Your thermostat is the conductor of the orchestra that is your HVAC system. If you don’t have a great thermostat in this set up, then you’re going to notice that you have trouble getting as comfortable as you’d like to be. Let’s get into the signs that you might benefit from a new thermostat below. 

Signs Your System Needs to Be Replaced

Here are a few signs that you should consider replacing your home’s thermostat system.

Temperature Changes

What’s the temperature of your home like? Is it measured and dependable? If it isn’t, then we’d definitely suggest checking in with your thermostat. Sometimes, your thermostat isn’t set up for success. It might not be in the appropriate part of the home to get an accurate reading of its internal temperature. It could also be outdated. If you haven’t upgraded your thermostat in nearly a decade, then it’s definitely time to consider making a switch. Smart and Wi-Fi thermostats offer the best in energy savings and cost-efficiency. 

Short Cycling

Short cycling is when your system starts, runs for a short amount of time, stops, and begins again. This is a clear sign that you’re struggling with something efficiency-wise and your thermostat could be the culprit. Thermostats that have a hard time getting a clear reading are bad news and might need to be upgraded to solve this problem.

Programming Issues

Does it seem as though your thermostat is defiant? Maybe whatever you program it to rarely seems like enough. Maybe you can’t seem to get a consistent temperature in your home. This is often the fault of a thermostat and it can be rectified with an upgrade.
