Can You Tell If You’re Getting Correct Thermostat Readings?

Istock 1289916678

If your home thermostat readings aren’t accurate, your HVAC system won’t be delivering the optimum comfort you expect from a particular temperature setting. It may be costing you more too. Thermostats continually sense and display a temperature reading at a specific location inside the house. Most homeowners take it for granted that these thermostat readings are accurate.

However, a number of factors can skew thermostat readings. This, in turn, can prompt recurrent temperature adjustments that are not beneficial to indoor comfort control nor to the control of heating and cooling costs. Here are some principles that support optimum thermostat accuracy:

When Calibration Is Required

If the location of the thermostat is right but the thermostat setting and the actual indoor temperature never seem to agree, the thermostat may require calibration. This is not a DIY job and should be performed by a qualified HVAC technician only. Most HVAC technicians will verify thermostat calibration as part of a precision maintenance tune up. Many digital thermostats today are capable of maintaining temperature accuracy within one degree of the setting if calibrated correctly.
