Thermostats

Thermostats help your heating and cooling equipment maintain the optimal temperature setting with the utmost energy efficiency. Today’s electronic models are a vast departure from earlier mechanical styles. Microprocessors allow you to program your home temperatures to suit your lifestyle, so you can keep things comfortable while you’re home and automatically set back your temperatures to save energy when you’re away or sleeping.

Electronic thermostats work in much the same way as older, manual thermostats did. The microprocessor inside compares the thermometer reading of a room’s temperature to the desired temperature you select. Then, it gives start and stop commands to the heating or cooling system to bring the temperature to a level that makes you comfortable.

Programmable thermostats basically work the same way, but they are far more convenient. Once you program the thermostat to customize the system’s operation to fit your lifestyle and schedule, all you have to do is relax and let it do all the work. You simply program into its memory the temperatures you need, at what time of the day, to stay comfortable and save energy all season. You only need to program it once – until the season or your lifestyle changes.

The most important way that a programmable thermostat saves energy is in its setback feature. When you don’t need a normal level of heating, you can program the thermostat to set the temperature back until the next pre-programmed time when you want normal temperatures. Programming temperatures around 63 F on cold winter nights, when you’re snuggled under blankets, can help you save as much as 15% on your heating costs. You can save even more by programming your system to “setback” the temperature when your family is away at work, at school, or on vacation.

Welsch had been doing the maintenance on my old system, which was replaced with a new one this winter. From the service on the old to the installation on the new, I have been very happy with the quality of the work and the excellent service I get from everyone...

I cannot remember the cost, but we got a new furnace and AC unit. They also installed a new thermostat that does wifi. I was pleased with their prompt, neat service.

Just want you to know how very happy we are with the excellent job Mike did on all of our copper gutters/flashing and dormers.

I just want to take a moment to thank you for the manner in which a service request was handled yesterday, May 29th. First of all thank you for getting a technician out here with a few hours. Secondly, I really appreciate the way the resolution to my problem was...
