Are the Batteries in Your Home’s Thermostat Ready for Replacement?

Are the Batteries in Your Home’s Thermostat Ready for Replacement?

Homeowners often don’t recall the last time they replaced their thermostat batteries. And often, they don’t replace the batteries in a manual or programmable thermostat until the A/C or furnace suddenly fails.

If your HVAC system won’t turn on, you may first think to call your local San Antonio HVAC technician. While we’ll be happy to help you, you can save time and money by first checking for dead thermostat batteries. (Be aware though that not all HVAC system thermostats are battery-operated.) Even if your system works fine today, why not head off the problem by checking its thermostat batteries? Thermostat battery replacement is a fast and easy do-it-yourself job.

Clues that it’s time to replace batteries in that thermostat:

  • Low battery indicator light on your thermostat and/or a beep from your thermostat unit.
  • Your air conditioning or furnace isn’t operating as reliable as it should.
  • You get a blank screen and are not able to set your thermostat or turn your HVAC system on.

When you replace batteries in a thermostat, it’s a great idea to also replace smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector batteries. This way, you can buy your new batteries on the same store trip if necessary. To remember to change your batteries every year, add in a reminder to your calendar on a holiday or other easy-to-remember date.
