Your Thermostat Might Need Repairs If…

Your HVAC equipment relies heavily on your thermostat to know how to make your home comfortable. It’s not uncommon to have your thermostat repaired if it’s experiencing issues like:

Your home Isn’t Reaching or Staying at the Set Temperature

If your heating or cooling system cannot maintain a set temperature level, your thermostat could be the problem. It could be an issue with the wiring of the thermostat or an issue with your thermostat communicating with your heating and cooling systems. 

Your HVAC Is Short Cycling

When the thermostat doesn’t adequately communicate the right temperature to the heating and cooling system, it can kick the system on even when it shouldn’t be running. This means the HVAC system turns on and off more than usual and may cause the cycle to be shorter than the regular 10 minutes.

You Might Need a New Thermostat If…

Thermostat replacement is a smart idea if you’ve noticed any of the following issues:

Your Thermostat Is Old or Outdated

Thermostats generally last about ten years and then begin to break down or become outdated over time. Some homeowners like to replace them sooner due to innovations on the market. If you’ve had your thermostat for ten years or more, it’s time to upgrade to a new, programmable thermostat, which can help you save on heating and cooling costs.

If your home has a manual or mechanical thermostat, you could be missing out on lots of energy savings. Switching to a programmable or smart thermostat is a great investment in your home’s comfort control and energy efficiency. 

Your Energy Bills Have Spiked

Maybe you set your thermostat to a specific temperature, but you’re getting the wrong temperature reading on your thermostat, or if your system sounds like it’s constantly running, it could lead to higher than average energy bills. Professional HVAC technicians will often look for many causes of suddenly rising energy bills, and malfunctioning thermostats are a common culprit. 

Controls Are Unresponsive

Your thermostat communicates directly with your HVAC system. If your temperature reading isn’t correct or your thermostat fails to respond to settings, or your display is not responding to your changes, you might want to consider a new thermostat. 

Uneven Heating in Your Home

Frequent temperature fluctuations may indicate that your thermostat isn’t working correctly due to a malfunctioning thermostat.
