This two-week informational topic will discuss the most common 8 reasons why your thermostat is not working, whether that be that it’s not turning on or that the screen is blank.
Incorrect thermostat setting: If the thermostat has been turned off, its display will be blank. Thermostats should be left on throughout the year rather than being turned off, but accidental adjustments are possible. Verify this setting and ensure the thermostat itself is on.
Dead Batteries: Check your batteries often to ensure this is not the issue. Without batteries, the thermostat cannot turn on or control the heating unit.
No electrical Power: Some thermostats are hardwired and powered by the home’s electrical system. A tripped breaker or blown fuse in the electrical panel may prevent the thermostat from receiving power. Resetting the power or replacing the blown fuse will correct this issue.
Loose Wiring: If thermostat wiring becomes loose, its operation may be disrupted. An HVAC technician here at AC Daves Heating and Air is able to identify issues with wiring and electrical connections within the thermostat/ Sometimes these issues are repairable, while other times it may be necessary to replace the thermostat.
