The thermostat is fundamental to running an air conditioning and heating system in a home. If you have a dysfunctional thermostat, then you won’t have the heating or cooling you need. If you find that any adjustments you make to your home’s thermostat do no good and HVAC system isn’t responding, then it may mean that it is in need of repair.
Depending on the issue, you may be able to fix it on your own.
What to Consider
The tricky thing about HVAC systems is that it’s hard to find out exactly what the problem is when it starts to malfunction. You might instinctively assume that a furnace is the reason for a thermostat that’s lost its connection. Well that could be, also consider the other possibilities, such as a broken blower fan motor, a bad electronic relay, or overflow in the AC condensate pan.
Simple Checks to Make
Before you call for professional help, you may want to try some troubleshooting that won’t cause harm to HVAC system. You should check the circuit breaker panel. You should see a display on the thermostat. That doesn’t mean the circuit breaker for the AC or furnace hasn’t tripped though. This is a pretty typical reason for an HVAC system failing to turn on. Try resetting the breaker and starting up the system again. If the breaker trips again, call One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning in Lubbock, TX for repair service. Contact us at 806-771-4687 .
