The thermostat in your Hobbs, NM, home is the only line of communication between you and your HVAC system. Without it, the HVAC system won’t know the temperature in your home and how much to heat or cool it. If you don’t want to be stuck with a malfunctioning heating and cooling system, heed these four warnings that you need a new HVAC thermostat:
Home Never Seems Warm or Cold Enough
If the temperature in any part of your house doesn’t seem to match what’s on the thermostat, it could be giving a bad reading. This could require calibration. It’s a better idea to replace it with a modern one, though.
If your thermostat is more than 10 years old, it’s could have issues coming right around the corner. It’s also out of date in terms of technology. There are several smart features on modern thermostats that you could be taking advantage of in your Hobbs, NM, home.
High Energy Bills
Hobbs, NM, summers can be hot, but there could be an issue with your thermostat if your cooling bills are much higher than usual. If the thermostat isn’t working properly, your air conditioner could be running when not needed. A new HVAC thermostat will remedy this issue.
Randomly Turning On and Off
If your thermostat is turning off on its own or the screen is giving a bad reading, you probably need a new one. A service technician may be able to fix this, but it’s a better idea to completely eliminate the issue with a replacement.
