As the hot, humid days of summer approach, you want to make certain your AC is ready to do some heavy lifting. One key to making sure your home is cool and comfortable is to ensure that your thermostat is working properly. This is usually the first thing that the professional crew at Atlas Butler will look at when they go out on a service call. Fortunately, thermostats are probably one of the least expensive components when it comes to HVAC repair. If you feel that your AC isn’t working as well as it should, then call us at 614-681-2167. We’ll send a technician out to check your thermostat and if that doesn’t solve the problem, we’ll delve more deeply into what’s going on.
Signs your thermostat isn’t working properly:
- The HVAC system won’t turn on.
- The temperature fluctuates between rooms. The temperature should be pretty consistent throughout the house.
- Short cycling. This is more common with furnaces, but can also occur with an AC. The unit will fire up like it’s trying to kick on, will run for a few minutes, then shut off.
- Adjusting the thermostat makes no difference.
- The AC runs non-stop.
If an Atlas Butler service technician determines that it’s your thermostat at fault, they will replace it. You might be interested in a smart thermostat that you can program to adjust the temperature during the day. It’s a great way to save money, especially during peak use season. We can recommend the best thermostat that will stand up to Ohio heat and humidity. Call us or schedule online for any of your HVAC needs or emergencies.
