How To Tell You Need a Thermostat Upgrade

You can’t achieve optimal comfort in your home with just a good heating system. You need a good thermostat too! The thermostat is the control center for your heating system and without it, you have no way to adjust the temperature in the home, let alone turn the heater on.

You really aren’t going to have a heater without a thermostat in a modern home. But you might have an outdated thermostat that is causing you trouble too. Older thermostats are going to be systems that might make it harder to run your heating system effectively and efficiently. This can be resolved by a thermostat upgrade in Oklahoma City—but how do you know you have an outdated thermostat in your home?

We have 5 indicators to check for that will alert you to the need for a new thermostat in your home.

  1. The temperature never seems correct

    No matter what the setting is on your thermostat, it feels like the temperature in your home is just wrong. Maybe things are too cold or perhaps they are even too hot. Whichever is the case, this may be due to a thermostat that can’t detect temperatures well any more and needs replacement.

  2. The thermostat has a delayed response

    You go to turn on your thermostat but when you try to increase your indoor temperature the thermostat seems to be ignoring you. If there is a delay in your thermostat’s response to you or, worse, it doesn’t respond at all, it is a sign that you should replace this system.

  3. The heater is short cycling

    Your heater turns on for a few minutes but then shuts off before it completes a full heating cycle. This is extremely hard on your heater and is a sign of a problem with your thermostat as well. Upgrading your thermostat can actually help improve the well-being of your thermostat and can help improve its efficiency.

  4. Your thermostat is older than your home comfort system

    Age is important to consider when assessing the condition of any part of your HVAC system, your thermostat included. An older thermostat is going to be one to replace. A good rule of thumb to remember is that, if you have replaced either your AC or heater but not your thermostat, it is a good idea to also replace the thermostat.

  5. You have a slider thermostat

    Slider thermostats are going to be something that you can feel okay with replacing on sight. Sliders are going to be older and much more inefficient to use. On top of this, slider thermostats are less effective at providing good temperature control. Make sure to look into upgrading your thermostat if you have a slider model.
