Several things can impact the comfort level of your Hampstead, North Carolina, home, including issues with your thermostat. When your thermostat isn’t working, it’s nearly impossible to keep your home at the ideal temperature. As a result, you and your family will feel less comfortable. Here are a few of the ways thermostat problems can affect your comfort and some solutions:

Insufficient Cooling

Sometimes, a lack of cold air means that your air conditioner isn’t detecting the correct temperature in your home. There are a number of reasons that your thermostat might be reading the incorrect temperature. For instance, it’s possible that the temperature sensor in your thermostat has malfunctioned and needs recalibrating.

A thermostat that isn’t level might have trouble reading the correct temperature. The location of your thermostat may also be an issue. If your thermostat is in direct sunlight or near an air vent, you won’t get an accurate temperature reading. As a result, your system won’t work correctly.

Your Air Conditioner Won’t Turn On

If your air conditioner won’t turn on, it could be because the batteries in your thermostat have died. If your thermostat has a digital display, look for a low battery warning to tell if your batteries need replacing. Also, if the display is completely blank and non-responsive, the batteries may be completely dead.

Your Thermostat is Old

Older thermostats have trouble controlling the temperature in a home. Therefore, you should consider investing in a smart thermostat.

Smart thermostats offer a number of features that can boost your comfort, including the ability to program cooling schedules. They also offer remote connectivity so that you can control the temperature in your home while you’re away. The improved comfort your smart thermostat provides should be well worth the initial cost.
