Understanding Your Thermostat

Heating and cooling systems contribute to more than half of the electricity bills of an average American home. When any of these breaks down or works inefficiently, it will cause discomfort and lead to higher energy costs. If you ever notice your monthly energy bills are increasing without a noticeable cause, you can count on One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® of the Bay Area to provide solutions for repair, maintenance, or replacement of your air conditioning systems.

Your thermostat is the brain of your air conditioning system. When it ceases to work or malfunctions, it can be the leading cause of your discomfort. Understanding the components of your thermostat is the first step in being able to recognize if and when something goes wrong, thereby preventing costly repairs.

The Importance of a Thermostat’s Location

The Advantages of Programmable Thermostats

We are proud to offer installation services for programmable thermostats in a variety of brands and models. These technologically advanced thermostats offer several advantages to homeowners and are simple to install with reasonable prices.

The advantages of programmable thermostats include:

  • Reduced energy – The major benefit of using a thermostat is the capability to set the temperature for different times of the day. When you are away from your home, you can program your thermostat for less use. This will ultimately lead to more savings on your monthly bills.
  • Temperature control – With a zoned system, you can program exact temperatures for the specific rooms in your home. You’ll save money by skipping the rooms that don’t need as much air conditioning.
  • Savings – By being in control of when your air conditioning kicks on and how much it cools the specific rooms in your home, you’ll notice that your monthly bills are lowered.
