Normally, short-cycling problems occur when you’ve had your air conditioning contractor install the wrong size of air conditioner. However, if you’re certain that your HVAC units are correctly sized for your home and you’re still experiencing short-cycling, the second most common culprit is a malfunctioning thermostat. In fact, a lot of heating and cooling problems you experience can be fixed with a simple calibration. Of course, this isn’t always the case, but it doesn’t hurt to eliminate all possibilities before you’re neck-deep in repair and replacement bills.
Let our HVAC experts at Air Pro Inc. share with you the most common signs that indicate you’re in need of a brand-new thermostat.
Have you noticed changes in how your home feels even though you haven’t touched your thermostat? Does your home feel too cold or too warm despite the temperature shown on the device? Before you schedule an air conditioning repair service visit, you might want to take a look at your thermostat. Turn it off, then heck its battery levels and replace them if necessary. If this doesn’t resolve the issue, you may need a new thermostat soon.
The thermostat provides you with a convenient way to control your HVAC system. However, if your air conditioning or heating system isn’t responding to the settings you’ve entered into the device, this could be a sign of a faulty thermostat. Turn up the cooling (or heating) and check to see if your HVAC turns off or on. Call a professional right away if you’re unable to power down your system, or if it doesn’t power on at all.
Make sure that thermostat calibration is part of your routine AC and furnace repair and maintenance. Talk to your HVAC company about maintenance agreements that can help you keep your units in good condition for longer.
