Surviving Georgia’s seasons requires complete control over your home’s interior temperatures. Thermostats should respond to your commands and ensure that you can enjoy a comfortable home free of extreme heat or cold. Our team at Trammell Heating and Air provides homeowners in and around Gwinnett County, GA, with expert thermostat services, including repairs and installation.
Signs You Need to Repair or Replace Your Thermostat
So how do you know when your thermostat needs professional attention? The most common signs that you need expert thermostat repairs or replacement include:
Higher Energy Bills
A failing or damaged thermostat can cause your HVAC system to run constantly, burning up energy and raising your utility bills.
Thermostat Not Responding
The inability to control your thermostat means that your home will experience higher or lower temperatures than you want, creating an uncomfortable indoor environment.
Your HVAC system relies on your thermostat to ensure that every room in your home has the same temperature, so warmer or cooler rooms could indicate a problem with your thermostat.
Common Thermostat Problems
Thermostats often experience the same issues, so knowing how to recognize them can make it easy for you to know when you need our thermostat experts from Trammell Heating and Air.
Thermostats that lose access to their power source or have a weak connection won’t function as they should and will, in many cases, completely shut off.
Thermostats require regular maintenance that clears them of collected dirt, dust, and debris. Dirty thermostats won’t function as they should, sometimes not responding at all.
Loose wiring, screws, and other components may cause disconnects between different parts of your thermostat, causing it to malfunction.
When thermostats reach the age of 10 or so, they may need replacement or upgrading. Trying to keep an old thermostat working can result in multiple repair calls that cost more than a new thermostat in the end.
