Common Air Conditioning Thermostat Problems

Jan 8 ,2015

Common AC Thermostat ProblemsWith the invention of the thermostat for our home HVAC systems, along came lower utility bills and more ‘control’ over how we heated (or cooled) our homes.
Given that our HVAC systems run throughout the year, any help in lowering those bills is always welcome.
With the advent of the new style fully programmable thermostats, that control (and cost saving) can be even greater.

Styles

From a basic little rotary wheel to something with more computing power than a 1990’s desktop computer, thermostats have come a long way over the years; able to ‘zone’ certain areas, come on at set times, with the ability to increase or decrease the set temperature dependent on ambient temperatures, they really are quite clever.

Problems

The older style thermostats are quite reliable, truth be told, there is very little inside them that can fail, but just like the best of us, age can take its toll! (as any HVAC technician who has spent a lifetime on their knees installing systems can tell you!).
The newer thermostats have been known to cause problems, but in our experience, this usually an operator error; the thermostats are getting so clever that they need a full instruction booklet on how to use them and then another on how to program them (maybe a slight exaggeration, but you get the idea).

Generally, it seems that you are more likely to have problems from a power outage than anything else; causing the HVAC system itself to reset, this in turn resets the thermostat.
