Signs Your Thermostat is Bad
Your thermostat is the part of your heater and air conditioner that tells it when to cycle on and off to maintain a constant temperature. So, if your problems have to do with an incorrect temperature or the unit isn’t cycling, then it is likely your thermostat is bad.
The first thing to verify is that your thermostat is getting power. Older thermostats may be powered by a battery that can go dead from time to time. Replacing the battery should restore the service of your HVAC. If your thermostat isn’t battery-powered then you may have a wiring issue.
If your thermostat is reading the incorrect temperature, there are two reasons. Older, mechanical thermostats have to be level to read correctly and they must be free of dust. Using lightly compressed air to remove the dust and verifying that the thermostat is level may fix the problem.
Benefits of Smart Thermostat Installation
New thermostats and new industry standards are making thermostats more reliable. Most new thermostats that are being installed are digital. This does away with most of the quirks that are caused by mechanical thermostats. Often, an HVAC tech will run power to a new thermostat so you don’t have to deal with batteries as well.
When most people decide to update their thermostat, they opt for a wifi-enabled, smart thermostat. Smart thermostats are wireless and can be programmed to fit your schedule. Most of them can even be controlled remotely by apps. The main benefit of these smart thermostat features is energy savings. By programming or controlling your thermostat remotely, you can reduce the amount of time that your heater and air conditioner are operating in an unoccupied home.
Some smart thermostats even learn your habits and automatically control the temperature of your home to fit your schedule. This adds up to major cost savings, more than enough to cover the cost of the thermostat installation in Thibodaux.
