Curious About Thermostats?

Thermostats have become a regular fixture in our lives and homes.  From manual thermostats to programmable thermostats to even wireless thermostats we are no longer at a point where we should simply see them as unattractive art work on the wall.  Since they have such a direct impact on our lives it is a good idea to know a little bit more about them.

Tips on Installation of Thermostats:

  • A thermostat should be placed on an interior wall
  • Make sure that it is away from things like:  windows, doors, bright lights, heating/cooling vents or any other source of heat etc…
  • Shut off electricity before attempting this!
  • If the job seems bigger than you think or you are a little unsure…call an HVAC contractor (such as FLAME).

Manual Thermostat Tips:

If you are not quite ready to take the programmable plunge, that does not mean that you miss out on all the savings.  Energy Star just recommends that you adjust the thermostat for when you leave during the day (if you are gone most of the day) and when you go to sleep at night.  They say that changing the temperature 5-8 degrees (down in the Winter and up in the Summer) helps!

The other option is wireless thermostats that are portable and allow you to monitor your home’s temperature from anywhere in your home.  For more information contact FLAME or check out the Energy Star site where this information comes from.
