Your residential air conditioning system can only work as well as the sum of its parts. Not only should your ductwork and AC unit be in working condition, but you also need to have a thermostat that is functional and able to keep up with the demand of the heat we see in Winter Haven and across Polk County. Using an incompatible thermostat with your air conditioner can end up costing you more money on your utility bills. Not all thermostats work the same.
At Florida Air Express, we want to ensure that your central air conditioner has everything it needs to function its best. Choosing the correct thermostat is very difficult if you aren’t sure how HVAC systems work and what brands are compatible. Working with our experienced team will help you take the guesswork out of choosing the best thermostat for your home.
Types of Thermostats
As a customer, you may feel overwhelmed by the types of thermostats and brands available that seem to do all the same things. At FAE, just like any other products we offer, we highly recommend Comfortmaker’s programmable thermostats. They offer five types of thermostats that range in price and functionality. Some of the Ion system thermostats are Wi-Fi-enabled and have 10-year warranties, just like other Comfortmaker air condition and heating products. Programmable thermostats are great at keeping your home energy efficient and your utility bills more affordable. Although some of these offerings are smart thermostats, you won’t need internet service to operate them, as the wi-fi provides optional interfaces. Our goal is to improve the level your home’s overall energy efficiency.
If you have a Comfortmaker air conditioner, we absolutely want to use the same brand for your thermostat. When you use the same brands for all your HVAC products, you’re more likely to have a system that works well above efficiency standards.
Leave it to the Experts
Our FAE team has over 30 years of HVAC experience installing every part of your system. The only way to install a thermostat is to leave it to the professionals. Thermostats are tricky because you need to have a complete understanding of your equipment and the wiring. The more sophisticated the HVAC, the more advanced your thermostat will need to be. Deferring these wiring responsibilities to the Florida Air Express experts is the best way to go for your overall system’s integrity. Your personal preference and budget will also influence the final thermostat choice, and we can walk you through that process. But remember, this is not the time to DIY. If your product came with a warranty, you could void it by having someone not certified doing the work.
