Do you notice that your home suddenly feels too warm, even though you have your thermostat set to keep it cool and comfortable? This could well be the result of a faulty thermostat. There are many different reasons that your air conditioning system may suffer this problem. It is possible that it is simply unable to accurately read the temperature in your home. In this case, it may need to be cleaned. You can remove the cover and clear out any dirt and debris that has accumulated in there. This may help the thermostat to more accurately read the temperature in your home.
This problem is not necessarily the direct result of a faulty thermostat. In fact, it is possible for your thermostat to be reading the temperature properly, but for your AC to still leave you uncomfortable. If you have the cover of your thermostat off, feel to see if there is any cool air coming from behind it. If there is a cool draft, it is possible for your thermostat to read the temperature of your home as being cool, resulting in less cooling power from your AC. Your thermostat must be placed in a spot indicative of the true temperature in your home in order to operate properly. As you can see, determining if your thermostat is actually faulty can be trickier than you may have thought.
