Most homeowners don’t think much about their thermostats until they have a significant problem. It’s wise to replace your HVAC’s thermostat even before it breaks down completely. People replace their thermostats for several reasons, like upgrading to a more modern unit and energy efficiency. However, for most people, the concern is how to know when to replace their thermostats. Read through for information about when to upgrade your thermostat.
Heater or Air Conditioner Is Constantly Running
A constantly running heating and cooling system is a sign of a faulty thermostat. It could be due to a faulty thermostat’s wiring. Bad wiring in the thermostat causes false readings of your home’s temperature and failure to communicate with the HVAC to turn it off. Unfortunately, you cannot repair the faulty wiring in your thermostat. You may require an HVAC technician to replace the thermostat.
Your Thermostat Doesn’t Turn On
Your thermostat’s batteries could be dead if the unit fails to turn on or shows a blank screen. You can solve the issue by changing the batteries. However, if that doesn’t solve the problem, it would be best to hire a technician for replacement.
You Want to Upgrade Your Thermostat
Your older thermostat could be functioning well, but you might not be able to program it. Older thermostats also don’t have options to operate through smartphones. They also don’t automatically change to patterns like the digital thermostats. Newer thermostats allow you to lower temperatures when you are not around and still maintain a comfortable home. Therefore, you’ll have to replace your thermostat with a new one to take advantage of the newer options that can help save money on heating and cooling costs.

It may be time to replace your programmable thermostat if it fails to remember your settings. Sometimes your thermostat’s memory fails to work. It’s essential to replace the thermostat to enable you to program it effectively.
