It could be concerning when your HVAC system is not working as expected. In some cases, there is nothing wrong with your heating and air conditioning, and your thermostat could be the culprit. Tweaking it might do the trick to make your living space more comfortable.
Here are possible reasons your thermostat can’t reach your desired temperature.
It Has Incorrect Settings
Is your thermostat set to “on?” If so, change it to the “auto” setting. When your thermostat is set to “on,” the fan will keep circulating air in your home regardless if it’s been heated or cooled. On the other hand, warm or cool air will flow in your living space when it’s set to “auto.”
It Needs New Batteries
If your thermostat’s display has gone blank, it might need a new set of batteries. After replacing the batteries, the screen should turn back on. Call your local heating service provider if it is still not working.
It Lost Its Internet Connection
Modern thermostats usually require an internet connection. If yours loses its wifi connection, it won’t run properly. You could try resetting your router by turning it off and waiting a minute to turn it back on. Turn to the thermostat’s manual if the problem persists.
It’s Installed in the Wrong Location
Your thermostat’s location matters because it will generate incorrect readings when installed in a place prone to extreme temperatures. As a result, your HVAC system will not operate efficiently. Avoid placing your thermostat in drafty areas and parts of your house that receive lots of sunlight.
