Why Thermostat Placement Matters to the Performance and Efficiency of your Air Conditioner

5.0 Rating

small_6164960894Your thermostat plays the crucial role of reading your home’s temperatures and telling your air conditioner when to turn on and off. So if it’s located somewhere that’s affecting its temperature readings, your home could suffer from comfort and efficiency problems. So let’s take a look at why proper placement of your thermostat is so important and places to avoid installing one.

Why is proper thermostat placement important?

If the temperatures that your thermostat reads are not reflective of the average temperature in your home, your air conditioner will either operate too often or not often enough. In either case, it will be difficult to maintain the temperature levels that you want in your home.

Since thermostats are typically installed when your air conditioner is installed, improper placement might occur due to a poor system installation or a remodel to your home that changes the area surrounding your thermostat.

Where to avoid placing a thermostat
