Thermostats are typically reliable devices, but occasionally they can run into problems. The thermostat controls the heating and the cooling for homes with central heat and air conditioning. The thermostat detects the temperature of the room and compares it to the desired temperature setting. If the room is too warm or too cold, the thermostat requests heat or air depending on the season.

Is Your Thermostat Broken?

Set the thermostat at least 5 degrees higher or lower than your normal setting, depending on the season. Set it 5 degrees higher than normal during heating season, and 5 degrees lower during cooling season. Check that the appropriate device comes on.
Check that the thermostat is correctly set to “Heat” or “Cool.” Check that the main circuit breaker for the furnace or air conditioner is in the “On” position.
Turn off the power for the furnace and air conditioning systems by switching the appropriate circuit breaker to the “Off” position.
They typically come off with gentle prying by hand.
Make sure each is attached firmly to its respective mounting screw. If none of these steps work, contact one of our Meyer Air specialists to come out and diagnose and fix your broken thermostat ASAP!
Meyer Air also offers installation and set-up for programmable thermostats! Never worry about setting the temperature before you go to bed, or when you leave the house. A programmable thermostat offers a set schedule that adjusts your house’s temperature based on what time and temperature you tell it. This can reduce unnecessary cooling, such as when you are away at work, and can potentially save you hundreds of dollars. Call Meyer Air today and we can install and entirely set up a programmable thermostat in your home.
