Of all the different ways you can upgrade your HVAC system in Portland, replacing your thermostat is one of the easiest and least expensive. In most cases, you can replace your thermostat without having to make any other adjustments to your HVAC system. If you’re switching from a manual thermostat to a programmable model, the upgrade will often quickly pay for itself in future energy savings.

Older thermostats are mechanical and rely on a glass tube filled with mercury to operate. Since glass can break and send mercury spilling into the room and into the air, you may want to upgrade your old devices to newer, digital models. Digital units more accurately hold room temperatures within a comfortable range.
