Polar Bear Air Conditioning & Heating Inc - Thermostats

Thermostat Services in Washington, DC & Northern Virginia

For the most part, you are going to have very little interaction with most of the components of your HVAC system. You'll have to change air filters as needed, of course, and you may have to clean your condensate drain pan at some point. By and large, though, you won't have much hands-on time with this equipment.

A major exception to this, of course, is your thermostat. Your thermostat is the central control of your HVAC system at large, and it allows you to regulate the operation of your heating and air conditioning systems. If you are not able to do so successfully, the time may be right for a thermostat upgrade in Washington, DC.

There are a number of different thermostats that you may choose to use. Whichever you decide is right for your needs and user preferences, you can count on our technicians to install and service it properly. Contact Polar Bear Air Conditioning & Heating Inc today to discuss your options.

Why Consider a Thermostat Upgrade?

The most basic reason to consider upgrading your thermostat is so that you can start getting more from your HVAC system: more comfort, more convenience, and more efficiency. This is especially true if you are using a very old slide or dial thermostat. The simple fact of the matter is that you just cannot use those thermostats with the accuracy that newer models offer.

So what if I’m not setting the exact temperature I intended to, you may be thinking. At least I’m comfortable, right? Well, the ability to set your temperature accurately allows you to not only live comfortably, but to maintain the precise temperature that you’re going for. It may seem like a minor detail, but even setting the thermostat a few degrees higher or lower than you intended can translate into very real energy costs.

Choosing the Right Thermostat

You may not think that choosing a new thermostat in Washington, DC is a very serious decision. But there are actually quite a few to consider, and you don’t want to rush through the selection process. You don’t want bells and whistles that you won’t really utilize, but you also don’t want to miss out on a good opportunity for superior functionality.

Digital thermostats, in their most basic form, are ideal for those homeowners that really just want to keep things simple. The push–button controls and digital display make accurate temperature setting a breeze. Programmable thermostats take convenience a step further, allowing you to create a heating and cooling program designed around your own schedule.

Wireless thermostats allow the thermostat to travel the house with you. The temperature will register from wherever the wireless thermostat itself is situated, with a receiver hardwired into the system. No more getting out of bed to adjust the temperature at night!

Smart thermostats offer unparalleled convenience and potential for efficiency heating and cooling. Using a smart phone or other internet–enabled device, you can regulate the operation of your system even when you are not at home. Review energy reports for further usage details, integrate automation into your home, and more.
