Signs That You Need Thermostat Repair

Unfortunately, your thermostat won’t be able to tell you when it needs to be repaired. However, by paying close attention to your system, you might be able to pick up on some common signs that you need thermostat repair.

Your Home Isn’t Reaching the Set Temperature

If your local Covington, KY home has been warmer or cooler than usual, but you haven’t adjusted the thermostat’s temperature much, it likely needs repairs. For example, if you always set your thermostat to 70°F, but lately it’s been feeling a little colder than that in your home, your thermostat might be incorrectly setting the temperature. It might say 70°F on the thermostat when it’s actually a couple of degrees cooler than that.

Having repairs performed on the system can help it actually reach the desired temperature far more consistently.

HVAC is Short Cycling

When a thermostat incorrectly reads the temperature, it can tell your heating system or air conditioner to turn on, even if it doesn’t need to. As it continues to read incorrect temperatures, it will continue to turn on when it doesn’t need to, and will often not finish these cycles. This results in poor heating and air conditioning throughout the home, as well as higher energy bills.

Signs That You Need Thermostat Replacement

Knowing when to replace or repair your thermostat can be a difficult task. After all, many of the symptoms between the two can be interchangeable. If you notice any of the signs below in your thermostat, it’s best to have a professional come look at your thermostat to determine the best course of action going forward.

Heating and Air Conditioning Systems Won’t Turn On

Heating and cooling systems apply the information shared by your thermostat to either heat or cool your home. However, if your HVAC systems aren’t turning on, even right after changing the temperature, your thermostat likely isn’t telling your systems to turn on. This can become a major issue, especially if it occurs during very hot or cold months. A professional should be called to inspect your unit and recommend a course of action.

Thermostat is Over 10 Years Old

Like every other appliance within your home, your thermostat won’t last forever. Typically, thermostats last for 10-15 years before they should be replaced. If your thermostat is over 10 years old and is experiencing any issues, the system should be replaced in order to fully prevent any issues from reoccurring.
