How Do I Know If I Need a New Thermostat?

Is your thermostat giving you the cold shoulder these days? Perhaps it’s time to ditch the old and embrace the new! Here are some telltale signs that indicate it’s time to bid farewell to your old thermostat and welcome a shiny, new replacement into your home:

  • Inaccurate temperature readings: Your thermostat thinks it’s summer in the dead of winter – or vice versa. It keeps you guessing whether it’s sauna time or an arctic expedition in your living room. Your home shouldn’t feel like a weather rollercoaster; if it is, you may need a replacement.
  • Constantly running HVAC system: Your heating or cooling system never seems to get a break. It works tirelessly, trying to achieve the perfect temperature, but never quite gets there. If this sounds like yours, then it might be time to give your thermostat a much-needed retirement. 
  • Outdated technology: If your thermostat looks like it belongs in a museum, it’s time for an upgrade. Say goodbye to the relic on your wall and embrace the wonders of modern thermostat technology – from smart sensors and energy tracking or reporting, you’ll have even more options at your fingertips. 
  • Low energy efficiency: Are your energy bills skyrocketing for no apparent reason? Your thermostat might be the culprit, working against your efforts to save electricity and reduce costs. Let’s bring your utility bill back to Earth while keeping your home comfortable with a new thermostat. 

Benefits of a Home Thermostat Replacement

Ready to take the leap and embrace the world of thermostat upgrades? It’s time to bring your home into the 21st century and give that old thermostat a well-deserved retirement. Upgrading your thermostat comes with a host of benefits such as:

  • Precise temperature control: Say goodbye to temperature swings or guesswork. Set the exact temperature you desire and let your thermostat do the rest. It’s like having your own personal climate genie. A new thermostat can provide consistent comfort throughout your home, room by room, thanks to advanced zoning capabilities. 
  • Smart Home integration: Step into the future with a smart thermostat that seamlessly integrates into your connected home ecosystem. Control your thermostat remotely using your smartphone, even when you’re miles away. No more worrying about leaving the AC blasting while you’re on vacation.

Enjoy additional features like filter replacement reminders, maintenance alerts, and energy-saving tips to make your system as cost-effective as possible.

Thermostat Replacement FAQs

If your thermostat suddenly stops working, it’s likely due to a lack of power. You can try replacing the batteries or checking for a blown fuse in the electrical panel. However, if these steps don’t work, you may want to call a professional to have them inspect the problem to see if it needs repairs or a replacement.

It typically takes technicians at D&F around an hour to replace a home thermostat. Though some installations can take a bit longer – maybe because the thermostat is in a weird spot, or because you want to set up Smart Home integration or other features – it’s generally a pretty quick and easy process.

Investing in professional services is the best way to ensure you get great results with your thermostat replacement. Though replacing a thermostat is not exactly rocket science, it does require a certain level of electrical know-how. 

Think of it as a dance with the wires, where precision and caution are your trusty partners. If you’re comfortable working with electrical systems and have a knack for following instructions (not the “assembly required” kind that comes with a side of frustration), you’re on the right track. Otherwise, get in touch with our professionals today!

No, you don’t need an electrician to install a new thermostat – but you should get help from somebody who knows HVAC inside and out. New home thermostats can be tricky to install, and if you want the best results possible, it’s best to work with a professional.
