Chuck from American Mechanical was a huge help today.  Our sewer tends to back up due to a large tree in front of our house, and he made several great suggestions for what we can do in the future to ... More fix this, so we don’t have to ask him to come out on the weekend when it actually starts backing up into the house.  I highly recommend AMI for plumbing work and Chuck is fantastic!"

Do You Still Have an Analog Thermostat?

The time to replace an analog thermostat has come and gone. Replacing your analog with a digital thermostat gives you more precise control over the temperature, which will help you save money. Another cost-effective feature of a modern thermostat is the ability to set modes for nights, weekends, and even when you leave town. Automatically adjusting the thermostat saves money when you leave the house or don’t need the heat on as high.

However, even the more modern digital thermostats need to be replaced over time. If your thermostat doesn’t stay at the setting that you specified, or if your home doesn’t get as warm as you’ve set it, it may be time to replace your thermostat. Note: Generally, a heater that doesn’t turn on is a sign of problems within the heater itself and not indicative of a thermostat problem.

What are Common Thermostat Problems?

Dust: Dust can often cause a thermostat to malfunction. Remove the thermostat cover after shutting off electricity to the room, and then look for dust on your unit. A small paintbrush with soft bristles should do the trick when it comes to dusting in such tight spaces.

Wire corrosion: After removing the housing from your thermostat, you may notice corrosion on the wires that may lead to malfunctions. We recommend calling your technician for help to remove the corroded wiring and reconnect the wires. Severely corroded wires will be beyond repairs, signalling the need for a new thermostat.

No battery charge: Some thermostats require batteries for operation. If your display is no longer working, first check that your batteries are installed correctly and have a charge. Consult your manual if you’re not sure if your thermostat requires batteries or how to change them.Call us today at 757-644-3685757-644-3685 for help in determining whether your thermostat or HVAC system–or both– need a tune-up or replacement.
