How Do I Know When to Replace My Thermostat?

Published by Luke Weiden

Just like most things in life, your furnace only has a certain lifespan. At some point, you’ll have to consider replacing your thermostat if it is no longer working. From furnace installation in Lincoln Park to replacing your thermostat, rely on our team at Deljo Heating & Cooling for timely, affordable and high-quality services. Keep the following tips in mind to help determine when to replace your thermostat.

It’s Malfunctioning

Is your home excessively cold when it should be providing you comfort and safety? This is a tell-tale sign that you need to invest in a new thermostat. You also may be experiencing temperature fluctuations in each room, whether the room is too hot or too cold, this is a red flag. Malfunctioning thermostats are also slow to respond to changes, which is a sign you should call us as soon as possible.

Your Thermostat is Old

Consider the sheer age of your thermostat to help determine if it should be replaced. If your thermostat is over 30 years old, it won’t run as well as more current models. A newer model will be much more energy-efficient and provide you with much-needed consistency.

It’s Not Automatic

Older thermostats require that you set the temperature manually. Programmable, wi-fi-driven thermostats ensure that your home is always at a comfortable temperature even when nobody is home. 

Help with thermostat and furnace installation in Lincoln Park is only a phone call away!
