3 Reasons Your Thermostat Isn’t Working, Bristol, Connecticut

As the control center of your home’s heating and cooling system, when your thermostat is out of commission, you have very little command over the temperature in your home. Fortunately, the team of boiler and furnace repair professionals at James J. Rybczyk Plumbing, Heating, & Air Conditioning, of Bristol, CT, can effectively diagnose issues with your thermostat and offer solutions. The following are a few common problems that can impact your thermostat’s operation, which will allow you to get the assistance you need to make your home comfortable again.

A Boiler & Furnace Repair Tech Offers 3 Reasons Your Thermostat Is Broken

1. Dirt and Debris

Electrical currents must be able to move through your thermostat unimpeded for it to operate correctly. Dirt and debris can prevent this from occurring, especially if it’s been awhile since the unit has been cleaned. Remove the front panel and gently remove the dust that is present to see if that does the trick. For best results, try using compressed air (which can remove debris without impacting any of the inner components).

2. Age

boiler and furnace repairYour thermostat might simply be well past its prime. In this case, having your thermostat replaced by a boiler and furnace repair technician is recommended. An old and faulty thermostat will end up costing quite a bit of money over time, as it will require a greater energy output to operate at the same level. 

3. Loose Wires

When checking for issues with internal thermostat components, be sure to shut down the power first to prevent a shock. Once the power has been turned off, you can check the thermostat for defects like loose wires or screws. You also want to make sure components aren’t corroded, which can also cause issues during operation.
