A thermostat is integral in keeping your home’s climate comfortable and safe, so it should remain functional to achieve the right temperatures. It’s important to know when to replace the control in your St. Cloud, FL, home. The following are some of the signs that you need a new thermostat.
Your Thermostat Is Unresponsive
Thermostats can stop working due to old age or a fault in the wiring system. That means that there’ll be neither lights nor changes after pushing buttons. In that case, you need to replace the faulty control with a functional device.
Your Systems Are Constantly Running
If you cannot stop your air conditioning unit from running, the control could be the culprit. It could be faulty wiring. It’s best to replace your control to stop your HVAC from constantly running.
Different Temperatures in Each Room
If you notice different temperatures in your house, the thermostat, which acts as the control center, could be faulty. It happens when the control sends incorrect signals to your unit, so it turns off or on when it shouldn’t. If changing control batteries doesn’t help, consider calling a professional for a control replacement.
Your Thermostat Is Obsolete
You don’t have to wait for your control to break down to warrant a replacement. If it’s a manual control, you could benefit from an upgrade to a new, digital thermostat. Consider replacing an obsolete control with a programmable one to additional features and lower monthly utility bills.
Thermostat Loses Programmed Settings
A programmable control should maintain temperature settings over a long time. However, if your home’s control doesn’t maintain the settings for a long duration, it could be time for thermostat replacement. A control replacement will help maintain programmed settings and keep your home comfortable.
It’s advisable to replace your control as soon as you start noticing any of these signs. Talking to an HVAC technician helps you choose the right thermostat for your home needs.
