You could get used to features like an AC thermostat in St. Charles, MO that anticipates where in your home you want to be cool. Saving energy everywhere else, these smart thermostats and zoned systems help manage energy use and optimize comfort. Of course, basic thermostat installations offer quite a bit these days as well!

The key to getting the right thermostat is finding the features you want, and the connection technology that your HVAC equipment wants. Old-school heater thermostat wiring uses bundles of wires, with sometimes unpredictable color-coding. Get the connections wrong and you either damage the furnace or AC interface board, or problems like fans not starting occur.

Modern HVAC equipment may require a specialized thermostat, such as one with a reversing switch for summer and winter heat pump operation. Control for backup heat when it’s too cold for efficient heat pump operation is also useful. Humidity sensors are available when you have a whole-house humidifier or dehumidifier installed.

How do I select the right thermostat type for my home?

Instead of guessing what works with what in your St. Charles home and taking chances with wiring, have our expert thermostat installers visit. They’ll review the wide range of thermostat technology options, and match interface types for you. You just decide, relax, and give it a test drive after the thermostat installation. For smart thermostats, you may have a lot more energy-saving features to try!

Considerations for programmable thermostats include:
  • Manual programming or smart home with sensors
  • Zoned thermostats and damper control
  • Connecting by 5-wire, 7-wire, WiFi thermostats, etc.
  • Humidity sensor

You’re familiar with AC thermostats that turn on your compressor and air handling and blow cool air until you’re at the right temperature? Modern variable-speed AC systems need more information from your thermostat to modulate the cooling for a quick cooldown or casual breeze. Scott-Lee Heating Company helps you get the most out of your home’s HVAC equipment and its modern features!

Even among older heater thermostats and AC thermostats, the wiring needs to be right so all your options work. One example is fan-only mode, which uses a separate wire to help ventilate your home with minimal energy use. Our experts can relocate thermostat wiring for convenience or switch to a WiFi thermostat to give you more options like remote control and app operation. These are perfect for convenient, casual temperature adjustments. More sophisticated systems like zoned HVAC management that reroute comfort using dampers in the ductwork also employ wireless thermostat control and sensors.
