| My Thermostat
Doesn't Maintain Temperature
This is usually
caused by a thermostat that isn't properly calibrated.
This can be a nuisance call because older thermostats
are mercury styled and after being calibrated
can shortly lose their calibration.
One solution is the new digital thermostats.
They never lose calibration and most have additional
programmable features that can save customers 20-30%
in fuel costs.
However, there are other things that can cause this
problem besides the thermostat. Several of them
are listed below. Depending upon your ability, most
of them can be addressed/fixed by the homeowner. Try
to check these conditions before you call
Hope this has been of some assistance, however
they are just rough guidelines and not all possible conditions
- Direct sun or another heat
source hitting thermostat.
- Thermostat not level
- Draft through hole in wall
