3 Thermostat Tips for the Summer

Monday, April 27th, 2015

You might not be aware that the thermostat you use to control your air conditioning system through a hot Texas summer is also a tool you can use to save money. Many homeowners set their thermostats with little regard for energy saving: they turn it down when they’re hot and back up when the house cools down enough. But this is usually a wasteful strategy that provides short-term comfort with long-term losses, both for energy bills and the air conditioner’s prospects for longevity.


Choosing Your New Thermostat in Corpus Christi, TX

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Your air conditioning and heating system has a number of different components, all of which perform some important role in the heating and cooling of your house. The fact of the matter is, though, that most of these components are hidden from view, some seldom seen while most never are. Far and away the most visible component of your HVAC system, as well as the one that you will use directly the most, is your thermostat. Considering the fact that it is with this device that you will regulate the operation of your heating and air conditioning equipment, it should come as no surprise that it is very important to choose your thermostat carefully. Here are a few options to consider so that you can heat and cool your Corpus Christi, TX home confidently and conveniently.

Digital Thermostats

For many people, a thermostat needs only to set the temperature in their home and nothing more. There is nothing wrong with such a simplistic view of your thermostat. However, keep in mind that the old, manual models with a dial or sliding switch, while simple, may not be the best way to go about controlling your HVAC system. Digital thermostats are actually, in some ways, even simpler. They feature push button controls that are a lot easier to use than manual models, and their digital displays make ensuring proper temperature settings easy to do.

Wireless Thermostats

Are you looking to upgrade your thermostat? If so, consider the installation of a wireless thermostat. This gives you great flexibility in terms of where your thermostat is installed, as it does not have to be hard wired into the system. It also makes for an installation and gives you the freedom to control your HVAC system from the couch or the bed.

Smart Thermostats

Technology, when used correctly, is truly a wonderful thing. Take unprecedented control over your HVAC system and the way in which energy is used in your home with a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats can be controlled remotely via an internet enabled device. You can track energy use throughout your home to see exactly how much is being consumed, when and why.
