Thermostat Service, Repair, and Replacement
Your thermostat is a powerful tool. Not only does it give you the ability to control the temperature of your home, but it also can have a massive effect on its energy efficiency. For those looking to lower their monthly utility bills, servicing or replacing your thermostat is the best place to start.
Thermostat Service and Repairs
If you’ve noticed that the thermostat isn’t efficiently communicating with your HVAC system, you may need it serviced. Your unit may be dirty or damaged, preventing it from making a proper connection with your central heating unit or air conditioner. Our team of HVAC experts at Jake’s Heating, Air, and Plumbing can identify and resolve any issues that you may have with your home thermostat with a detailed inspection.
If you don’t live in a brand new house, your home most likely has an outdated thermostat. While still functional, older units don’t provide the energy efficiency or the flexibility that modern homeowners desire.
At Jake’s Heating, Air, and Plumbing, we specialize in installing these four types of thermostats:
Non-programmable thermostats – with simple controls and basic functionality, non-programmable thermostats are the perfect option for those looking for a straightforward, no-frills system. Simply set your desired temperature, and your HVAC system will activate and hold that temperature until you tell it otherwise.
Programmable thermostats – programmable thermostats give you the ability to create a heating and cooling “schedule” for your home. After setting a daily or weekly preset, the thermostat will automatically adjust the temperature while you are asleep or at work.
Wi-Fi thermostats – essentially, Wi-Fi thermostats work in the same way as their programmable counterparts with the additional ability to connect to the internet, allowing you to control your thermostat from your smartphone even when you’re away from home. If you travel frequently or have an unpredictable schedule, a Wi-Fi Thermostat is the best option for you.
Smart thermostats – in addition to the features of a Wi-Fi-equipped unit, smart thermostats work with other internet-connected devices in your home to “learn” your daily habits and adjust the temperature accordingly. While these thermostats are the most expensive options, they tend to pay for themselves thanks to their energy-saving capabilities.

How can I reduce my energy costs for heating?
- Upgrade to a high-efficiency furnace — New high-efficiency furnaces use up to 50% less fuel than an older system. It can save you up to 25 percent of your home-heating costs in one year, and within a few years, you’ll have recovered the initial cost of replacing/upgrading your furnace. Choosing a model with an energy efficient motor can save 20 to 50 percent of the energy needed to continuously operate a fan motor. Let us show you the advantages of replacing your old furnace today.
- Have an annual maintenance performed — Having an annual maintenance performed on your furnace by a licensed technician will help ensure it operates at its peak efficiency and catches any potential breakdowns before they occur.
- Install a programmable thermostat — A programmable thermostat enables you to control your home’s temperature when you’re away or asleep. For every 1° you lower your thermostat for seven hours per day, you save one percent on your heating bill.
- Don’t block vents in well-used rooms — Keep your supply and return air vents free of objects like blinds, carpets or furniture so your furnace can operate efficiently and there is even heat distribution.
- Install ceiling fans — Change the direction of airflow on your ceiling fans. In the winter, the blades should operate in a clockwise direction helping to push the warm air from the ceiling down into the room.
