Reasons to Replace Your Thermostat

While thermostats are pretty long-lasting, there are a number of reasons why you may need to replace yours. Here are five common reasons for replacing your thermostat:

  • Your thermostat is damaged. Not only will a damaged thermostat not work properly, it can also cause serious problems with your home’s wiring and HVAC unit.
  • You’ve replaced your furnace or AC unit. If you’ve upgraded your home’s heating or cooling system, it’s a good idea to upgrade your thermostat too.
  • Your thermostat and HVAC system aren’t working together. If you’re experiencing HVAC issues and nothing you’ve tried seems to do the trick, you could need a new thermostat.
  • Your thermostat is in the wrong place. If your thermostat is in working order but you aren’t getting even heating or cooling throughout your home, your thermostat could be in the wrong spot and sending the wrong signals to your furnace or AC unit.
  • Your thermostat is old. If your thermostat has hit the 35-year mark, it’s definitely time for an upgrade. Modern, digital thermostats are more reliable than outdated, dial-style ones.

If any of these sounds like something you’re experiencing, then it may be time for a new thermostat. Call Southern Pride Service today at (301) 932-4925 to schedule a new thermostat installation service.



Beneficial Features of Modern Smart Thermostats

As most of our technology has transitioned over to being “smart,” thermostats are not excluded. Modern smart thermostats include many beneficial features, including:

  • Compatibility with other smart devices. You can sync your smart thermostat to your home’s automated lights, music, and appliances. These systems can all work together as a smart home system.
  • Mobile and online convenience. With a smart thermostat, you can conveniently change temperature settings from your computer or smartphone.
  • Geofencing with your smart phone. By using your phone’s GPS, you can automate your HVAC savings by having your system turn on and off depending on whether you’re home or away.
  • Room-specific temperature settings. Smart thermostats allow you to control the temperatures of particular rooms in your home according to your needs and schedule.
  • Pattern learning. Some smart thermostats can learn your habits to help keep your home comfortable.

How do I choose a new thermostat?

When choosing a thermostat, it’s important to consider one that’s compatible with your HVAC system and what type of features you want. If you’re unsure of what type of thermostat is the right fit for you, one of our knowledgeable team members can assist you.

How long do thermostats usually last?

Thermostats are very long-lasting and typically last up to 35 years. At that point, it’s a good idea to replace it in order to be sure that you have a modern and efficient thermostat for your HVAC system and home’s comfort.


Are smart thermostats worth it?

Smart thermostats come with a variety of features that give you more control and convenience with your thermostat use and home’s comfort. If you want customized comfort throughout your home and remote control, then a smart thermostat would be worth your investment.


What’s the difference between a smart and programmable thermostat?

A programmable thermostat allows you to program your home’s heating and cooling system. A smart thermostat does the same but also learns your patterns and automatically adjusts the temperature in your home accordingly.


Can I install my thermostat myself?

We strongly advise against installing your thermostat yourself. Thermostat installation requires knowing exactly where to place it and how to properly install it for efficient functionality. If a thermostat is installed incorrectly, your home’s heating and cooling system won’t work efficiently.
