Unfortunately, many homes in Denver and Boulder still use outdated mercury thermostats. Not only are these thermostats inefficient, but they could even be hazardous to both the environment and your health. Luckily, replacing your old thermostat with a programmable digital thermostat is more affordable than you may think, especially with the help of the experts at Applewood.
Applewood’s thermostat experts specialize in finding and installing the right programmable digital thermostats for Denver and Boulder homes. Installing a modern thermostat can have a surprisingly significant and immediate positive impact on your quality of life, and they’re cheap and easy to install, as well. Here’s everything you should know about digital thermostats, how they work, why you should install one, and how Applewood can help find the right thermostat for you.
What is a Digital Thermostat?
All thermostats work by measuring the air temperature within a physical system. Your home thermostat measures the air temperature of the rooms in your home, for instance. Digital thermostats use electrical components to measure air temperature instead of mechanical components. These electrical components can be programmed, allowing you to set the temperature of your home at all times, or even tell your thermostat when you do or do not want to activate your HVAC system.
Why Should I Install a Digital Thermostat?
Digital thermostats offer several considerable advantages over conventional thermostats, especially if your thermostat is outdated or faulty. Here are a couple of reasons to consider switching to a digital thermostat:
- Save money on energy bills. Several of the digital thermostats Applewood offers are designed to conserve energy use by specific pre-programmed settings.
- More precise temperature control. Today’s digital thermostats use electronic controls to achieve precise temperature performance. These thermostats can also alert you if there’s ever a problem that is interfering with the temperature control.
- Convenience and ease of use. Digital thermostats are easier to use than their conventional counterparts. All you have to do is program the thermostat once, and it will remember your heating and cooling routines.
- Use heat more efficiently. If you have a non-programmable thermostat, you probably leave your thermostat on while you’re out so your home will be comfortable when you get back. With the help of a programmable thermostat, however, you can turn off your heat while you’re away and set it to heat back up just before you get home. You’ll use less heat and save money without experiencing any change in comfort or warmth!
