Keeping the Residents of Berks & Lehigh Counties Comfy

At Essig Plumbing & Heating, we offer a wide selection of thermostats for your home. Your thermostat plays a vital role in your home’s heating and cooling system, controlling the temperature of your home and powering your unit on or off. Over the years, there have been many upgrades made on thermostat units that improve overall quality while adding functions to give you convenience and comfort. If you are looking to upgrade your thermostat unit, our team can make recommendations based on your needs and budget.

There are many types of thermostats, including:

  • Manual thermostats– Often seen in older homes, these units have simple buttons and dials to control the temperature
  • Digital thermostats– These units provide a digital interface that allows you to easily read and control your home’s temperature
  • Programmable thermostats– Along with a digital interface, programmable interfaces give you the ability to set a schedule for when the unit will power on or off
  • Wireless thermostats– These units allow you to control the settings wirelessly through the use of a locally-synced remote
  • Wi-Fi enabled thermostats– These units offer the greatest convenience, giving you the ability to control your home’s cooling and heating system wherever you may be as long as you’re connected to a Wi-Fi

Smart Thermostats

Another type of thermostat that’s growing in popularity is smart thermostats. Smart thermostats, like the Nest Learning Thermostat and the Honeywell Home thermostat line, offer a number of benefits.

Some of the key benefits and features of smart thermostats include:

  • Complete comfort control and customization from your phone, computer, or tablet
  • Reduced energy usage and better efficiency, leading to reduced energy costs
  • The ability to save energy automatically when you’re not home
  • Easy programming for “set-it-and-forget-it” temperature control
  • The ability to check in on your home from anywhere using companion apps
  • Functional, modern, and aesthetically pleasing control panels
  • Energy usage analytics, allowing you to find new ways to save

Our team can help you determine if a smart thermostat is the right solution for your home. If so, we can help you have your new smart thermostat installed and ensure that everything is working properly so you can enjoy a better, more efficient, and more comfortable home.

Same-Day Thermostat Repairs

If you find that your thermostat is unresponsive or unpredictable, allow our team of technicians to find the problem and offer repair solutions. One common problem that can arise is that your heating and cooling unit will not turn on when selected to do so on your thermostat. Another issue that can arise is that your thermostat temperature reading does not represent the overall temperature of your home. Whatever the issue may be, our team can offer solutions that will get your home’s cooling and heating system back in working order.
