The thermostat is the most important component for HVAC control. Modern thermostats allow for improved comfort and efficiency; at Village Plumbing & Air, our experienced team will help find the best thermostat for your home.
Houston Thermostat Installation
Our Houston A/C services include providing a thermostat that gives you the most control of your HVAC system. We supply and install the highest quality thermostats and also offer a choice of models depending on your needs and expectations. If you still have an old manual thermostat, chances are it isn’t providing the accuracy needed for your A/C to work at peak efficiency.
While you can save energy by setting your thermostat up or down a few degrees, depending on the time of year, there’s no need to spend so much time fussing with the unit. At Village Plumbing & Air, we provide a choice of systems that can improve temperature control and reduce energy usage, including:
Program your HVAC’s temperature settings by time and day, for up to seven days. Some programmable thermostats are mechanical, similar to older style units, but digital devices provide more flexibility. They can include multiple temperature setbacks; the ability to set temperatures for when you go to sleep, wake up, or when not home; and create schedules for everyone. Adjust the temperature accordingly for hours you know the house won’t be occupied.
A smart thermostat can often be connected to your smart home hub. You can even control and program it from your smartphone, no matter where you are. Many smart thermostats can learn your habits and automatically create a schedule. Depending on the model, it can adapt your heating and cooling needs based on various parameters, including by tracking weather conditions outside. In addition, many models are compatible with popular voice assistants, while some have occupancy sensors to manage your A/C depending on whether anyone is home or not.
If you’re not looking for the complexity of a smart thermostat, a wireless unit can meet your needs. It can be controlled from a computer, tablet, or smartphone to precisely manage temperature. While Wi-Fi is a feature of all smart devices, a Wi-Fi thermostat isn’t necessarily smart; but it does offer more precision, can save energy, and help reduce heating and cooling costs.
When Do I Replace My Thermostat?
If your home isn’t comfortable, the thermostat doesn’t reach the set temperature, or displays false readings (and there’s no apparent need for A/C or furnace repair), the thermostat may be failing and need to be replaced. A programmable thermostat may be practical if no one is home for long periods of time. Also consider replacement if you have an analog thermostat, a unit over ten years old, your energy bills are high, or your HVAC system isn’t performing the way it should. You can always depend on our Houston A/C services professionals for assistance.

A condenser is the equipment people most recognize as their air conditioner. It’s the large box-like unit located on the outside of your home somewhere.
There are evaporator coils (in your attic unit) and condenser coils (on your outdoor equipment) they are both essential to the function of your HVAC system and it’s good to always keep them clean. Did you know dust & dirt is the #1 killer of HVAC systems?
Air Handler or Furnace
The furnace is the heart of your heating system, and is sometimes part of the air handler. The air handler connects to your duct system and can contain filters as well as heating and cooling elements.
