If you’re trying to control the temperature of your home and your furnace or air conditioning system isn’t responding or acting strangely, the answer might not be with the units of your HVAC system. Your thermostat is incredibly important in properly functioning heating and cooling, and a broken or malfunctioning thermostat can lead to issues including:
- Furnace not putting out heat
- Air conditioner not cooling the home
- Furnace overheating or refusing to shut off
- Air conditioner refusing to shut off
- The furnace blower or fan still running with the thermostat off
Do Home Thermostats Go Bad?
Believe it or not, home thermostats can still go bad. With years in operation, the parts of these units can degrade over time and begin to malfunction. This can cause problems with your heating or cooling, and if misdiagnosed, could force you to buy a new air conditioning unit or furnace, even if you don’t need it.
Your thermostat detects your room temperature and automatically sends signals to your air conditioner or furnace to provide the right amount of heating or cooling. From parts breaking down or excessive age, if this stops working then you can find yourself in trouble and needing to call experts for repair or replacement.
