I never really knew the importance of our thermostat system until just recently.
- I mean, when you think about it, your thermostat system is really the brain in your heating and cooling system.
The thermostat unit is what controls both your furnace, your air conditioning, and your ventilation system. If you don’t have a properly working thermostat, then your home’s indoor air quality is definitely going to suffer. Not only that, but if your thermostat’s batteries need to be changed or if there is some other issue going on with it, then it’s going to adversely affect the costs of your heating and cooling system. You might end up with very high cooling bills one month, even when you haven’t been using your A/C very much at all. That could all be because your thermostat is out of whack and your A/C is short cycling or something like that. If your thermostat is working incorrectly, then you are going to have issues coming out as symptoms in the rest of your HVAC system. It’s just like if you are having a problem in your nervous system. It really affects the rest of your body. Whenever I read this explanation on one of the HVAC blogs that I follow, it made lots of sense to me. Before I read about this, I never really understood the importance of the thermostat system in the scope of your entire HVAC system. Now I know that it’s probably the most important part! If your thermostat is torn up, then nothing else is going to work and you’re going to be in trouble, that’s for sure.
