Digital vs. Programmable Thermostats

Digital thermostats are basically the digital version of the round, manual thermostats that you see on the walls of older buildings. They offer precise temperature control and easy–to–read displays. However, other than that, there really isn’t much difference between older manual thermostats and new, digital models.

But for homeowners looking for additional control over their home’s temperatures, programmable thermostats are a great option. They allow you to set certain times of the day for when your heating or air conditioning systems will turn on and at what temperature they will run. This means that when you leave for the day to go to work, your heating and air conditioning systems will automatically turn off when you leave. But you can also set them to turn back on 30 minutes before you come back home so that your house is nice and comfortable. This is a great way to reduce the amount of energy that you use in your home.

Chicago Wi–Fi Thermostat Installation

Another great option for homeowners that are interested in getting more control over their home’s heating and air conditioning systems is Wi–Fi thermostats. These types of thermostats are connected to the internet and allow you to adjust the temperature in your home from anywhere. All you have to do is access the internet and change the temperature remotely. If you forget to turn off your home’s air conditioning or heating system, you can just turn it off from your computer or mobile phone.

Common Chicago Thermostat Repairs

Here at Shavitz, we are the Chicago thermostat repair experts that our customers trust to get their home’s heating and air conditioning systems working again. While your thermostat might be small, it plays a huge roll in your home’s comfort. A damaged thermostat can seriously impact your comfort levels. These are a few of the most common thermostat problems that we see.

Not enough heating or cooling
This is a very common call that we get for both air conditioning systems and heating systems. While sometimes this is caused by a clogged air filter, the thermostats are often to blame. It could be that you just need to change the batteries but it could be that the thermostat is detecting the wrong temperature and might need to be recalibrated or replaced.
Heating and air conditioning systems not turning on
Again, this can sometimes be caused by other things, but it may be faulty thermostat wiring. Call the Chicago thermostat repair technicians at Shavitz.
