It’s Time to Upgrade Your Thermostat!

Monday, May 2nd, 2022

Your thermostat serves as the “brain” of your HVAC system. It communicates to what would otherwise be a mundane piece of cooling equipment, and turns your AC system into a monitoring device. Once the temperature reaches above the line where it’s comfortable, your AC switches on at the direction of your thermostat and starts cooling things off.

That’s why we think it’s so important to talk about thermostats, especially thermostats that are old or outdated. Newer temperature monitoring systems are able to be programmed to curb energy loss and cool your home in a more efficient manner.

For homeowners out there looking to improve their home cooling this spring, we urge you to keep reading! We’ll go into all the juicy details about how a smart thermostat in Melbourne, FL will improve your home comfort and reduce your monthly energy bill. Just make sure you call us if you’re ready for an upgrade!
