A thermostat is a vital component of an air conditioning system. You won’t be able to adjust the temperature or turn the unit on if the thermostat isn’t working. And the thermostat can fail for a variety of reasons, such as the following:
Some thermostats draw power from your HVAC or electrical system, while others use batteries. When the batteries are running low, battery-powered thermostats usually flashes a low battery icon on the screen.
Other thermostats screens, however, just go blank. So if your thermostat isn’t working, there may be a problem with the power source. Try replacing the batteries with a new one. For thermostats that draw power from the main electrical system, a tripped breaker could be the culprit.
In this case, it’s better to hire a professional A/C repair tech in Henderson, TX to assess and fix the problem.
Is there a problem with how your thermostat operates? Does the device maintain a temperature of 73 degrees Fahrenheit even if it’s set for 70 degrees? If yes, your thermostat may be filled with dirt. Yes, dirt and dust can accumulate in your thermostat after years of use.
Depending on the thermostat type, dirt and dust can build up on the double-metal spin arm or in the vents. If it’s in the vents, the thermostat’s ability to detect temperature will be affected. If the dirt build-up is on the double-metal spin arm, the thermostat’s reactivity to temperature adjustments will be affected.
The thermostat reads the air temperature in its surrounding area and then compares it to the set temperature. When the temperature doesn’t match, the device sends a signal to your cooling system to adjust the temperature accordingly.
If the thermostat is placed in areas with significant temperature fluctuations, its ability to read the temperature will be affected.
Generally, a thermostat should not be placed in direct sunlight, near a window or door, above the air vents, or near heat-producing appliances. Placing them in these areas will likely result in temperature misreadings.
Thermostats aren’t made to last forever. So if it isn’t working, it’s also possible that it’s already broken and you already need a brand new one. If this is the case, the good thing is that there are great thermostat options in the market today. It’s also an opportunity to update your thermostat.
