There are many different kinds of thermostats out there. You can choose one that links up with your device so the temperature of your home can be controlled from anywhere. Some choose to stick with a traditional digital thermostat; while others have an older dial thermostat still installed in their home. Agape Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing is here to talk about thermostats and the fact that the problems you are facing with your AC may be a thermostat issue instead.
How to Tell if Your Thermostat is Not Working
When you are having temperature issues in your home, the first thing people start to think is that there is an issue with their heating and cooling systems. While this is definitely true much of the time, there is often a little device in your home that is often overlooked; your thermostat. This little device is responsible for telling your heating and cooling system when to cycle on. You could refer to the thermostat as the brain of the heating and cooling system. Much of the time, it takes the help of a professional HVAC technician to help you get to the bottom of the issues you are having. Some problems that end up being thermostat issues rather that system issues include:
– Uneven Cooling: If your thermostat has faulty circuits, it will cause your system to shut off before the cool air has been evenly distributed throughout your home. This will cause you to feel like there are hot spots in certain areas of the house.
– Short Cycling: If it feels like your AC is constantly turning on and off, it is a problem known as short cycling. This means that your system only turns on for a short time that is not a full cooling cycle, only to turn back on in just a short time. This will cause a spike in your heating and cooling bill as well as cause undo stress on the compressor.
– Blower Not Turning On: If your system is just not turning on at all, even when the thermostat is turned on and set at the right temperature. If there are wiring issues within your thermostat it can cause your system to not even turn on.
Importance of a Digital Thermostat
If you don’t have a digital thermostat in your home, you may want to make the switch. This doesn’t mean that you need a complicated thermostat to get the job done, but a digital thermostat will give you a much more accurate temperature in your home. You will be able to set the temperature to hone in on the perfect conditions for your home. Dial thermostats aren’t nearly as accurate and could be costing you more money on your energy bill each month.
