How can I regulate the temperature in my home?
At McCarthy's One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning, we evaluate your needs for any home heating project to determine the feasibility of installing Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) thermostats, and assess your heating and air conditioning thermostat repair issues.
A thermostat is a device for regulating the temperature of a heating and air conditioning system so that the temperature is maintained near a desired set temperature. The thermostat does this by controlling the flow of heat energy into or out of the system. That is, the thermostat switches heating or cooling devices on or off as needed to maintain the correct temperature.
Unfortunately, with today's heating and air conditioning needs and the desire for energy conservation many of the older styled thermostats simply do not provide the level of control you want and desire.
Your thermostat should be located in an area that is exposed to general airflow from the room you want to regulate. 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.
