Your HVAC system relies on thermostats as a crucial component. They allow you to control and adjust your home’s temperature easily. However, if you experience a situation where your thermostat fails to activate, it may be a sign of a malfunction. Here are some telling signs your home’s thermostat is experiencing issues.
Your Thermostat Produces No Power
If your thermostat screen is blank and does not show your home’s temperature, it may not receive power. Usually, the screen should display the current room temperature and other information based on the type of thermostat you have. This may indicate that you need to replace the batteries in your thermostat or that there are more severe issues.
Your 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 operating 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 it.
Your Thermostat Displays The Incorrect Room Temperature
If your unit functions correctly, it will show the correct temperature inside your home. However, if the displayed temperature is accurate, your unit may be able to measure your home’s temperature correctly, indicating that it needs replacing.
Your Thermostat Is Unresponsive
When you change the temperature settings on your thermostat, your HVAC system should respond quickly. Usually, you’ll hear or feel air coming from the vents when the thermostat is turned on or adjusted. You might need to repair or replace the thermostat if you don’t notice an immediate response and can’t feel or hear anything.
