Heating & Air Conditioning Thermostat Service in Colorado Springs
Most people are aware of how to use a thermostat, but do you know how one works? That depends on the type of thermostat installed in your home or business. All thermostats control the temperature of your home or business. Older homes and businesses have mercury switch thermostats, which are actually two thermostats in one. The cover of the thermostat shows the current temperature, while the dial at the top controls what temperature you prefer the thermostat set to. The controlling elements found in these switches are the interaction of the liquid metal mercury stored in two little vials and electricity. Wired thermostats utilize your existing electrical wiring and are directly hooked into relays that are, in turn, connected to your heating and A/C units.
Digital thermostats, which are fast becoming the standard, use a device called a thermistor when measuring temperature. In the thermistor is a resistor that allows electrical resistance to measure changes in the temperature. There is a micro-controller within the thermostat that measures this resistance and converts it into a standard temperature measurement.
Digital thermostats can do things standard thermostats can’t. For one, they are programmable, allowing you to turn up the heat for an hour or two in the mornings while you get ready for your day or turn it down for a vacation. System zoning is another fantastic feature of digital thermostats, allowing you to set individual temperature per ‘zone’ or room.
Some modern thermostats can even talk to you, alerting you to servicing needs or when you should change your filters. Of course, we can’t forget to include the smart thermostat, which is linked to your internet and can be programmed from a smartphone or other mobile device.
