Your thermostat plays a crucial role in maintaining the comfort of your Savannah, GA home by regulating its temperature. Like all devices, it will eventually need replacement, though. Here are signs that you may need a new thermostat or system repair.
1. The Thermostat Keeps Switching On and Off
If you notice that your thermostat is frequently turning your heating and cooling system on and off, it could indicate a problem with the device’s wiring or programming. Having a company service or replace it will help you avoid these issues and allow you to regulate the temperature properly.
2. The Temperature Reading Is Incorrect
If it is reading an incorrect temperature, it causes your HVAC system to turn on or off at the wrong times, wasting valuable energy and causing you to feel frustrated. This issue can occur due to a faulty sensor or wiring problems, and it’s best determined by a technician. Replacing the thermostat will give you temperature readings that you can count on.
3. The Thermostat Doesn’t Respond to Changes in Settings or Seems to be Off
On heat wave days, you rely on your thermostat to keep you cool. It can be devastating to see it isn’t doing its job during a heat wave.
Sometimes, the issue can be as trivial as dead batteries. In other cases, the thermostat may not register because the condensate line is clogged, the float switch has been tripped and the system turns off. It’s a fairly easy task to clear the condensate line with a shop vac, however, feel free to contact us instead.
