Thermostat Best Practices for Fall
Fall is the season to make adjustments that will translate to continued household comfort and potential cost savings throughout the winter. At [company name], we recommend the following thermostat tips to help homeowners in Las Cruces and the surrounding areas prepare for lower temperatures.
Check Thermostat Batteries
An HVAC system’s thermostat is the component that regulates the home’s temperature. Therefore, it is important to inspect the thermostat before the start of a new season. Thermostats have batteries that need to be replaced from time to time. Newer systems make it easier to know when a battery needs to be replaced. Modern systems indicate the need for battery replacement by making a beeping sound, or the system may have a low battery indicator light.
Older homes typically have manual thermostats, which need to be adjusted as the temperature fluctuates during the autumn season. Frequently adjusting the thermostat from heating to cooling can overload the HVAC system. Therefore, if you own an older home, you may wish to consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat that eliminates the need to manually adjust from hot to cold and back each time the weather changes.
Install a Zoned System
Traditional HVAC systems are designed to heat up the entire home simultaneously. As an alternative, you may install multiple thermostats and heat your home in zones. Using multiple thermostats allows for greater control over the temperature in different areas and may also translate to cost savings. One of our licensed HVAC technicians can provide additional information about whether a zoned system would be an effective solution, depending on your unique requirements and objectives.
