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.

I scheduled a maintenance check up and Gil, my technician, found a broken part that without repair, would have led to us having no a/c, He also found a clogged drainage pipe , which he replaced. I am thankful that we have a maintenance contract and we avoided a more costly repair.

Brandon came to our house to service our very old system. He was courteous, and even vacuumed some debris off of the attic stairs left behind from roof repair. Honest and knowledgeable. We hope to see him again in the future as our tech.
Janet G.
Our A/C stopped working while we were out of town. On the day of our return, I called around 1:30 pm for service and the service technician (Gil) was at our house by 3:30 pm same day. Was unable to fix that day, but ordered the part and scheduled the repair (2 days) before he left our house. Very pleased with the response and the sense of urgency. Thanks!
Jobie S.

Robert L.
Thank you for sending Kevin Jackson our way. He done a great job. Was very polite and informative. Explained everything to us. You should be proud to have him on your team. Thank you again.
Nicole F.
We called them around 1pm. They were able to get to us around 330 pm. It was $90 for service charge. That was average for the five companies I called. We would have to wait 24 hours with other companies and in some cases 96 hours for them to come perform a diagnosis. Once Brandon arrived he was very active in diagnosing the issue. He was also very attentive to keeping his work area clean! We are seeing improvement, but they just performed the work so here’s to hoping the diagnosis is correct!
Cathy L.
Very happy with the service! Our service technician, Brandon, was extremely helpful, explaining everything in detail and providing us with all of our options. Our project lead, Tyler, was excellent in providing us with the best Lennox system needed for our house and sending us the absolute best professional installers in Charlie, Austin, Ray, and Brandon. Thank you!!
