Learn More About This Unit Type:

A thermostat is a device that is used to regulate temperature, though it’s normally related to heating simply because it works together with the furnace. When the temperature inside a space turns low and you need some heat, it activates the furnace. If it’s the other way around, it boosts the air-conditioning unit.

These days, it’s rare to find thermostats that are mechanical, which normally come with levers and a dial so you can set the temperature. Most of the thermostats are already programmable, shutting off or turning on the heating and cooling systems depending on your desired temperature.

Because of how they are designed to work, thermostats are very sensitive to even slight changes in temperature. That’s why you have to maintain them so they can detect only correct temperature. Sometimes dust can cause a false reading, which may mean an A/C running even when you’re not around. Faulty readings can actually increase electric bills to as much as 7%.

On the other hand, there are times when thermostats have to be replaced, perhaps due to significant wear and tear or corrosion. Unless you maintain the units, however, you may not be able to know that it’s time to make the replacement.
