Can an Old Thermostat Cost you Money on Your Energy Bill?

replacing a thermostat

Do you feel like you’re paying too much to heat and cool your home? If you have an older or malfunctioning thermostat, it could be costing you extra money. Many people often overlook the thermostat as part of the HVAC system. But it’s an essential component in controlling and maintaining your heating and cooling. 

How Thermostat Replacements Can Reduce Energy Costs

Older thermostat models and those not working correctly can cause your HVAC system to run continuously. This inefficiency can spike your energy bills and place a great deal of wear on your HVAC system, costing you more money for maintenance down the road. Here are just a few of the ways a thermostat replacement can reduce your energy costs.

A newer thermostat allows you to set the exact temperature you desire during the day or night. More recent models are accurate within 1 degree.

You can use your phone to adjust temperatures based on local weather conditions.

You can heat or cool select rooms in your house for greater temperate control.

You can program your thermostat to heat up or cool down at specific times of the day, so you never have to remember to change it.

Save money by increasing energy efficiency levels to reduce utility costs.
