4 Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Thermostat

July 17, 2019

There are many items around the house that you don’t think about until something goes wrong with them. The thermostat is an example of something small that’s very important to your heating and cooling systems. Thermostats can sometimes start to wear down over time.

Here are four signs that you may need a new thermostat.

1. Your Thermostat Is Unresponsive

Thermostats have been known to simply stop working. This means no lights, no changes when you push buttons, and no effect on your unit when you turn the dial.

2. Your Heater and/or Air Conditioner Won’t Turn On

If your systems aren’t kicking on, it could be a defect related to your thermostat. If the wiring isn’t quite right, the signals can’t be sent properly from your thermostat to your heater or air conditioner.

3. Your Systems Are Constantly Running

Likewise, if you can’t stop your heater or AC from running, the thermostat may be the culprit. It could be either that something is miscalibrated or that the wiring is faulty.

4. The Actual Temperature and Your Thermostat Settings Don’t Line Up

If you’re setting the temperature to 72 degrees but it’s actually never 72 in your home, there’s an issue that you need to uncover.

In any of these cases, you’ll want to do a quick check of your thermostat before calling in a professional for a repair. At Postma Heating & Cooling Inc, we’ve seen all types of situations in Chatham and the surrounding communities. There have been instances in which the settings have been set to “ON” or “HEAT” when the customer has wanted it to be on “AUTO” and “COOL,” and vice versa.
