Thermostats are one of the essential elements of your entire HVAC system. This tool is helpful because it aids in operating and adjusting the temperature in your residential property. If you go to turn on your thermostat and nothing happens, this can indicate something has gone wrong with your unit. Listed below are five signs that the thermostat in your home is broken.
Your Thermostat Produces No Power
An unresponsive screen that isn’t displaying your home’s temperature indicates that it’s not receiving power. It should always display the current room temperature and other details depending on the type of thermostat. However, your thermostat either needs new batteries or is experiencing significant issues.
Your Home’s HVAC Won’t Turn On/Off
Another common sign of a broken unit is that your home’s heating and cooling systems aren’t responding when trying to operate your thermostat. If your HVAC unit doesn’t turn on when you configure it or constantly remains on, it could be a standard wiring issue preventing you from using your HVAC unit.
Your Thermostat Displays The Incorrect Room Temperature
When your unit is operating correctly, it should display an accurate temperature of temperature inside your home. If yours displays the incorrect room temperature, it can’t accurately measure your home’s temperature and is another sign that it needs to be replaced.
Your Thermostat Is Unresponsive
When adjusting the temperature settings on your thermostat, your HVAC unit should respond almost immediately. When your thermostat is turned on or modified, you’ll most likely hear or feel air coming from the vents. However, if you don’t receive an instant response and can’t hear or feel anything, it may be time for the thermostat to be repaired or replaced.
