The A/C tech told me it would be best to switch to a new thermostat, and he recommended a smart thermostat to me.
I don’t know what has been going on with the temperatures in our home lately, they have been all over the place! It seems no sooner I turn the thermostat up to warm our home, it is back down to 65 degrees and freezing our house again! I was tired of constantly going back and forth, making trips to the programmable thermostat just to adjust it. Something was obviously wrong, and I was determined to have it repaired. I definitely didn’t feel like troubleshooting the thermostat myself, and so I left that job to A/C professionals. The appointment for the certified A/C technician to come out was this Wednesday. The days couldn’t come quick enough, and when the A/C worker came over to our home, I was ecstatic to finally have this issue resolved. The A/C repairman took one look at the thermostat and told me that it was incredibly old, and that was likely the issue in itself. When a dial thermostat starts getting old, the chances of it malfunctioning increases drastically. The A/C tech told me it would be best to switch to a new thermostat, and he recommended a smart thermostat to me. I took his advice and bought a smart thermostat the same day. I had the thermostat expedited to me, because I wanted it as quickly as possible. I received it the next day, and after my husband installed it, we didn’t have any issues any more. The old age of our previous thermostat must have been the issue after all.
