Why Is Thermostat Installation an Important Part of Heating Service?

Friday, November 14th, 2014

Your thermostat controls when your system operates and the temperature of your home. As such, having the right thermostat for your home can be a great tool for achieving the control you want over your home’s heating. There are a few choices when it comes to installing a new thermostat, and with any upgrade to your heating system, it’s best to have installation performed by a professional. Roznovak specialists have been offering comprehensive heating service in Georgetown since 1979, including thermostat installation, so call us today!

Why Install a New Thermostat?

Here are a few reasons why an upgraded thermostat can help you and your heating system:

  • Better energy efficiency – with a programmable thermostat, you can program your heating according to your schedule and accommodate for times when your home is occupied or unoccupied. This allows you to gain great control over when and how much you heat, which can help you reduce your energy usage.
  • Better comfort – the precision and accuracy of digital thermostats allows you to set an exact temperature setting versus aiming for one, as can be the case with slide or dial thermostats. This can help improve your comfort level.
  • Less wear on your system – with a programmable thermostat, you will most likely use less heating, which means your system will operate less. Less operation means less wear on your system.
  • Convenience – it can be challenging to remember to turn down your heating when you leave for work during the week or when you go to bed. With a programmable thermostat, this isn’t an issue as you can set the program to handle all the temperature changes you want.

What Are My Choices?

  • Digital
  • Programmable
  • Smart
  • Wireless

Upgrading your thermostat can help you increase your energy efficiency and comfort while also helping your heating system. If you are ready for a new thermostat, call Roznovak and schedule an appointment for residential heating service in Georgetown today.

How Can Thermostats Help With Energy Efficiency?

Friday, September 12th, 2014

When we think of saving energy with our household systems, many times it can entail a big change – a new air conditioning system, a new furnace, new windows, etc. But there is a way to become much more energy efficient without having to overhaul your entire system: update your thermostat.

Your thermostat controls the cycling of your air conditioner, and there is a lot of power in that. Being able to precisely to control how you cool (and heat) at all times of the day is a key factor in saving energy. This is why Roznovak’s Services offers thermostat installation and replacement as one of its many air conditioning services in Austin, TX.

Types of Thermostats Available

There are three types of thermostats Roznovak’s Services carries, and each offers important energy-saving benefits:

  • Digital
  • Wireless
  • Smart

Digital Thermostats

Digital Thermostats offer three important features that you won’t get with slide or dial thermostats: precision, easy-to-use buttons and an easily readable face. The precision digital thermostats offer allow you to set an exact temperature, which can help you save energy.

Wireless Thermostats

Wireless thermostats do not need to be hardwired into your heating system. They can be placed anywhere and usually come with a remote control for convenience. But the most important energy-saving aspect of wireless thermostats is that they are programmable: they can be programmed in 7 day increments that can be looped or changed as needed. Programming allows you to set temperatures that can accommodate for times of low-to no occupancy, weekends and vacations; the result less energy usage.

Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats offer you precision, programmability, energy usage reports and remote access from virtually anywhere. By downloading a simple app to your smart device(s), you can track, monitor, program and change your energy usage from anywhere that you can access the internet.

Upgrading your thermostat can help you to be more energy efficient, save money and improve your comfort level, all at the same time. Thermostat installation is just one of the many air conditioning services we offer in Austin, TX. Interested in upgrading your thermostat? Call Roznovak’s Services today.
