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 the 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 of 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.

In that appointment, Raymond showed us areas in our air units that needed addressing. He took his time and made sure he made a thorough inspection of all the equipment. And what a nice gentleman.

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…
