The Top Reasons to Consider Replacing Your Thermostat

Unsurprisingly, thermostats have come a long way in recent years, and they now offer more features, controls, and precision than ever before. However, if you still have a manual thermostat in your home, you may be wondering what makes digital thermostats so different from manual ones, and if there are any benefits to upgrading.

So why would anyone want to replace theirs? Hot Flashes and Cold Chills If your thermostat is producing sudden temperature swings, it doesn't mean it has the flu. It means it's either failing to sense the ambient temperature of the room or zone it's meant to monitor, or it's sending inadequate information to the furnace or air conditioning system.
