In A Constant Battle with Your Thermostat? Here’s Why

One of the worst things that can happen to your home in winter is poor heating efficiency. The first way that you start to notice this is with your home’s thermostat. If you feel like you need to set up a tent right in front of your thermostat, then it’s because you have bad thermostat efficiency. It might be time for you to replace your home’s thermostat.

Your thermostat should be able to keep your home at a steady temperature without much interference. If this isn’t the case, then it’s time for you to call us for your heating in Bellevue, WA. We want to help you get your heater to perform at its best. You can do this with the help of our team.

Is Your Thermostat the Problem?

Let’s start by going through the checklist of what could be the problem. The main question that you need to ask yourself is this: Is it the thermostat or is it the heater itself?

The thermostat is the first place you should start in your investigation. Your thermostat could very well be the problem if you’d have your thermostat for a while. An old, digital thermostat isn’t what you want for your home. If you don’t have a smart or a Wi-Fi thermostat, then you’re going to need to upgrade now. You need a new, fresh thermostat for the work you’re looking for.

If you’re unsure if this is a problem, then you need to invest in work with our professionals. We can determine what the problem is exactly.

Okay… It’s Something Else. So What Is It?

Okay, so nothing above really sounds like it’s checking off any boxes for you. Your thermostat is either brand new or in pristine condition. Something else is wrong. What is it?

Your Heater Is Broken

Your heater might actually be the problem with your home. If you’ve noticed that your heater hasn’t been working the way that you’re used to for a while, then you should definitely consider repairing your home’s heater. Repair doesn’t have to be a hassle even if it is in the middle of heating season. We’re going to make it as easy as possible for you.

What if you’ve already repaired your heater and nothing has really changed? This is a sign that you might need to take things a step further and go for repair work. You can’t drag out things with your home’s heater. Sometimes, it’s better to just cut your losses and opt for a new, efficient system.

Your Ducts Are Bad

Sometimes the problem isn’t your thermostat or heater, the problem is actually with your home’s ductwork. If you have ductwork that has leaks, gaps, or any other problems, then it’s going to lead to efficiency issues. We’re the ones who can help you bypass this. Your ducts shouldn’t ever be something that you have to work around. They should work with your home.
