How to Determine if You Need a New Thermostat

Some HVAC issues can be resolved on your own, such as the cleaning and replacing of air filters. You’ll know that you need to change them if you notice that your indoor air quality feels a bit stuffy or is triggering allergies. But as for other issues such as a faulty thermostat, you may need to work with a licensed electrician to repair or replace it. Handyman Connection of Orange County has more insight.

How Your Thermostat Works

Your thermostat takes an accurate reading of your indoor ambient temperatures. It will use this reading to activate your HVAC system depending on the setting that you input.

Why You Should Periodically Replace Your Thermostat

A faulty thermostat doesn’t help ensure the efficiency and performance of HVAC systems. This is because it won’t be able to accurately detect the indoor temperatures as the unit continues to provide conditioned air. Your HVAC will only consume more energy than needed while barely keeping your indoors comfortable. This won’t just lead to higher energy bills but also more frequent repairs because of premature breakdowns. To avoid this, repair or replace your thermostat as soon as you notice it isn’t working properly.

When to Change Your Thermostat

You don’t always have to wait until your current thermostat becomes faulty beyond repair to replace it. Some homeowners tend to change their thermostats around the same time as when they replace their climate control systems. Others can also choose to upgrade their current thermostat while also keeping their current systems. After all, newer thermostats will have features that provide better ease of use while also making use of the latest technology to keep your system efficient. But if you’re not sure whether you need a replacement, you can always talk to your trusted technician!
