If a thermostat isn’t working properly, it is almost impossible to keep a home at a comfortable temperature. Here are three signs that your thermostat needs to be replaced.

1. Air Conditioner Won’t Turn On

It can be very expensive to replace an air conditioner. Just because it won’t turn on, it doesn’t mean that the whole thing needs to be replaced. Quite often, it is just time to replace your thermostat.

2. Air Conditioner Won’t Turn Off

You may notice that your air conditioner seems to run constantly. Even when it reaches the set temperature, it still doesn’t shut off. This is a sign that your thermostat is bad. By replacing it, your air conditioner will be able to work properly.

3. Thermostat Won’t Turn On

By glancing at your thermostat, you should be able to see the current temperature of your house. When the thermostat won’t turn on, you may need to have it replaced. If it receives power from batteries, you should first try to replace them. If that doesn’t help, then you know that your thermostat is bad.
