If your thermostat shows no signs of life, switches itself on and off or struggles to maintain a certain temperature, it’s time to take a closer look. Start by checking if it’s on and clean – built-up dust and other debris can sometimes interfere with the connection. If you’ve ruled out these common problems, try to work out if power is getting to your thermostat. You can check your fuse box, the thermostat’s fuse and the batteries.
If you still can’t get it working, it’s time to ask a professional for help. We recommend getting a qualified heating engineer out – they have all the skills and knowledge to pinpoint the problem and recommend the best way forward. Your heating engineer will switch off your power supply, remove the thermostat cover and test the wires. If the thermostat and its inner workings are beyond repair, they’ll replace the unit.
Finding local professionals can take hours of research. Not only do you have to pin them down, but you also need to check their credentials to make sure they’re qualified to do the job at hand.
