Thermostat Installation, Repair, and Maintenance for Houston and Bryan–College Station
The thermostat is your HVAC system’s control center. If it’s not sending or receiving the right signals from your heating and cooling unit, you won’t be able to maintain a comfortable indoor environment.
If you are looking for thermostat replacement options or suspect a problem with your existing thermostat, contact the HVAC experts at Dailey Company for 24/7 support.
Choosing the Right Thermostat
Traditionally, thermostats were simple mechanical operations, with a bimetal strip, a mercury tube, and some wires. Today, programmable and smart thermostats are basically mini computers that provide more accurate temperature control and can be connected to WiFi for remote control (from any WiFi-connected device).
With a programmable thermostat, you can set your heating and cooling system to turn on at specific times of the day throughout the week. This can help you save money and increase comfort in your home, as long as you take the time to program a schedule — otherwise, it’s just a glorified mechanical thermostat.
There are many different programmable thermostat options available:
- 7 Day: Set a different schedule for each day of the week
- 5+2 Day: Set one schedule for the weekdays and another one for the weekend
- 5+1+1 Day: Set one schedule for the weekdays and another one for Saturday and Sunday
When you call Dailey Company to install, replace, or repair your thermostat, we’ll make sure you know exactly how to use the thermostat for maximum energy savings.
Higher-end smart thermostats provide even more options than your digital, programmable thermostat models. Smart thermostats, popularized by the Nest thermostat, monitor your thermostat settings and energy usage and adapt to your schedule automatically. That’s what makes them “smart” or “self-learning.”
Smart thermostats offer a variety of features, including:
- WiFi connection
- Self-learning capabilities
- Energy reporting
- Alerts for dirty air filters, needed repairs, and more
Choosing a programmable or smart thermostat may seem like an unnecessary expense, but as long as you use them properly, you can save a lot of money on your energy bill. Additionally, with WiFi-connected thermostats, you’ll be able to turn on the HVAC system before you return home or adjust the temperature while you are away if you forgot before you left. No matter where you are, whether on your couch or at the airport, with a WiFi connection, you can adjust the temperature of your house.
Our licensed and trained HVAC experts will guide you through all of your thermostat options and advise you on the thermostat most likely to fit your needs.

Professional Thermostat Installation Is Essential
Many people believe that installing thermostats is an easy DIY job, but in fact there are many things that could go wrong. If your thermostat is installed in the wrong area, it could receive “ghost readings” from sources of heat and cold, such as windows, drafts, appliances, lights, and more.
Additionally, if everything isn’t leveled, calibrated, and wired correctly, you could end up with a faulty control system, inaccurate temperature readings, or worse. Our licensed, insured, background-checked and drug-tested team of HVAC professionals can install and repair any thermostat, including multiple control panels and remote controls.
