Your HVAC system has to get prompts from your thermostat to heat or cool your home. A fully functional thermostat will cut off the heat supply when your room has attained the desired temperature. The following are signs you should install a new thermostat in your Brevard, NC home.
Your HVAC System Turns On and Off Unpredictably
The primary role of your thermostat is to notify your HVAC system to heat or cool your home, depending on the surrounding temperature. If the thermostat can’t sense the temperature changes, it will misinform the HVAC system, signaling it to switch on and off repeatedly.
The problem can be as minor as a frayed or faulty wire inside the thermostat. It can also be due to old age or mechanical issues. Get an expert HVAC repair specialist to assess the thermostat and replace it if need be.
The Temperature Fluctuates Greatly
A functional thermostat will maintain every temperature setting you key in. If your thermostat keeps changing its readings, it’s an indication of a mechanical fault. You need to call your AC specialist to diagnose the issue and recommend replacements if necessary.
The Thermostat Doesn’t Properly Adjust to Temperature Setting
Thermostats are very sensitive to changes in temperature settings. Whenever you key in a new temperature, the thermostat must detect the difference and signal the HVAC system. The HVAC will respond by raising or lowering your room temperature.
If your thermostat doesn’t detect changes in temperature settings, you should know right away that it has an underlying problem. While your technician can fix some such issues, they might suggest a replacement in other instances.
If your thermostat indicates any of these signs, it is in your best interest to have it checked by a professional. Contact our HVAC repair technicians at Mountain Air Mechanical Contractors for reliable thermostat repair and replacement services.
