How Do I Know When My Smart Thermostat Isn’t Working Properly?

Smart thermostats are a fantastic addition to any home. You can automate your heating and cooling and even boost energy efficiency. But smart thermostats can malfunction from time to time. You can keep reading to learn more about the signs that something is wrong with your thermostat and it needs to be fixed.

Our team can visit your home for smart thermostat service in Campbell County, WY. No matter what the problem is with your thermostat, we can get down to the root cause and fix it so that your HVAC system can work at its best once again.

Changes in HVAC Operation

If you notice that your air conditioner or heater is turning on and off more frequently or staying on for extended periods of time, something may be wrong with your thermostat. It’s easy to think that a problem with operation resides inside of your HVAC system, but that isn’t always the case.

After all, it is your thermostat that reads the indoor air temperature and communicates with your HVAC system for when to turn on and off. If your thermostat is not reading the indoor air temperature correctly or is miscalibrated, it may signal for your air conditioner or heater to turn on and off at unusual times.

This is risky because changes in an operation can add a lot of strain to your HVAC system. If it is turning on and off frequently, that puts a lot of strain on the starter. If it is turning on and staying on for a long period of time, the working components may wear down faster.

Your HVAC system may experience more frequent repair needs or may have a shorter lifespan. If you suspect thermostat problems, it’s important to get them checked out because the service is an investment in your HVAC system’s efficiency and longevity.

On-Screen Messages and Errors

If your smart thermostat has an error code or a warning message on the screen, refer to the guide to find out what might be wrong. It’s possible that you can troubleshoot the thermostat yourself by following the instructions in the manual. But if that doesn’t work, you can give our team a call and we can get down to the root of the problem. 

Sometimes thermostats have low batteries that need to be changed out. It’s also possible for dust and dirt to get into the thermostat over the years and interfere with functionality. If your thermostat is malfunctioning, the solution may be as simple as brushing out the inside of the thermostat with a soft bristle brush. 

If that’s not the problem and your thermostat is miscalibrated, that is something our team can help with. When we recalibrate your thermostat, it is able to work with improved accuracy so that it communicates with your HVAC system to turn on and off at the appropriate times.
