      What You Need to Know About Thermostat Placement

      The thermostat serves as the ‘user interface’ of your HVAC system. It works to monitor the temperature inside your home, ensuring your most-used areas maintain optimal thermal comfort. However, the thermostat works more efficiently when it’s placed in the right spot. A trusted air conditioner repair company in the area, Superior Air, shares more of what you need to know here. 

      Why Does Thermostat Placement Matter?

      A thermostat’s job is to sense and monitor the temperature in your home, then signal your HVAC system to direct more or less heated or cooled air to it. For this reason, the thermostat should be mounted in a spot where its sensor can accurately determine a given room’s temperature. Otherwise, you’ll be getting suboptimal comfort. In addition, incorrect readings can lead to higher energy bills. To ensure your thermostat does its job effectively, make sure to AVOID placing the device in these areas:

      • Near windows and doors. Your thermostat may get false readings if it’s placed near skylights, windows or doors, where it can be exposed to direct sunlight. Because it will sense that the room is warmer than it should be, it then switch on your air conditioner when it’s not actually needed. An expert in air conditioning installation like Superior Air will recommend placing the thermostat near the center of your home or in rooms you use often.

      • Over the air vents. Placing the thermostat above the air vents will also affect its accuracy. If the warm air coming out the vents hits the device, it will read this room as “warm”. But if the air is cold, the thermostat will cool down before your home does. Both cases will result in unnecessary energy consumption.
