How Smart Thermostats Can Help to Diagnose a Problem

Litchfield, NH Homeowner Learns Smart Thermostat Capabilities

Smart thermostats offer plenty of functionality, from scheduling to controlling humidity levels. They are also able to diagnose problems in the HVAC system, alerting the homeowner often even before they have realized that there is a problem. When connected to the home’s internet, smart thermostats can also perform regular checks on the unit, identifying any problems. This can be done when the homeowner is on vacation via emails or texts.
A homeowner in Litchfield had installed a smart thermostat in her home. She was surprised to find that she was receiving alerts through an app on her phone, alerting her of a problem with her HVAC unit.

Smart Thermostats Measure Unit Based on Heating or Cooling Load

These thermostats are able to keep track of data about how long the system runs on very hot or very cold days. This can give an indication of whether the system is sized correctly for the space that it is cooling or heating, even offering an HVAC size that may be better suited for your needs. Older thermostats lacked much of this intelligence and data gathering that is seen in today’s smart thermostats. This information can be invaluable to the homeowner.

Running Smart Thermostat Diagnostics

In some cases, the thermostat will be the first indicator that there is a problem with the inner workings of your HVAC unit. An alert or error message may show up on the thermostat, even with an alert to your phone or email if this has been set up. If the system has not been running as efficiently as it has in the past or you have a feeling that there may be a problem, you can run a diagnostic troubleshoot within the thermostat. This will check various points for a problem, identifying the homeowner if something is found.

The homeowner in Litchfield was happy to be alerted of the problem right away by her smart thermostat. A call in to Joyce Cooling & Heating and a technician was able to service her HVAC unit right away, ensuring that it stays up and running flawlessly.


Testimonials & Reviews

We had central air conditioning installed last year by Joyce and were very satisfied with the job. Today, John N. serviced the unit and all of the components and he was incredibly thorough and professional. He explained exactly what was serviced and what to avoid (greenery around the outdoor unit). I highly recommend Joyce Cooling & Heating!
