How to Fix a Broken Thermostat

Posted on: April 21, 2016

Without a thermostat it would be nearly impossible to keep our homes at a comfortable temperature. After all, they control the heating during the colder months and the air conditioning in the spring and summer so homeowners are relying on them just about all year ‘round. However, just like most pieces of technology, they can run into problems from time to time. So if yours is on the fritz, read below to find out how to fix it:

  1. Adjust the temperature setting. If you notice your air conditioning isn’t kicking on this season when the house seems to be on the warmer side, set the thermostat 5 degrees below the normal setting. This should make the cooling system kick on.
  2. Make sure it’s set to “cool”. Oftentimes, homeowners forget to switch the system over to air conditioning after a long winter of heating.
  3. Sometimes, the condenser unit needs to be reset. Check the owner’s manual for instructions or call on the experts at ABC.
  4. Check the batteries in the thermostat and/or make sure the wires are connected properly. Each wire should be attached securely to its respective mounting screw.
  5. Check the breaker to make sure the fuse that powers the equipment has not blown.

Still can’t seem to get your thermostat or cooling system to kick on? Don’t worry, ABC Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electric is here to help! Just give us a call to schedule an appointment and we’ll get you back up and running as quickly as possible.
