A faulty thermostat is notorious for making you think you have a more serious issue with your AC, heat pump or furnace.

Here are the most common problems & solutions

Wrong Thermostat Setting

Have you set your thermostat correctly? Is it even on and set to the correct temperature? You would be surprised how many times we see this...

The Power Source Is Failing

Your furnace won’t work if the thermostat is dead. It's probably caused by dead batteries. Time to swap them out!

You Have a Dirty Thermostat

Dust and debris can easily make their way into your thermostat. Open it up and check. Use a vacuum and a light brush to remove dust and debris.

Thermostat Is Installed in the Wrong Location

If your thermostat is mounted in the wrong location, it may sense false information. Speak to an HVAC contractor and find the right position.

The Thermostat Isn’t Level

Not staying at temperature? It might be because your thermostat is not mounted level. Use a spirit level and get it flat.

You have a Bad Thermostat

Sometimes you just can’t fix a problem if the unit is bad and it fails to reach the desired temperature. Time for a thermostat replacement.

Replace Your Thermostat

If it's not working properly and dying of old age, it's time for a new one.  Join the 21st century with a smart thermostat!
