Discovering What’s Wrong with Your Thermostat
One of the most common HVAC repairs that our heating and air conditioner specialists deal with occurs when a thermostat in your home malfunctions. When this happens, it is usually the first sign that something is wrong with your HVAC system. If you find that your thermostat isn’t working correctly, there are some quick things that you can try before calling us.
Check Your Thermostat’s Batteries
Today, most homes have thermostats that are battery operated. Although these thermostats typically connect to your furnace and AC through a set of wires, these wire connections control your HVAC unit. Therefore, they don’t provide any power to the thermostat.
To see if you’re in need of new batteries, remove the front part of your thermostat. If your thermostat doesn’t open in this way, you may need to consult your user manual for directions. Once you’ve opened your thermostat, you merely need to change the batteries.
Do You Have A Brown-Out?
Although this isn’t a standard issue, brown-outs can still affect your home’s thermostat. When something impedes or bottle-necks your home’s power, a brown-out can happen. This situation can prevent your heating and cooling system from working right. You’ll need to check for an overall power issue in your home.
Check Your Thermostat’s Mode
Since we live in a climate that experiences all four seasons, there are many times when multiple people in your home are unaware that someone else has changed the settings on your thermostat Honeywell. Homes that don’t use programmable thermostats need to watch out for this type of situation. For instance, someone may have changed your thermostat to “cool” during the winter months without anybody else knowing about it. This change of setting may cause you to think that your furnace isn’t working correctly. Make sure you look at your thermostat wifi’s setting before calling an HVAC technician to save a lot of time and hassle.
See If Your System is “On”
While this may sound like common sense, it’s quite common to overlook the fact that your thermostat may be off. Many homeowners don’t realize that their thermostat is off especially if the thermostat displays information like the time and outside temperature. This reason is why you should have a checklist that you go through every time you change your heating and A/C settings.
Some HVAC systems have a fan-only mode. When you use this setting, it is the only working component of your HVAC system. It can sound like your system is on even though it’s only blowing hot or cold air, depending on what time of year it is. Instead of setting your unit to the “fan-only” mode, set it to “auto” instead.
Room Temperature And Setting Don’t Match
Sometimes, the inside of a thermostat can become dirty and dusty. When you don’t clean it, you’ll receive inaccurate readings from your thermometer. This erroneous reading will make you think that the temperature in the room isn’t changing.
