If your thermostat shows no signs of life or struggles to maintain a certain temperature, it may be time for a replacement. But before you rush out to buy a new one or phone a professional, first check if it’s switched on and if power is getting to the thermostat. Take a look at the thermostat’s fuse, the batteries and your home’s main fuse box.
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’ll recommend the best option for your house and heating requirements. Your heating engineer will first shut off your power supply and remove the cover of your old thermostat. They’ll then disconnect the wires and remove the old mount. Once they’ve made sure the wires are in a good condition, they’ll connect the new thermostat and test it before they go.
Finding a local professional often takes a lot of research. It’s not just about pinning them down, but you also need to check their credentials to make sure they can do the job safely and to the highest of standards.
