Common Signs of a Failing Thermostat

The thermostat is the first thing to check if you’re experiencing issues with your HVAC system. Your thermostat controls HVAC system operation and, if it breaks or isn’t working correctly, it can make it appear that something is wrong with the system itself. Replacing your thermostat is a quick repair, and Westhills Plumbing & Heating can help.

HVAC System Doesn’t Turn On

One of the most obvious signs that your thermostat isn’t working is that the HVAC system won’t turn on or respond to it. If you make any changes to your thermostat or turn on the system and get no response, your thermostat is likely in need of repair or replacement.

Thermostat Doesn’t Respond to Changes

If you make changes to your thermostat, it should respond immediately. If you get no response to the change or the system doesn’t respond after the changes are made, you likely need to replace your thermostat.

HVAC Short Cycles

Short cycling is when your HVAC turns off too early, thus failing to complete an entire cycle. The result is that the system is ineffective at keeping your indoor environment comfortable. This could be a sign that your thermostat needs replacing or repair but could also indicate a deeper issue with your system. In the case of short cycling, it’s essential that you call a furnace maintenance specialist to diagnose the problem correctly.

Thermostat Settings Not Working

With today’s programmable thermostats, keeping consistent settings over time is easy. However, if your thermostat keeps losing track of these settings, then it could indicate that it’s time to replace the thermostat. If you’re having issues with your thermostat, then it’s essential that you know whom to call. Replacing your thermostat is quickly done and something that Westhills Plumbing & Heating has experience with. So call us today to get your thermostat diagnosed!
