Is your heating and cooling system not working as it should? Although there are any number of possible reasons for this, a good place to start is by hiring a Steve’s Plumbing & Heating technician to test your thermostat. We can assess your unit to see if it is functioning properly and repair it, if necessary. Our inspection process involves the following:


Test the Wires

We remove the thermostat cover and start inspecting the wires. The goal is to see if the air conditioner or heating system will work without the aid of the thermostat. If the system turns on without the unit, then the controller is broken and needs to be replaced. This process is achieved by rearranging certain wires. Because this type of inspection can be hazardous we recommend that you do not perform this job on your own.


Clean The Parts

Sometimes the thermostat needs a professional cleaning. Over time, dust and dirt can build up inside the box and affect the thermostat’s performance. We use special tools and solution to remove all the dirt and other particles from inside, put the cover back on, and then test the unit once again.


Recalibrate the Thermostat

Your thermostat may not need to be repaired, but, rather, recalibrated. This ensures that every time you set the temperature that it will accurately heat or cool the house to that same temperature. Modern thermostats do need to be calibrated as much as the older models. Regardless of what type of equipment you have, we can reset it to give you optimal control.


Is there Corrosion?

Outdated thermostats can suffer from corrosion if left unchecked. Corrosion can deteriorate the wiring as well weaken any connections within the unit. Once corrosion sets in, it’s definitely a sign that you need a new system. Although it’s possible to continue repairing your thermostat, in the end, you are spinning your wheels and wasting money.
