Your thermostat is the brain of your HVAC system, commanding all the other elements. If it’s not functioning, your Crystal River, Florida, home may suffer from a variety of issues. Look for these common indicators that something is wrong so you can schedule a repair quickly.
Thermostat Screen Won’t Light Up
If the screen on your thermostat doesn’t respond when you make adjustments, this is a clear indicator that something is wrong with this part of your system. If your thermostat is battery-operated, change the batteries to see if this solves the issue. If it still doesn’t work, it’s probably time for a replacement.
Your Home’s Temperature Is Wrong
Does your thermostat report a different temperature compared to what you’re getting with another thermometer? If the two readings don’t match, it probably needs to be calibrated properly. It’s important to use your other thermometer in the same location. If your home is suffering from hot and cold spots in other parts of the home, the issue is likely with the placement of your thermostat rather than the product itself. Moving it to another part of the home can help you get even temperatures throughout your living space.
Your HVAC System Doesn’t Cycle Properly
When the thermostat is malfunctioning, you may notice that:
- Your heater or AC system runs continuously.
- Your heater or air conditioner cycles on and off frequently.
- Your heating and cooling systems don’t turn on at all.
If your system isn’t cycling as it should, your thermostat may be sending it the wrong signals. These signs may also indicate other problems with your HVAC system, so it’s best to have our technicians diagnose the issue so you can get a quick, accurate repair.
