When you put in a new home comfort system, it is important for you to have a proper thermostat that controls your new system. The wrong thermostat can cause issues with your furnace or air conditioner functioning correctly. At Peterman, we install a new thermostat with every installation. It is important to us that your system functions at it full capacity and efficiency.
Depending on the system you choose, we will install the correct thermostat for the system. Since each system has a number of different features, each thermostat is geared to control these specific features.

Money Saving Thermostat Tips
- Make sure your thermostat is in a position to give an accurate reading. If your thermostat is located in a draft, on a cold outside wall, in direct sunlight, or near a register it could give you an improper reading. A system that is set for 70 degrees, but is maintaining a temperature of 73 degrees, because the reading is inaccurate, can increase you fuel bills by up to 7 percent!
- If you are going to be gone for a few days on vacation, make sure you set your thermostat back. If no one is going to be in the home, there is no need to maintain your preferred temperature. However, be careful not to set your system below 55 degrees Fahrenheit to avoid freezing pipes.
- If you are comfortable with it you can also save money by setting your thermostat back at night when you go to bed. A programmable thermostat is great for this because it will automatically set it back about the time you go to bed. Dropping your thermostat by 1 degree for an eight-hour period can reduce your fuel bill by 1 percent!
- If you are have people over for a party, set your thermostat back. All the people in your house will raise the temperature of the home without using your heat. This saves energy and money on utility bills.
