heat. The typical air conditioning unit consists of an evaporator, a compressor, a condenser coil, and a fan. The evaporator is located inside the home, and contains a refrigerant that absorbs the heat energy from your home; as this happens, the refrigerant evaporates, hence the name. From there, the heat absorbed in the evaporator is transferred to the condenser coil, located in the exterior half of your air conditioning system. Also located outside with the condenser are the compressor and the fan. The compressor keeps refrigerant circulating throughout your system so that heat can be continually absorbed. Similarly, the fan keeps hot air moving out of your home. We hope that this article has been helpful to you. If you are experiencing problems with your air conditioning, or have further questions on how your unit operates, feel free to call our team at Sky HVAC.
