When is it time to Upgrade Your Thermostat?
While homeowners generally understand when their furnace or A/C need to be replaced, home thermostats will oftentimes go decades without an upgrade. How do you know that it’s time to make a change? Since your thermostat is responsible for controlling and regulating HVAC functions, the thermostat should be upgraded at the same time as the system itself. An older thermostat will not be properly compatible with a furnace or A/C equipped with newer technology, which can be detrimental to the efficiency of the unit.

We carry numerous options from analog to marker switch and WiFi thermostats, and our technicians can tell you what would work best in your home.
