REGULATE THE TEMPERATURE IN YOUR HOME
A thermostat is a device for regulating the temperature of a heating and air conditioning system so that the temperature you set is maintained. Thermostats do this by controlling the flow of hot or cold energy into or out of the system. The thermostat switches heating or cooling devices on or off as needed to maintain the temperature you have chosen.
Evaluating your needs for any home heating project is a necessity and YellowBird Services does this to determine the feasibility of installing Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) thermostats. We can also address your HVAC thermostat repair issues.
With the latest heating and air conditioning technology and the desire for energy conservation many of the older styled thermostats simply do not provide the level of control you want or desire.
THE NEW SMART SI THERMOSTAT
The Smart Si is Wi-Fi enabled, so you can make adjustments to your thermostat from your tablet, computer, iPhone or Smart Phone. An easy to read high-resolution color display, sleek buttons, and an intuitive user interface makes it easy to quickly set a personalized program, adjust your settings and create new vacation events whenever you need to.
The Smart Si has a built-in live weather function and uses advanced algorithms so you can be sure your thermostat is always saving the most energy possible. (Now that’s smart!) Automatic alerts and reminders notify you when your HVAC equipment is due for service, if there is an equipment malfunction or when it’s time to change your filter, so you don’t have to worry about it.
Did you know that setting an energy-saving program through your thermostat is one of the easiest ways to reduce your energy consumption and save money? A research study conducted by the ecobee Energy Modeling Team found that ecobee customers save an average of 26% on their annual energy costs!*
*Versus the benchmark of leaving their thermostat on hold at 72 degrees Fahrenheit or 22 degrees Celsius.
WHERE TO LOCATE MY THERMOSTAT
Your thermostat should be located away from the room’s cooling or heating vents or device, yet exposed to general airflow from the room(s) to be regulated. An open hallway may be most appropriate for a single zone system, where living rooms and bedrooms are operated as a single zone. If the hallway may be closed by doors from the regulated spaces then these should be left open when the system is in use. If the thermostat is too close to the source controlled, then the system will tend to “short cycle”, and numerous starts and stops can be annoying and in some cases shorten equipment life. A multiple zoned system can save considerable energy by regulating individual spaces, allowing unused rooms to vary in temperature by turning off the heating and cooling.
