Whole–House Thermostats in Bellevue, WA

The HVAC system for a home is more than the air conditioner and heater at the heart of it. The thermostat is an essential component as well. In fact, it might be the essential component of a home comfort system because it’s the place where the people in the house activate and control the temperature. Without a working thermostat, a home doesn’t have a working climate control system.

One of the essential parts of an HVAC contractor’s job is working with thermostat issues as well as thermostat installations. S&L Mechanical Heating and Cooling works with many types of thermostats, and we’re dedicated to seeing that you receive the best service in Bellevue, WA or elsewhere in our service area. We treat every customer like they’re our only customer!

The Importance of the Thermostat

The thermostat is both a control panel for your HVAC system and a temperature sensor. The standard thermostat connects to the heater, air conditioner, and blower fan via different wires. The thermostat turns the heater, AC, and blower on and off using these different wires. If the thermostat should malfunction, it could mean any one of these components failing to turn on—or in some cases turn off. The problem with the thermostat could be as simple as a few degrees of miscalibration, or it might be wiring trouble. Having the right thermostat in top condition is essential for you to get the most out of your HVAC system.

Thermostat Installations or Replacements to Consider

When you have a new HVAC system installed, you’ll want to consider making a thermostat upgrade if you’ve only used a standard manual unit before. Here are thermostat models to think about for your next installation.

  • Digital Thermostats: Even the simple change to a digital thermostat with no programmable features can make a difference in your HVAC system’s performance. Digital thermostats are more precise, and this can shave off energy costs.
  • Programmable Thermostats: If you can afford it, go with a digital programmable thermostat. The ability to program the thermostat so it turns on and off when nobody is home is a great help in cutting down on unnecessary use and still enjoying the right temperatures when you come home.
  • Smart Wi–Fi Thermostats: The new technology of thermostats can learn from user settings to create their own settings that maximize energy use. These are called "smart" thermostats. Wi–Fi connections allow you to access your thermostat through a computer or an app on your phone or tablet from nearly anywhere.
