When Should I Replace My Thermostat?

Monday, March 21st, 2016

Your thermostat is the brain of your HVAC system, regulating the temperature inside a single room or your entire living space. It works by sensing the ambient temperature and sending an electrical signal to your air conditioning system, furnace, or both, causing it to cycle. Thermostats are fairly reliable devices, but they occasionally run into problems just like any other component of your system. But how do you know when it’s time to replace your thermostat?

How Your Thermostat Affects Your Air Conditioning

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

Here in West Palm Beach, FL, air conditioning season starts early. Almost as soon as we’ve shut down our heaters at the end of winter, the temperatures rise and it’s time to turn on the AC again. A number of different factors can impact your air conditioner, including your thermostat, which lets you control when the AC turns on and off. Here’s how your thermostat affects you air conditioning in West Palm Beach.

Problems with the thermostat tend to result in one of three different outcomes. Either your air conditioner doesn’t turn on when you need it to, it shuts off before it has adequately cooled the air, or it refuses to shut off when it should. If the thermostat is to blame, it could be suffering from a number of possible issues. For example, it may be misreading the temperature, causing it to turn on and off when it shouldn’t. Or its trigger switch may be malfunctioning, meaning that it can’t activate the air conditioner when it should. Circuitry shorts can cause it to simply shut off, or to turn the air conditioner on and off at random times.

Those issues involve something wrong with the thermostat unit itself. In some cases, however, the unit itself may be functioning properly. It just hasn’t been placed in an area that accurately reflects the temperature. Drafts, cold spots and similar quirks in your home can wreak havoc with a misplaced thermostat and render your air conditioning system all but useless in the bargain.

An air conditioning expert can usually fix the problem for you. In the simplest cases, he or she can simply replace a malfunctioning thermostat, though it may be possible to repair an existing unit depending upon the circumstances. A service technician can also reposition your thermostat to a spot in the home that more accurately reflects the temperature.
