Should I replace my thermostat?

A thermostat regulates the temperature of your house by running the heater or air conditioner until the temperature reaches the desired setting. Older thermostats do not respond as well and therefore can be replaced, but will doing so save you any money? As it turns out, yes.

You can purchase and install programmable thermostats that allow you to run your heater or air conditioning only during certain times of the day when you’re home, thus saving money you may otherwise spend by keeping the house temperature conditioned all day. Interested in replacing your thermostat? You can hire your local heating and air conditioning company to do that for you.
