HVAC Accessories and Thermostats
Thermostats come in hundreds of varieties and brands, so how do you know if you’re choosing the right product? The simple answer is that it all depends on your desired features and what you want out of your home’s heating or cooling system. Many new thermostats require additional wiring or configuration while other systems require more advanced digital communications. Usually, wired thermostats run on a 24-volt display with some type of interface control, so that you can actually adjust the indoor temperature.
As one of Atlanta’s most trusted air conditioning service teams, Empire Heating and Air Conditioning is committed to installing only the best thermostats in your home or office. The list below includes our most popular units:

Is thermostat installation a do-it-yourself job or something that should be left up to professionals? This is a common question among homeowners, but we almost always recommend professional installation. For the mechanically or electrically-inclined, replacing a thermostat is a simple task, but for those with little wiring experience, there is the potential to do more harm than good.
If your thermostat requires additional wiring or advanced configuration, it’s usually best to leave it to the professionals. Purchasing and installing a thermostat with Empire HVAC guarantees the job is done right – and we even extend a full five-year warranty on all of our thermostat devices!
