Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Thermostat
Your HVAC thermostat is the boss of your heating and cooling system. If it has issues, the entire operation crumbles. The cost of a new thermostat in Greater Atlanta starts at about $20 and goes up from there. Although thermostat replacement can be inconvenient, a new toy is always fun. Here are some red flags that your thermostat can no longer be trusted.
Thermostat Is Unresponsive
When you try to change the settings, the thermostat ignores you. The device might lie about indoor temperatures and refuse to turn on or off. It might display only a blank screen. If the batteries are fine and the breaker isn’t tripped, the device is probably approaching its end of days. If your thermostat seems apathetic, it’s time to install a new one.
You Have HVAC Performance Issues
Erratic HVAC performance can occur when the thermostat is no longer in control of how your HVAC system behaves. The thermostat tells your HVAC what to do. When the HVAC system ignores thermostat directives, it’s a clear sign of a bad connection. Replace a rogue thermostat as soon as possible.
The Device Gives You Inaccurate Information
The thermostat collects indoor temperature data from sensors. It then adjusts the heating and cooling output accordingly. Older thermostats can misread the sensors and report inaccuracies. Electrical connections in the unit can deteriorate over time. If that happens, thermostat replacement is in order.
Energy Costs Are Exploding
Thermostat issues can wreak havoc on your bill. When an HVAC system responds to inaccurate information, energy bills go up. Unreliable temperature readings cause your HVAC to overwork. The more it overworks, the more energy it uses. The only sane solution is thermostat replacement.
