Is It Time to Upgrade My Thermostat?

A thermostat plays an important role in keeping your home cool during the summer and warm during the winter months. However, a thermostat can eventually experience problems over time due to its age. Replacing your thermostat can improve your energy efficiency while also making it much easier for you to control your home’s temperature.

Here are a few of the most common signs that it’s time to upgrade your home’s thermostats.

Inaccurate Temperature

Trying to keep your home feeling comfortable is never an easy task if your thermostat constantly displays the wrong temperature. An inaccurate thermostat will cause your system to run longer than usual and significantly raise your utility bill. Upgrading your thermostat will help you avoid this problem while also saving you money each month.

Your System Runs Non-Stop

Another sign that it’s time to upgrade your thermostat is if your system is constantly operating. Over time, this can cause excessive wear and tear on your system while also increasing your energy bill. Reaching out to an HVAC company is always a good idea to investigate the problem, as replacing your thermostat can help your system operate normally again.

Blank Thermostat Screen

A blank thermostat screen can happen due to a blown fuse, dead batteries, or a tripped circuit breaker. However, your screen can also malfunction due to age or defective parts. You will need to consider making an upgrade if you are unable to troubleshoot your thermostat.

Outdated Thermostat

A thermostat that’s older than your AC system can always cause a variety of problems. However, upgrading your thermostat is a great way to optimize your energy efficiency, as many thermostats allow you to create a pre-set schedule by using an app on your smartphone. Over time, this can result in significant energy savings while also reducing your system’s overall workload.
