Troubleshooting the Thermostat

Your home is a place where you want to stay comfortable whether it’s hot or cold outside. One of the ways that you can make sure your home is as comfortable as possible is by keeping the thermostat at one temperature. You can adjust it slightly through the year as the seasons change, but try to keep it as constant as possible. This can help save money on your electric bill, especially if the heat or air isn’t turning off and on at all times. 

If you suspect that there are problems with the thermostat, there are some ways that you can check it before calling a company to come to the home. One of the common problems that you might see with a thermostat is when it won’t turn on or off. A fuse might be blown, or there might be something with the switch that won’t let the unit come on like normal. Check all of the wires to make sure there isn’t anything that is loose. Dust can build on the unit, making it not operate properly. Change the filters frequently to ensure that there is a proper airflow in the system. If you can’t determine what is wrong with the unit, then consider changing the thermostat. Click here for other ideas on common issues.
