Signs of a Bad HVAC Thermostat
Your thermostat is an integral part of your home. This small unobtrusive device controls both the heating and cooling of your home, helping to keep you comfortable year-round.
But have you been running into issues lately, either too warm or cold in your house? If you find yourself asking, “Is my thermostat bad?” there are a few steps you can take to find out.
If it seems as if your HVAC system isn’t performing properly to keep your home comfortable, it may simply be a bad thermostat. Here are a few tips on how to check if your thermostat needs repair or replacement.
- Inspect the thermostat switches – make sure they aren’t loose or broken. If there’s any play in the switches, you may need to replace your thermostat.
- Inspect internal mechanisms – remove the cover of your thermostat and make sure there’s no dust or debris in the interior. A can of compressed air can be used to remove dust.
- Replace the battery – a weak or depleted battery will affect the efficiency of your thermostat. Replacing the battery may alleviate the problem.
Once you’ve given your thermostat a thorough once-over, turn your system back on. If your system continues to experience issues, it’s time to call in a certified professional to thoroughly inspect your heating and cooling system’s thermostat and system to pinpoint the problem.
