Torrance Thermostat Servicing & Installation
Helping Your Heating & Air System Work as Efficiently as Possible
Heating your home is expensive, especially if you are using an electric furnace. One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to reduce your home heating costs is to install a programmable thermostat that automatically turns off your furnace when heat is not needed.
Many of the problems linked to heating and cooling your home can often be linked back to the thermostat. Sometimes there are easy solutions like it’s just out of adjustment or the batteries need to be replaced. If you think your thermostat is acting up, the first thing you can do is to try replacing the batteries. In most cases, this is a simple repair that any homeowner can tackle by reading the owner’s manual of your thermostat.
If your thermostat says one temperature and you know the room is another, it’s possible that the thermostat may be dirty and needs to be cleaned or otherwise adjusted. You can carefully use a soft brush to gently remove dust and dirt. Some types of thermostats need to be properly seated on the wall and if they are tilted they will measure the temperature inaccurately. Or, your thermostat might not have been installed in a place where it can get an accurate reading.
If you don’t already have a programmable thermostat in your home, or if your thermostat isn’t working properly, give us a call! Carter Services can help you save a lot of money by repairing your thermostat or installing a new state-of-the-art unit in your home.
