Quite often, a thermostat gives you some clues that it’s time for replacement. Find out what these clues are to know if it’s time to replace your thermostat!
One of the telltale signs that a thermostat is due for replacement is when adjusting the temperature lever produces no change in home temperature. Another sign is an unresponsive interface or unlit display light.
Changing the Batteries Did Not Help
Of course, the first response to an unresponsive thermostat may be to change the batteries. While this may sometimes fix the problem, you may not always be that lucky. If the thermostat is still unresponsive after changing the batteries, it may be too late for a quick fix or simple repair.
HVAC Runs Continually Or Not At All
This could be due to a wiring defect that causes the thermostat to lose its connection to the home’s heating and cooling system may be the issue. It could also be reading temperatures incorrectly and not turning heating or cooling on when needed. This same defect could also cause the HVAC to not start at all.
Different Temperatures Throughout
If you’ve noticed different temperatures throughout your home, this could be a sign it’s time to replace your thermostat. Shifts in temperature occur when a thermostat switches the HVAC system on and off when it is not supposed to, causing rooms that are furthest from the central unit not receiving an even distribution of the desired temperature for the home.
