Grand Rapids, MI Thermostat Services

Many homeowners are unaware that the right thermostat can significantly improve the comfort of their home immediately. Thermostat technology has made leaps and bounds in the last decade. With the ability to control your entire home’s HVAC system from the comfort of your phone, people everywhere are making the upgrade.

If you want to experience the difference of working with a new, optimally installed thermostat, A-1 Mechanical is here to help.


Is it Time for a New Thermostat?

The thermostat is like the brain of your HVAC system. If your thermostat is broken, your heating and air conditioning will not function properly, leaving you in a less than ideal situation inside of your home.

Here are some of the most common signs we see from our customers when they are ready for new thermostat replacement and installation.

The HVAC System Doesn’t Turn On or Off

The primary function of your home’s thermostat is to communicate with the HVAC system to tell it when to turn on and off. If your HVAC system isn’t turning on or off when it’s supposed to, then your thermostat could be damaged or frayed. A technician can inspect the thermostat and tell you whether it can be repaired or whether it should be replaced.

You Have an Older Thermostat

You can expect a thermostat to last about 10 years on average. There are times when it will last longer, but it is time for a replacement if it breaks when it is this old. The thermostat’s make and model and company that performed the installation are also factors in how long it will last.

The Controls Don’t Work

If you try to set your thermostat, and there is no change to your home’s temperature, the controls may not be working.

If the connection between your current thermostat and the HVAC system is broken, you will want to have a new thermostat installed to fix the connection. Get back control of the temperature within your home with an upgraded thermostat from a team of professionals you can trust.

You Find Hot and Cold Spots

An uneven temperature throughout your home shows that something is not working right with your HVAC system. A common problem is that your thermostat is not reading the temperature correctly and is now creating hot and cold spots throughout the home.

The problem could be because your thermostat was installed in the incorrect place, or it is no longer able to function correctly. If you find uneven temperatures and cannot regulate the temperature in your home, it’s time to call A-1 Mechanical for a repair.

Faulty thermostat readings

If your thermostat starts registering incorrect readings, you should consider installing a new thermostat. You can test your thermostat’s readings by using a portable indoor thermometer. If the temperature readings don’t match, the issue could be related to a defect, misuse or old age.

Invest in a New Smart Thermostat

Realizing that your current thermostat does not work optimally is the first step to making your home as efficient as possible. Smart thermostats’ advanced technology allows homeowners to have complete control over their home’s HVAC system and energy bills. It is no surprise that people all over Michigan are making the switch to a smart thermostat.

What Is a Smart Thermostat?

A smart thermostat is also called a wireless thermostat, or a Wi-Fi thermostat. It allows you to control your thermostat from your phone or tablet. You can also pre-set the temperature according to the time or day. For example, you can set the thermostat higher from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the week throughout the summer while you’re away at work for extra energy savings.

This is an excellent way to optimize your heating and cooling system, and it will decrease your energy bills. Smart thermostats are also able to monitor weather conditions and can even adjust accordingly during sudden changes in the weather. Regardless of what the weather is like outside, you will have a comfortable environment within your home.

Whether you are looking to upgrade your current home or you are moving into a new build, a smart thermostat from the team at A-1 Mechanical is the right choice for you and your home.

I called after hours and spoke to a machine, but they called me back bright and early the next day to set up an appointment. The technician who came out to my home was friendly and worked quickly, and cautioned me about the need for more frequent servicing without giving me a “hard sell” or being pushy.
