How to Troubleshoot a Thermostat

An air conditioner is a favorite, reliable and comfortable appliance in our homes.  Nevertheless, when it can’t produce cold air, it can cause steam. If you run into problems with your thermostat or air conditioner, there are a few things you need to do before you call SDAC Heating & Air Conditioning Company.


If your air conditioner is not blowing cold air, it may not be because the machine is malfunctioning. The problem may be in thermostat. Thermostats are usually easier to fix, and it may require a little attention from the programmer. First, you need to check the switches on the control panel. Make sure all are in the correct “on” position and not flipped to the “off” position or otherwise suspended between the two positions.


A next step is to remove the box from the wall and check the wire connections. If they look old, frayed, or otherwise damaged, strip them down to shiny wire and splice them together for a better connection. Also check any screws that connect the wires to make sure they are tight and have a solid connection to the thermostat. If the thermostat is consistently hard or difficult to maintain at the correct temperature, it could be due to its location. Make sure the thermostat is not near a wall that gets a lot of heat from the outside or is too high up in the room and collects excess heat that rises.


Maintenance Tips
