Common Thermostat Issues

Inconsistent Thermostat Reading and Room Temperature

Sometimes, a thermostat can read a temperature that is not consistent with the actual room temperature. Here’s what you can do. Before calling an HVAC specialist, you need to check whether the thermostat can keep the room at the correct temperature or not.  Confirm that the thermostat is clean and level, then get a small thermometer and tape it on the wall next to the thermostat. To avoid heat or cold transfer from the wall, place a paper towel behind the thermometer. Fifteen minutes should be enough to check if the temperature is stabilized and has a correct reading. Then, compare it with your thermostat’s reading. If the numbers are more than a degree apart, your thermostat is likely inaccurate. This will help the AC technician identify the problem more quickly.

The Thermostat Turns the AC On and Off Frequently

The thermostat must sit level and stay clean because dirt and improper placement can trigger the short non-stop operation can greatly affect your AC’s energy efficiency.

Also, a poorly calibrated anticipator can also make your system turn itself on and off intermittently. To lengthen the cooling cycle, try moving the anticipator arm in single notch increments on the thermostat’s dial. If you’re not comfortable doing this, you can call your local AC professional to do it for you.

A Malfunctioning HVAC System

Your thermostat can cause your AC or furnace to not work at all. So, if the thermostat’s display is not lit, it cannot tell the HVAC system to turn on. Simple reasons can cause your thermostat to not get power, including dead batteries, a tripped circuit breaker, or a blown fuse in your electrical panel. If the thermostat is receiving power, turn off the thermostat breaker and check its interior components. If you notice a buildup of dust, dirt, or soot, clean them carefully because a coating of debris on those mechanical parts can affect the thermostat’s normal operation. Use a can of compressed air or a soft brush to clean the thermostat’s internal parts. If you find this task quite challenging, call a qualified professional.

Should you want temperature control to be as effortless as possible, switch to the Lennox ComfortSense 3000 Thermostat.
