Check Your Thermostat!
Maybe you’re still on the fence about whether your heater needs to be repaired or not. Maybe you haven’t even needed to turn it on yet. Don’t wait until you really need the heater to find out your thermostat is not working! Here’s some steps on how to test if you thermostat is sending a signal to your furnace thanks to homeguides.sfgate.com:
- Check your thermostat to make sure it is in the “On” position. Ensure the thermostat is set on the appropriate setting — “Heat” or “Cool.” Check for any programming overrides on a programmable thermostat to confirm that the overrides are not impeding the thermostat operation. Also, check the battery to make sure it is fresh, if your programmable thermostat requires a battery.
- Stand at the thermostat while an assistant stands at the furnace. Move the thermostat to heat. If your furnace is not within shouting distance from your thermostat, use walkie-talkies to communicate.
- Raise the thermostat heat settings slowly. The thermostat should emit a clicking sound and the furnace should also make a sound. If the furnace does not make a sound, the thermostat is not sending a signal and needs to be replaced.
- Turn off the breaker to your furnace. Remove the cover from the thermostat to expose the wiring. Because the thermostat operates on low voltage, there is no risk of electrocution.
- Take a picture with your phone or digital camera of the wiring inside the thermostat to show how they connect. Loosen the screw label “R” or “Rh” and the screw labeled “W.” Remove the wires from beneath the screws.
- Twist the ends of the wires together. Turn on the furnace breaker. If the furnace comes on, the thermostat is not sending a signal and needs replacing. If the furnace does not turn on, the furnace needs repair.
