Thermostats

At Shanklin Heating & Air Conditioning, we are committed to educating our customers about their heating and cooling systems. One important part of your system is the thermostat. Your thermostat helps you control the comfort level for your family and save money by keeping the room temperature consistent. There are a number of considerations to keep in mind when choosing the right thermostat for your needs. A thermostat is a tool for controlling the temperature of your heating and air conditioning system so that the temperature is maintained near a set temperature. The thermostat does this by adjusting the flow of heat energy into or out of your heating or cooling system. Sometimes older style thermostats do not provide the level of control and comfort you want.

Programmable Thermostats

At Shanklin Heating & Air Conditioning we offer thermostats with the best technology available with user-friendly programmable options. Programmable thermostats allow you to adjust the times you turn on the heating or air-conditioning according to a pre-set schedule. Programmable thermostats can store and repeat multiple daily settings. Having a programmable thermostat can save on energy and money when installed correctly by one of our professional technicians. Programmable thermostats are a low voltage wiring installation and involve anywhere from 2–10 wires, depending on your type of heating and cooling system. If your job requires a replacement or new installation, call Shanklin Heating & Air Conditioning to ensure the proper equipment and installation, as well as operation with your heating and cooling system.

Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats fall in two different categories: The type that learn automatically from your behavior and adjust themselves accordingly, and the type that offer internet connectivity for remote management and programming. Thermostats that learn your behavior automatically are not the best choice for people that do not have a consistent schedule. These thermostats have a difficulty “learning” your schedule because it is not consistent causing problems which affect your level of comfort. Thermostats that offer internet connectivity have a wide variety of features. The basic feature of these thermostats allow you to control all your home’s environmental setting from afar via computer, smart phone or tablet.  The idea behind these thermostats is to allow you to set the desired temperature before you return home.

Location

Your thermostat should be located away from the room's cooling or heating vents or device, yet exposed to general airflow from the room(s) to be regulated. An open hallway may be most appropriate for a single zone system, where living rooms and bedrooms are operated as a single zone. If the hallway may be closed by doors from the regulated spaces then these should be left open when the system is in use. If the thermostat is too close to the source controlled, then the system will tend to "short cycle", and numerous starts and stops can be annoying and in some cases shorten equipment life. A multiple zoned system can save considerable energy by regulating individual spaces, allowing unused rooms to vary in temperature by turning off the heating and cooling.
