On average, a thermostat lasts 10 years. When it begins to malfunction, you may experience problems like short cycling and inadequate warming or cooling of the home. The heater or AC might not even turn on at all if the thermostat is broken. Other signs your thermostat needs replaced are when it stops making clicking sounds and when it loses your programmed settings.
No Clicking Sounds
If your thermostat normally makes small clicking sounds when the heating or cooling system turns on, you know something is up if it no longer clicks. This is one of the sure signs that you need a new thermostat. Quick Comfort has high-quality thermostats available in Lincoln, IL and surrounding areas.
Short cycling is when your heating or cooling system stops running too quickly and doesn’t complete full cycles. This problem often causes it to feel too cold or too hot inside your home. Other issues may be behind short cycling, so you’ll need a dependable company to check your thermostat and inspect the system.
The Heating or Cooling System Doesn’t Turn On
A bad thermostat is sometimes the reason a heating or cooling system isn’t turning on. Just as with short cycling, you’ll need a qualified repair company to diagnose the cause. Quick Comfort provides free estimates and free second opinions in the Lincoln area. We have NATE-certified technicians you can trust for an accurate diagnosis of your heating or cooling system.
Programmed Settings Don’t Stick
When you program settings on a programmable thermostat, they should last for a long time. If you’re losing your programmed settings often, then you may need a new thermostat. It’s possible the batteries just need replaced, so we recommend trying that first before getting a new thermostat.
