Getting the most from your heating and cooling system is crucial if you want to keep your home comfortable. While it might seem minor, a well-regulated thermostat is essential for heating and cooling your Jackson, NJ residence efficiently. The following tips will help you determine when you need a new thermostat.
Lagging or No Response to Setting Changes
When you reset the temperature, you should hear a clicking noise, and your system should respond quickly. If your system fails to heat or cool after you change the setting, you might need us to install a replacement thermostat. Thermostats are one of the many components we check during a routine HVAC maintenance visit.
Skyrocketing Energy Bills
The price of oil, gas, and other common home heating fuels is higher than ever. Please review the usage statistics from your utility company to ensure you’re paying as little as possible for fuel. If you see a dramatic increase in use, your thermostat might need replacing to regulate your furnace or boiler properly.
Randomly Operating System
Your home heating and cooling should always be under your control. Consider replacing your thermostat if your heat randomly turns on in the winter or your air conditioner can’t stay on.
Variable Room Temperatures
If your room temperature fluctuates despite steady thermostat settings, it’s time to consider a new thermostat. One way to test if this is the culprit is to adjust your thermostat to a setting closer to the current room temperature. If it can’t keep up with the reduced demand, it might be time for a new thermostat.
Although a thermostat is such a small piece of equipment, it can greatly impact your home’s comfort. Getting the help you need for your system is crucial. Call us at Comfort Zone Home Services to repair your heating system or install a new thermostat.
