Seasonal Heating & Cooling Auto-changeover
El Paso and Las Cruces will still experience some cool temperatures before the warmer weather arrives to stay. In fact, daily we are experiencing cool morning temps and thermostats calling for heat and by later in the day, the thermostat is calling for cooling.
There are many factors to take into consideration when purchasing a new heating and cooling system: size, style, brand, number of stages, warranty, and the THERMOSTAT.
The thermostat is the part of the heating and cooling system that calls for the heating or cooling. In El Paso this week, probably the most convenient feature in a new thermostat is whether or not it has “auto-changeover”.
Thermostats have two options when switching from heat to cool or the reverse (cool to heat)— manual changeover or auto changeover. Changeover refers to the thermostat being switched from heat to cool as the air crosses a certain temperature. Auto changeover thermostats switch from heat to cool automatically while manual changeover thermostats must be changed by hand.
If you choose an auto-changeover thermostat to be installed with your new heating and cooling system, you can keep your home more comfortable, even when temperatures fluctuate especially like they do every Spring day here in El Paso.
