Your thermostat controls the heating and cooling of your home by comparing the ambient temperature of the room to the desired setting, which is one of the most crucial components of your HVAC system. Your thermostat will make an adjustment if the air in the house is too warm or too cool.

While thermostats are generally reliable, problems can arise if your HVAC system isn’t properly maintained. Here are some tips for detecting problems with your home’s thermostat from the heating services experts at Del-Air.

Adjust Heat

Heater not working properly? The problem may not be with your HVAC system but your thermostat. To test that your thermostat is functioning properly, try setting your room’s temperature 5 degrees higher or lower than usual. If the heater or AC doesn’t kick on right away, then you may be dealing with a faulty thermostat. Many thermostats also make a clicking noise when adjusted, so listen to see if the thermostat is indeed transmitting signals to the furnace.

Check Setting

Another way to check that your thermostat is working properly is to assess the settings. Along with ensuring that the thermostat is properly set to heat or AC, you should check that the ON switch has been flipped. Additionally, homeowners should ensure that there are no programming overrides that could be affecting their system’s performance.

Time to purchase a new thermostat for your home? You may want to consider one of the newer automatic systems. Programmable thermostats let you set the temperature in your home to various prescribed levels throughout the day and night with different options for weekdays and weekends. As a result, these devices often pay for themselves in utility-bill savings throughout the year.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
