Although there are many high-end thermostats available on the market today, including energy-saving smart thermostats that come up with their own programming, at their core thermostats operate on a basic principle: they signal to the parts of the HVAC system when to turn on and turn off. If your thermostat and HVAC system are operating correctly, then all you need to do for comfort during a season is to find a single setting for the day when people are home and a different one for night and when people are away. For example, during cold weather, 68°F is the recommended daytime setting.
You shouldn’t need to continually adjust the thermostat throughout the day to be comfortable. If you find that you are—because the house always seems a bit too warm or a bit too cold—it’s a reason to be concerned about the HVAC system. The thermostat may be malfunctioning, or the heater could be. Either way, we recommend you call us for heater repair Sherman Oaks, CA.
