    Signs Your Thermostat is Damaged

    A poorly operating thermostat can be a nuisance and prevent you from enjoying that ideal temperature. When your thermostat is acting oddly, there are several problems that can be at fault. In some cases, the problem can be as simple as the need to replace the batteries. At other times, it can indicate a mechanical malfunction in your furnace or heater.

    Regardless of what the cause is, homeowners should keep an eye on how their thermostat behaves. The thermostat regulates your entire HVAC system, and will typically tell you when there is a problem.
    Here are some common warning signs that your thermostat is damaged:

    • Uneven Home Temperatures – If you notice a temperature difference from room to room this could be the fault of your thermostat. It is generally caused by the thermostat turn the AC or heater on and off when it’s not supposed to.
    • Unresponsive – If your thermostat is unresponsive or won’t turn on at all, it could mean there is an issue with the thermostat itself. Thermostats typically don’t last as long as the heating or AC system itself and may need to be changed. Also, be sure to check the batteries as this could be the issue.
    • Heater/AC Doesn’t Turn On – If your thermostat is responding (it shows the temperature moving) yet the AC or heater does not come on, it could be due to faulty or loose wiring from the thermostat to the ignition system.
    • HVAC Won’t Turn Off – Similar to the situation above, if the system won’t turn off, it could also mean an issue with the wiring.

    Temperature control issues can always be a challenge, especially when the source isn’t easily identifiable. At Sunset Heating & Cooling, our experienced AC contractors can troubleshoot and repair your thermostat, getting your system back up and running as quickly as possible.

    Why Upgrade Your Thermostat?

    There are two different types of thermostats that are based on the type of heating system you have. Low voltage thermostats are used for oil and gas burning furnaces that have a vent system (forced hot air); though they can control virtually any heating system.

    A line voltage thermostat is wired with a higher voltage and is typically used for electric baseboard heating. Low voltage is more common and more popular as it takes less power to run. Within low or line voltage, there are three different types of thermostats; analog, digital/programmable, and smart thermostats.

    Analog thermostats are a traditional system where you physically turn the dial to the temperature you desire. Digital thermostats are equivalent to a digital clock. Analog and digital thermostats tend to be less popular, though, as smart thermostats have taken over.

    What many homeowners do not realize is that there is a difference between smart thermostats and wifi thermostats. Both systems are similar and have many of the same features, but the biggest difference is a smart thermostat will learn from your schedule and the way you adjust your temperature settings. It will start to anticipate when you adjust your temperature based on your schedule and will initiate the change on its own.

    Looking for additional upgrades for your home? We also offer ductless mini-split AC system installations, which can give you even more control over your home’s temperatures.

    Benefits of Installing a New Thermostat

    There are many advantages to replacing and installing new thermostats. Whether you choose to go for a traditional analog, a programmable unit, or a smart/wifi thermostat, some of the perks include:

    • Fewer repairs
    • Heating efficiency
    • It can extend the life of your HVAC system.
