04 Nov Change Thermostat Batteries
With the arrival of the cold weather you want to ensure that your heating equipment is functioning.
Sometimes a dead furnace is the result of a couple of dead thermostat batteries!
You should change the batteries on your programmable thermostat once a year. Most smart thermostats take alkaline batteries (AA or AAA) or 3 volt lithium batteries. These batteries are commonly available.
Your thermostat uses the batteries to keep your programming saved when the power goes out. Although your thermostat is wired directly to the furnace, a thermostat with a dead battery can lead to lack of heat.
Some thermostats include a low battery indicator. This will give you a warning a few weeks in advance that your batteries are running out of juice.
You certainly don’t want to pay for an emergency “no heat” service call, simply to find out your thermostat battery is dead.
It’s good practice to change the batteries once a year, just like you would with your smoke detectors. You can simply program a reminder into your phone, iPad or computer.
If your heat loss is not battery related, Give Salmon Plumbing and Heating a call for quick, courteous service.
