Signs you need to repair your thermostat.

There isn't one specific answer to that question. Here are some things that mean it's time to repair your thermostat.

  • Increase in energy bills. A spike in your monthly energy bill can point to issues with your thermostat. Although this is broad, don't totally throw it out the window.
  • The thermostat does not turn on. If it doesn't turn on, it is very obvious a repair is needed.
  • Cannot control the climate in the home. Thermostats will sometimes malfunction and not allow you to make adjustments to the climate in your home. This is worthless since that is the main purpose of a thermostat.

Since that is such a broad question the main sign your thermostat needs a repair is if it just "isn't working".
