Smart Thermostat Troubleshooting Tips


Programmable thermostats and smart systems are great ways to save money
on cooling your home with your
Tampa air conditioning. After all, smart thermostats maintain temperature settings within two
degrees while offering an array of additional benefits, including different
scheduling models, air filter change indicators, and voice and phone programming.
Of course, the advantages of smart thermostats don’t apply if the
system chooses not to cooperate.

A leader in
Tampa air conditioning services, Del-Air provides a wide range of services to help families stay comfortable
throughout the year. Here are just a few of the issues that could be responsible
for your programmable thermostat’s operating problems:

  • Dead Batteries: Start with the simplest problem, which is to check your thermostat’s
    batteries. After all, replacing the batteries is something you can do
    on your own, without the aid of a technician. With any luck, a new set
    of batteries will have your smart thermostat working at top capacity once again.
  • Blown Fuse: If your batteries are still good, the problem may be with your thermostat’s
    fuse. Since fuses control the flow of electricity to the thermostat, a
    blown one can prevent the thermostat from turning the system on and affect
    your capacity to regulate temperature in your home. If you think your
    thermostat issues may be electrical in nature, bring your fuse to the
    hardware store to find an appropriate replacement.
  • Total System Failure: Unfortunately, in some cases, it may be necessary to replace the entire
    thermostat rather than a couple components. If your programmable thermostat
    is relatively new, you may be able to call the manufacturer for a replacement.
    If you think your smart thermostat is acting up, don’t wait to purchase
    a replacement. After all, a thermostat that isn’t reading the temperature
    accurately can cause the entire AC system to work harder, driving up energy bills.
