Thermostats St Louis – Wifi Thermostat, Programmable Thermostat
Enjoy energy efficient heating and cooling with a programmable thermostat.
Your home’s furnace may supply the heat, and the air conditioning unit cool air, but none of that would be possible without a thermostat. This small device located discreetly in your St. Louis home has the immense responsibility of controlling the temperature for your entire home. At Hely Heating & Air Conditioning we have installed thousands of HVAC thermostats in St Louis and Jefferson County homes, and are ready to help you enjoy greater energy efficiency in your home as well!
The days of the simple mercury thermostat are over. Today’s home owner has a variety of innovative thermostat options that can help then keep their in-home temperature consistent.
How Does a Thermostat Work?
If you look closely at the thermostat hanging on the wall, you are going to notice small vents on either side. The ambient air in your home passes through these vents, where its temperature is measured to determine the room temperature.
You set the desired temperature on the thermostat, and as it reads the room temperature it will determine if that temperature is being met. If you are in heating mode and it senses a temperature that is too cold, it will signal the furnace to kick on. If you are in cooling mode and the temperature of the air running through the vents is too high, it signals the central air conditioning unit in your home to start cycling.
All home thermostats run on this same principle, no matter what type they are. The efficiency factor comes into play when you consider programming the desired temperature to meet your home’s varying needs throughout the day.
Programmable Digital Thermostat
Hely Heating & Air can help you with your energy costs by installing a programmable digital thermostat into your St. Louis home. These allow you to set the temperature in advance for up to 7 days, and even for different times of the day. With a programmable thermostat you are able to run your furnace or air conditioning at the bare minimum during the day when no one is home, only to have it kick on automatically and make the house comfortable before you get home from work.
The same can be done in the evenings before your family goes to bed. By programming your digital thermostat to meet the desired temperature just before the first alarm clock sounds, you awaken to a comfortable temperature without having wasted energy during the night.
Zoning Systems in a St Louis Home
If you are the owner of a larger home with unused rooms and spaces, you should talk with a professional from Hely about a programmable thermostat and zoning system. A zoning system forces heated or cooled air into certain areas – or zones – of your home, while bypassing areas that are not regularly used. This type of system can increase your home’s efficiency and decrease your monthly energy costs exponentially.
