Feeling too hot? You would like to cool down the room temperature, right? Feeling too cold now? You will need to set the temperature accordingly. If you wish your home to keep its temperature constant, rely on a smart thermostat to do the job for you! But did you just realise that your thermostat is not reaching the set temperature? Then it could be as a result of multiple factors. In this blog, let us discuss some possible reasons why your thermostat is not reaching the set temperature.
- Wrong thermostat placement
Proper thermostat placement is critical for the proper functioning of the thermostat. If you want it to reach the set temperature, then you need to ensure that it is correctly placed. Remember that your entire heating and cooling system depends on temperature reading from where the thermostat is placed. If it is placed in the wrong location, then it will send a wrong signal that may affect other parts of the house. To avoid this, ensure that the thermostat is away from direct sunlight and placed in a central location that is free from humidity. Our thermostat installation experts can help you to place the thermostat in the right location.
- Incorrect thermostat size
Another reason why your thermostat is not reaching the set temperature is that it is too big or too small for the home. Before you assume that the thermostat has a technical problem, you need to consider the possibility that you may be using a wrong sized thermostat. For instance, if the thermostat is too small for your home, then it will be forced to work overtime to attain the required temperature. On the other hand, if the thermostat is too big for your house, then your home temperature will go beyond the set temperature. To avoid this, you need to ensure that you install an HVAC system that is right for your home. It should not be too big or too small.
- The thermostat is not reading properly
If your HVAC system is well maintained and serviced but the thermostat is still not reaching the set temperature, then it could be because the thermostat is not well calibrated. Over a period, thermostat calibration usually skews in one direction making it show incorrect reading. If that is the case with your thermostat, then it will not reach the set temperature. We recommend that you place an independent thermometer near the thermostat and check if there is a discrepancy. If that is the case, then you should call a thermostat technician to fix the problem.
- Poorly maintained HVAC
A poorly maintained HVCA can prevent the thermostat from reaching the set temperature. For instance, if the fan is not working well, it may interfere with the thermostat balance preventing it from reaching the set temperature. To prevent this, you need to ensure that your HVAC is well inspected and repaired.
