Improper Installation of Wi-fi Thermostats Is A Problem

By // 2014.09.16

Improper Installation of Wifi ThermostatsImproper Installation of Wi-Fi Thermostats by Cable and Security Companies

Did you know that an improperly installed WiFi Thermostat could lead to significant issues for homeowners in the Phoenix Valley? From increases in energy bills to complete system breakdown, a recent outbreak in poorly installed programmable thermostats by inexperienced cable and security technicians are causing more problems than they should. There are several reasons for this.

Why An HVAC Specialist Should Always Install Anything Related To HVAC

First – Lack Of Proper Training Leads To Several Improper Installations Of Wi-Fi Thermostats

It’s often assumed that if you have basic knowledge about electrical components you can pretty much install anything electronic inside a house. This statement holds true when the piece of electronic equipment is not specialized. However, programmable thermostats are very detailed systems that require extensive training directly from the manufacturer and a complete understanding of the HVAC system they operate.

Sadly, many cable and security companies have begun to offer programmable thermostat sales and installations as an extra service for creating ‘smart homes’. Most of these companies have their technicians take a quick one-hour training class on how to install these systems.

Lacking from these training courses includes:

  • Detailed instructions on how to install programmable WiFi thermostats for specific HVAC systems. Contrary to popular belief, not all HVAC systems are created equal. In fact, every manufacturer, type, style and size of AC or heating system requires specific types of thermostats, wiring, and set up procedures to be completed. This experience is often gained through years of practical, on-the-job training.
  • No instruction on emergency situations. A common problem with HVAC thermostat installation is that they don’t always go ‘by the book’. This is when an experienced HVAC technician has the practical knowledge to adapt to changes and properly install, calibrate and test the unit.

By // 2014.09.02

Trane air conditioning unitsYou simply can’t go wrong with Trane Air Conditioning Units. As a dependable manufacturer of quality built HVAC units for over 100 years, Trane has truly set itself apart from the competition for several reasons.

Three Reasons Why Trane AC Systems Are Perfect For Arizona Homeowners

First – Trane AC Units Are Dependable

It’s easy to make a claim about a product; however, the proof in the pudding is when a claim can be supported by facts. Here is why Trane air conditioning units are regarded as one of the most dependable air conditioning systems sold in America today:

  • • Trane AC system is manufactured using high quality materials. When you buy any major appliance, what is the first thing that sales people will often tell you? Traditionally it’s that the unit is ‘Made in the USA’. However, have you ever wondered why that is important? The primary reason is the raw materials used in construction in the United States are not shipped from overseas. When you have access to quality materials instantly, and you use those high-end materials in every product you manufacture, the direct result is a quality piece.
  • • Trane Systems are a shining example of ingenuity in action. When Trane launched several decades ago, they were setting a standard in new technology. Nothing has changed in over 80 years on the consumer market.

How To Shop For The Best Programmable Thermostat For Your AC

By // 2014.08.26

best programmable thermostatAs technology advances, comfortable living inside your home tends to improve as well. And one of the best improvements in modern comfort systems in recent years is the invention of the programmable thermostat. Today it’s quite possible to program your internal thermostat from virtually anywhere on the planet. With Wi-Fi connectivity, built-in smart phone applications and even advanced temperature controls installed on the new programmable thermostats, it’s become wise for homeowners to actively seek the best programmable thermostat for the best possible price.

3 Tips To Help Find The Best Thermostats For Your Comfort & Pocketbook

First – Speak With Your HVAC Contractor

Believe it or not, your best source of information about programmable thermostats is the company or individual that sells and installs them daily. Here is why:

  • HVAC contractors work on several brands and different types of AC systems each day. They know the reality that every traditional system operates best with specific supporting components. Another way to describe this is that they understand that just because you have Brand “A” appliance, doesn’t always mean that Brand “B” is best suited to work with it. So, don’t be afraid to ask the HVAC expert their opinion. They’ll steer you in the right direction.
  • HVAC contractors traditionally don’t work on commission. Believe it or not, most of the installers work on an hourly basis and are not usually compelled to upsell a unit that people won’t need.
  • HVAC contractors know which units give the best value. Installing and showing up for home repairs, an HVAC contractor can often give input as to which programmable thermostats are ‘less than reliable’.
