Air Conditioning Repair Tip 2: Is My Thermostat Faulty?

 

It is important, living in Tucson, that you are able to depend on the reliable, efficient operation of your air conditioning system. Unfortunately, even with a high-quality system and routine maintenance service, there is no way to guarantee that your air conditioning system will always operate properly. There are a lot of different components that make up your air conditioner, and this means that there are also a lot of different things that could potentially go wrong. If your AC won’t cool your home it may be due to a faulty thermostat. Contact the Tucson air conditioning repair technicians at Goettl Good Guys today if you think that there is a problem with your thermostat.

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. Contact the Tucson air conditioning repair technicians at Goettl Good Guys today to learn more. We can find the exact cause of, as well as the solution to, any air conditioning problems you may have.
