Your thermostat is a vital part of your home’s heating and cooling. When it breaks or malfunctions, you could be stuck in a home that’s too cold in the winter or too hot in the summer.
It’s important to know the reasons you thermostat might malfunction, as well as the steps you should take to fix the problem.
Thermostat replacement is inevitable after several years of use.
Like any piece of equipment, thermostats break over time. If you have a low-quality thermostat, it’s life expectancy is even shorter.
In addition to general wear and tear there are other reasons your thermostat might stop working:
One of the newest and best options is a programmable thermostat, also known as a clock thermostat.
This type of thermostat can be set according to your preferences, and scheduling temperature changes according to your schedule.
This will allow the thermostat to automatically adjust the temperature when nobody is at home, and readjust when someone is scheduled to return.
Another new option is the Wi-Fi thermostat, which controls the heating and cooling levels in a home through advanced sensors.
This type of thermostat allows you to control the temperature of your home remotely, through a wireless internet connection. There are also energy saving mechanisms, to help you reduce your energy consumption and save money on your electric bills.
A broken thermostat can seriously compromise the temperatures in your home. During the hot summer months or the cold winter months, this can be dangerous for your family.
