As the seasons come and go, your home battles a series of hot and cold demands. Whether you need to cool off or warm-up, we always find ourselves searching for comfort and finding the right setting for your thermostat. Unfortunately, as the years continue to pass, thermostats tend to become less reliable. Be sure to look for these pivotal signs that your thermostat might be on its last legs.
Unresponsive to settings
Your thermostat should instantly respond to the temperature setting of your choice. If you don’t hear a ticking sound or immediately feel a difference in your home’s environment, this could be a warning sign that your thermostat has become unresponsive to temperature settings.
When an HVAC system fails to complete a full heating and cooling cycle, it’s known as short-cycling. This type of malfunction will make your home feel especially intolerable.
Lack of power
One of the most obvious signs of failure is your thermostat not turning on. When a thermostat loses connection to its HVAC system, it usually means there is an issue with wiring.
If there are significantly varied temperatures throughout your home, your thermostat is definitely confused. This means that your HVAC system is distributing air unevenly and ineffectively.
With these four signs in mind, it’s important to check the status of your thermostat. As winter approaches, maintenance can’t be stressed enough.
