Temperatures around the United States are starting to get frigid. Keeping the inside of your home warm during the winter months is only possible if all of your HVAC system components are functioning properly. American homeowners spend millions of dollars annually on HVAC repair and maintenance. Working with seasoned professionals is the only way to find and fix the problems your HVAC unit has early on. 

The thermostat attached to your HVAC system performs a very specific and important job. As time goes by, the thermostat in your home will start to wear out. Generally, you will notice many signs when it is time to replace your existing HVAC unit and here are some of them. 

Higher Than Normal Energy Bills

During the winter months, it is normal for energy consumption to increase. This can result in your energy bill getting a bit higher. However, if you start to notice a drastic spike in the amount of energy your home consumes, you need to find out why this is happening. If your existing thermostat is not accurate, it can lead to your unit running continuously. 

Failing to provide your unit with a break can lead to it getting overworked. Not only will this increase energy consumption rates, it can also wear your unit out prematurely. Working with the team at Hall Heating and Air is crucial when trying to diagnose and fix your thermostat problems. 

Your HVAC Units Turns Off and On Constantly

The primary function of your thermostat is to communicate with your HVAC unit. This communication lets the HVAC unit know when it needs to come on and when it needs to shut off. However, if you start to notice that your unit is coming on and going off just as fast, it might be time to get your existing thermostat checked out. 

As time goes by, the wiring inside of your thermostat will get frayed and damaged. When this damage occurs, it can interrupt the connection between your thermostat and HVAC unit. Instead of dealing with the problems caused by constant cycling, you need to invest in a new thermostat. 

If you want to increase the control you have over your HVAC unit, investing in a smart thermostat is a wise move. These thermostats allow you to alter temperature settings on your phone. This means you can avoid running your HVAC unit during the day when you are at work. 

A Lack of Responsiveness

When a thermostat is working properly, it allows you to activate your HVAC unit in a matter of seconds. If you start to notice the time between when thermostat settings are changed and your HVAC unit responds, then you need to figure out why. In most cases, this lack of responsiveness is an indication that your existing thermostat needs to be replaced. With the addition of a new thermostat, you can fix these issues in a hurry.

I called Hall Heating and Air to schedule a furnace inspection before cold weather hits. The ladies that answered the phone at Hall Heating and Air were very helpful, very professional, and Caleb our technician was able to come the very next day. I was so surprised they were able to fit us in so quickly! Caleb was able to determine the state of our furnace, and with a camera showed us the damage to the gas pipes. He immediately called back to his office at Hall Heating and Air and they were able to get us the information we needed for a new furnace. Holly was extremely helpful when I spoke to her at the office and helped us with financing. They were able to approve us the very same morning. I would recommend Hall Heating and Air over many many businesses in our area that provide the same service.
