Avoid Heat Sources And Provide Good Ventilation
Selecting the right location for thermostat ventilation in a home or business for an air conditioning thermostat can actually play a crucial part in how efficient the unit runs and your comfort. Thermostats that are installed near heat sources such as windows and kitchens (ovens) can actually make the unit run longer than normal due to higher temperatures in the proximity. This will cause other rooms in the house to become cooler than expected. The exact opposite holds true for thermostats that are installed near cool spots such as air conditioning registers. If cool air from an AC register is circulating near the thermostat, this will cause other rooms in the house to feel warmer than expected. Finding a balance in your home or business for proper regulation can be trivial. Read below for more information.
Ideal Thermostat Placement
The best place for your thermostat is on an interior wall, away from direct sunlight, air vents, your kitchen, hallways, windows and doors. Ideally, it should be placed toward the center of your home. You should also take into consideration which rooms you and your family members use most frequently. That way, you’ll be certain the rooms in which you spend the most time are the most comfortable.
