Thermostats

Taylorville, IL, Thermostat Repair and Replacement Service

Make no mistake: the thermostat is the brains of the heating and cooling operation.

Thermostats pay attention to the temperature inside your Springfield home, barking out orders to your furnace, air conditioner, boiler, or heat pumps for when to switch off and on.  And your thermostat keeps getting smarter—these days, you can invest in a thermostat that monitors household activity, so it knows when to adjust the temperature, along with maintenance reminders.

Many homeowners will invest heavily in their heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) but continue using the same old thermostat that came with their house. Upgrade that thermostat! Your system will operate more efficiently, and you will find yourself using less energy.

Best of all, you’ll enjoy improved indoor air quality (IAQ), as a new thermostat will have your HVAC components working in harmony with each other to control the temperature and humidity inside your home.

MB Heating and Cooling offers unsurpassed, customer-friendly service for your electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems. We are a bonded, licensed, and insured company that takes a lot of pride in our A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB).

What’s the Best Thermostat for My Home?

Central Illinois homeowners have a variety of options to choose from when it comes to HVAC thermostats. There are a few basic categories of thermostats that help homeowners save on heating and cooling energy. Each one provides different options for users:

Programmable Thermostat

Programmable thermostats allow you to set temperature schedules around your household occupancy schedules that adjust throughout the day. Set unique schedules for every day of the week, one for weekdays and one for weekends, weekday and Saturday/Sunday programs, or set schedules that run the same each day, depending on the model.

WiFi Thermostat

WiFi thermostats connect to your home’s Internet service. You can access the thermostat via your computer or mobile to make adjustments even when you’re not home. You may also have access to energy consumption data and maintenance reminders through your thermostat app.

Smart Thermostat

Smart thermostats remove scheduling altogether. Instead, they learn your daily schedules and temperature preferences, then automatically choose set points that maximize comfort as well as energy efficiency.

Why Is Thermostat Replacement Important?

Before programmable thermostats became popular about two decades ago, manual thermostats controlled your home heating and cooling equipment. While they did the job, they did little to improve system energy efficiency in the way newer models do.

If you wanted to change the temperature, you could only do so at the thermostat. You probably wouldn’t think to set back temperatures before leaving for the day.

Many of these older thermostats are still in use in homes across Central Illinois. Even though they function fine, they’re not necessarily the best option for your home and HVAC equipment. Upgrading to a newer model that allows for programming and beyond helps homeowners reduce energy waste and lower utility bills.

DIY Thermostat Installation vs. Professional Thermostat Installation

You can easily buy a thermostat online or from a home improvement store—and while you may think it’s easy to install, that’s not always the case. First, you must have a thermostat that is compatible with your home’s HVAC equipment. Next, you must follow wiring instructions without error to ensure the new thermostat accurately communicates with your heating and cooling systems.

Leave thermostat upgrades to the pros and call MB Heating & Cooling for professional thermostat installation. We will install it correctly while ensuring your new thermostat is compatible with your existing system and offers the specific features and capabilities you want.
