Modern Thermostats work beyond simple temperature control as they're designed to be the main interface for your AC & Heating equipment's inner workings. Thermostats can measure temperature, humidity and in certain units even report on the energy performance of your HVAC equipment.
Depending on the level of control and information you need, different types of Thermostats are available
These are simple digital readout units with controls for heating, cooling and temperature. These types of thermostats measure temperature where the unit is installed. Before any Air Conditioning & Heating Installation, Baker Brothers HVAC technicians will show you the various manufacturer thermostat options available to provide you with exactly the level of control you need.
A programmable thermostat gives you a set of controls to set up heating or cooling temperatures for certain times of each day and in some cases, per season. For example, as you leave your house each day, you may want to decrease cooling costs by having the temperature set higher after you leave, but then have your house cool and comfortable by the time you get home. Setting up a schedule like this can help you save big on your annual utility bills and even extend the life of your HVAC equipment.
Ask a Baker Brothers HVAC technician about the best schedule to use for each season to maximize your energy bill savings.
These types of thermostats represent the latest in cutting edge comfort technology. In combination with multiple temperature sensors, a smart thermostat can learn when your home is occupied and in combination with seasonal and weather data, set the optimum temperature for your home for you. Smart thermostats are also coupled with a smartphone app to let you control the thermostat from anywhere in the world* as well as provide you with usage and energy savings reports
If your current thermostat is not working properly, please first check the following:
Baker Brothers recommends Honeywell Thermostats for their reliability, ease of use and compatibility with most HVAC equipment. Prior to installing a new Thermostat, Baker Brothers HVAC Technicians must first determine if you have the proper wiring required by the thermostat manufacturer or if additional wiring will have to be added. If for any reason we cannot install the proper wiring we will recommend an alternative brand that will still give you your desired level of comfort control and features.
