Quality Thermostat Repair & Replacement

The modulation of AC units and heaters hinges on the thermostat. This tiny sensor monitors temperature levels in your space. From these readings, it adjusts your HVAC unit to meet your cooling or heating needs. It also determines how long your heating or cooling system will run to reach the desired temperature profile. 

However, a thermostat is not exempt from malfunctions. It can become defective and result in inaccurate readings. When this occurs, your AC or furnace will also malfunction and blow hot or cold. Fortunately, our certified pros at Galbreath Heating & Air can help. We offer thermostat repair and replacement in Richmond Hill, GA, ensuring your HVAC systems function optimally.

Types of Thermostats

Thermostats are tiny temperature-actuated sensors that operate automatically based on the programmed temperature profile. They modulate your heating and cooling systems, ensuring they attain the desired comfort level. 

The following is a breakdown of the main types of thermostats in Richmond Hill, GA:

Analog Thermostats

Analog thermostats are common in older HVAC systems. They operate manually and feature a bi-metal strip connected to a thermometer. As temperatures rise or drop, the metal strip expands and contracts accordingly and disconnects the HVAC unit when it attains the set temperature profile. 

Digital Thermostats

Digital thermostats are automatic computer-operated sensors. They come with programmable settings. You only need to set your preferred profile, and the thermostat will modulate the HVAC unit without your intervention. Digital thermostats can also let you switch temperature profiles remotely through an accompanying smartphone app. 

Thermostat Repair Services 

Thermostats are highly sensitive and delicate. They have a limited lifespan and can fail when least expected, causing your HVAC system to develop issues. Fortunately, you can count on us for quality thermostat repair services in Richmond Hill, GA, to fix these problems.

Signs of Needing Thermostat Repair

A thermostat might be a tiny component. However, if it fails, it can compromise your entire HVAC unit. A Galbreath Heating & Air technician can inspect your thermostat to determine if it needs repairs. Below are signs that you need thermostat repair in Richmond Hill, GA:

Overheating Unit

A faulty thermostat will compel your HVAC system to strain to attain the set temperatures. Your unit will eventually overheat, compromising the safety of other internal components.

Blowing Hot or Cold

Thermostats modulate your HVAC unit based on the set temperature profile. If your unit produces inconsistent hot or cold air, the thermostat warrants a thorough inspection to diagnose the problem.

Inaccurate Readings

If your thermostat cannot keep up with temperature readings, it might require repairs. A Galbreath Heating & Air technician can help fix the issue through our expert thermostat repair service.

Power Issues

A malfunctioning thermostat can cause power issues. Your HVAC system might not turn on or off. A continuously running HVAC unit can be a safety hazard due to a lack of control. It will also consume more power, which spikes your energy bills.

Unresponsive Controls

The pilot light might turn yellow or become unresponsive because of a defective thermostat. Our professional thermostat repair in Richmond Hill, GA, can help resolve this issue.

Thermostat Replacement

After countless repairs,  a replacement can be a practical option. Your HVAC system might benefit from a new and upgraded thermostat. A Galbreath Heating & Air technician can help you select the appropriate thermostat replacement. We only need to verify its compatibility with your unit before installing one.

Here are the signs you might require thermostat replacement:

  • Frequent Repairs. If your thermostat requires frequent repairs every other week, consider replacing it.
  • Compatibility Issues. After a system upgrade, your current thermostat might be incompatible with your HVAC system. The only practical solution is to replace it.
  • Technological Advances. An analog thermostat might not work efficiently with new models. An upgrade can help you harness technological benefits.
  • Unrepairable Damage. If your thermostat is unrepairable, the only viable option is to replace it.

Perks of Thermostat Replacement

Thermostat replacement offers numerous benefits. With a new thermostat, you will not have to look at replacing an entire HVAC. It even makes your unit more energy-efficient for greater comfort and long-term savings. This is because it eradicates the need for constant repairs. 

Connect with Galbreath Heating & Air

Thermostats are indisputably integral to the modulation of HVAC systems. But they are very fragile and easily subject to failure. While thermostats are not immune to failure, they are repairable and replaceable. For expert thermostat repair and replacement in Richmond Hill, GA, call Galbreath Heating & Air.

Brandon is AWESOME!!! I have a new build home that’s almost 4 years old and experiencing HVAC issues. I originally had a different company come out that said I have a leaking coil and in total recommended close to $10K repairs to fix. Also they said the coil was on back order and never called me again. Awesome. Brandon came out for a second opinion and he was extremely polite, patient and courteous. He explained everything thoroughly and did not try to upsell us on unneeded items. His recommended fixes made sense and the infamous coil… their company called on the spot and found one that we could have in 1-3 business days and we walked away paying half the cost of the original quote. For anyone in the coastal Georgia area, Galbreath is a great option. We won’t go anywhere else from now on!
Mary C.
Galbreath Heating and Air went above and beyond when our upstairs unit went out in July. We have used them for everything since and are using them again to replace our downstairs unit. All there techs are super polite, knowledgeable, and trustworthy.
