Should I Upgrade My Thermostat?

April 19, 2021

A significant number of homeowners in the Cave Creek area have HVAC systems. Given the role that the equipment plays in keeping you comfortable throughout the year, it’s easy to see why a faulty system would be stressful. For the HVAC system to function efficiently, all its components should be in good condition. It’s essential to upgrade your thermostat as soon as it becomes faulty or notice any of these signs.

Suspiciously High Energy Bills

Most people are always searching for ways to lower their energy bills. Unfortunately, the inefficient HVAC equipment can counteract your goal of reducing energy bills in your home. Therefore, it’s time to replace your thermostat if you have noticed a suspiciously high energy bill. Usually, your thermostat could be the problem because it could be causing the HVAC to overwork.

A Damaged Thermostat

It’s essential to replace your thermostat immediately when it becomes damaged. Several things can damage a thermostat, such as high humidity, fire and smoke, and floodwaters. Rodents can also chew wires, causing electrical shorts in a thermostat. Faulty thermostats cause severe issues with your HVAC system or home’s wiring. Therefore, talk to an expert for a professional thermostat replacement.

Constant Temperature Shifts

Faulty thermostats are unable to maintain temperature settings. Therefore, it may be time to hire an HVAC technician for thermostat replacement if temperature settings continuously change without warning. If the settings keep shifting even after lowering thermostat settings, call a technician for replacement.

The HVAC System Short Cycles

Short-cycling is a significant reason for replacing your thermostat. The issue arises when the heating and cooling system fails to complete the heating or cooling cycle because it has shut off earlier than usual. It’s probably time to hire a technician to replace your thermostat if this happens often.
