The Cure for an Unreliable Commercial Thermostat


Check through this list to see if your commercial services thermostats need a quick fix or a replacement.

How is your commercial services team working for you? It might be time to call them in for a thermostat check. Your goal is to run a successful business. It’s hard to have productive employees if the office is freezing or overheating them. An unreliable thermostat is often to blame. While more times than not the thermostat requires a replacement, sometimes a simple repair is all it needs.

Try these troubleshooting tips to help you determine what step you should take next:

1. Change the Location

Before you determine the thermostat is a bust, consider its location in the building. Near direct sunlight, drafts, or heat sources? This can easily alter its effectiveness. Your commercial services tech can help you relocate it to a spot that will increase accuracy.

2. Clean the Thermostat

This seems like a no brainer. However, it’s a very overlooked step. Dirt and dust buildup can accumulate under the cover which will affect its ability to read and control the building’s temperature. Take off the cover and use a soft brush to remove all the dirt and dust surrounding it; then try it again before deciding its no good.

3. Consider an Upgrade

If you’ve checked, cleaned, tested, and adjusted the thermostat and you still have temperature inconsistencies, it may be time for an upgrade. The older thermostats are, the less reliable they become. An upgrade to newer technology will have the system back on track and your employees back to their productive selves in no time.
