Your thermostat serves as the brain of your Buford, GA, home’s HVAC system. When you set your desired temperature, it tells the HVAC system when to turn on and off. However, if you notice any of the following warning signs, it’s probably time to consider installing a new thermostat in your home.
Hot and Cold Spots
The temperature that you set on your thermostat should be the temperature in every room of your home. Depending on the number of windows in your home and other factors, there may be a slight variance, but the temperature should be relatively consistent throughout your home. If you notice that some rooms are much hotter or colder than others, your thermostat might be to blame.
Cycling refers to the pattern at which your HVAC system turns on and off. If you notice that your system runs for longer periods than it used to, the thermostat isn’t telling it to turn off. If your HVAC system doesn’t turn on when it’s supposed to, there’s an issue that needs to be looked at by an HVAC technician.
Increase in Utility Bills
During the summer, it isn’t unusual for your monthly utility bills to increase slightly. However, if you notice a major increase in your monthly electric bill, the problem may stem from your HVAC system. If the thermostat struggles to provide accurate information to your system, your bills might reflect the issue.
