It can be frustrating if you’re having air conditioner or heater trouble. This is especially true when you don’t feel cool enough during summer or warm enough during winter. However, before you schedule a heating or air condition service call, it’s best to inspect your thermostat first. After all, it controls your home’s climate and determines when your heater or air conditioner should turn on and off.
There are many reasons why your thermostat may not function properly. Today, we explore the common causes of why your thermostat cannot reach the right temperature.
Thanks to advanced technology, many modern thermostats get updates and bug fixes through a Wi-Fi connection. If your thermostat has lost its Wi-Fi connection, however, it may glitch and fail to respond to remote commands. If you think your router is the cause, this can easily be fixed by turning it off for a minute and then powering it back on. If this doesn’t work, review the manufacturer’s directions in your user manual or online.
Take note that your thermostat reads the temperature of its immediate surroundings. For this reason, you need to install your thermostat in a location that isn’t exposed to extreme temperatures. If your thermostat is installed near an appliance that gives off a lot of heat, for instance, it might cause your AC to turn on and your heater to turn off.
Loss of Power
If you notice your thermostat’s screen has gone dark, it may have lost power. This prevents it from reaching the set temperature. In the event that your thermostat system and furnace are not getting enough power, you may need to call a technician for repairs.
