People are very concerned about the heating and air conditioning systems in their homes, and they should be.

Thermostat Installation Can Be Surprisingly Complicated
Many people assume that one spot is as good as another when it comes to the thermostat. But nothing can be further from the truth. Temperatures can vary a great deal in your Westchester County home, depending on how old it is, the amount of insulation in the walls, and the presence of drafts or cold spots. In some cases, you may struggle to make your home comfortable solely because the thermostat is near a window with lots of sunlight, or it sits next to a poorly insulated external wall. Trust Yost & Campbell Heating, Cooling & Generators to perform a quality installation service that avoids all these problems, ensuring not only that your thermostat is put in properly, but that it’s located in the right spot as well!
When to Replace Your Thermostat
A thermostat rarely encounters repair needs, so many people will use theirs for many years. It can be hard to know when to replace your thermostats in those conditions. Generally speaking, you should look into a new model every 10 or 15 years or so. If you still use an old thermostat with a mercury switch, you should get it changed regardless. (Mercury is dangerous and should not be kept in the home.) Beyond that, you may wish to switch up your old digital system for an upgraded model. Or it may simply be that a new unit will work better with your heater and air conditioner. Whatever the reason, our team is here to help!
Look for Options When Replacing Your Thermostat
Many thermostats can go for decades or more without needing to be replaced, and if the one in your Westchester County home is still going, that’s great. However, if it’s more than ten years old or so, you may have missed out on some exciting advances, and when you schedule thermostat replacement, make sure you look at those options. For example, a simple digital thermostat can be replaced with a smart model that anticipates your needs, while wireless thermostats can be set up to get around complex installation issues.
