Do You Need a New Thermostat? May 15, 2019

Do You Need a New Thermostat?, Concord, North Carolina

Compared to your powerful air conditioning unit, you might think of your thermostat as a mere accessory to the residential HVAC system. However, this component plays an integral role, acting as the messenger between you and your cooling equipment. If something goes wrong with your thermostat, your air conditioning unit might not be able to meet your needs. Use the following list to find out if you need to replace this essential part.

3 Signs You Need a New Thermostat

1. It Loses Programmed Settings

Smart thermostats let homeowners customize their heating and cooling settings throughout the day, so they can maximize both comfort and energy-efficiency. Therefore, you might have programmed the temperature to raise or lower several degrees when the house is empty, and return to optimal settings once you return home from work. If your thermostat consistently loses these instructions, even after repairs, it might be time for a new one.

2. Your Unit Won’t Power On

residential hvacDuring transitionary seasons like fall and spring, you may have to power your residential HVAC system on and off, or even switch between heating and cooling modes as necessary. If you're pressing the buttons or touchscreen on your thermostat but not hearing or feeling the unit power on, your unit might not be the problem. In some cases, the thermostat might be unable to send your request to the system.

3. It Doesn’t Control the HVAC System

Even if your thermostat allows the system to power on, it could force the system to turn off before reaching your desired temperature, or fail to carry out changes in temperature. A properly operating thermostat will make a small “click” when you alter the settings, then immediately command the unit to make those changes. If this isn’t happening, or your home never seems to reach a comfortable temperature, call a residential HVAC technician for a repair or replacement.
