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.

Aaron was very professional, explained everything he was doing, helped me with any questions I had and was very nice. We have been customers of Galbreath Heating & Air for years and will never switch companies. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs a reliable, honest and hard working company!

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!

Another exceptional service call! Our new tech Aaron did an excellent job in servicing our HVAC system. Continuing the high standards of service.
Have dealt with several HVAC companies since moving to the Savannah area. First experience with Galbreath was excellent when called for a late summer night clogged drain line/pan in a lease home. After purchasing an older, rural home, we had to replace 2 heat pump systems, the first by another company (before Galbreath extended service into our area) and the second with Galbreath. Galbreath’s project manager (in our case Danny) shared his excellent product knowledge and provided 2 options allowing for an educated purchase for our specific needs. Technicians consistently arrive within time frame stated, listen to issues encountered, then work diligently to identify any issues, make repairs if necessary, and as in our case today, Brandon thoroughly inspected the 2 preexisting units and only needed to replace the faulty thermostats with the better functioning thermostat Galbreath installed with their heat pump system. All employees to date have been respectful of our property, and all certifications and filed warranties were provided promptly by courteous office staff. Previously having obtained pricing from 3 companies for various top rated brand heat pump installations, Galbreath’s pricing was competitive and their service consistently remains beyond comparison. We will not be calling any HVAC companies other than Galbreath in the future and wish all companies performed at their level of service and professionalism.

Great Service explained any problems with my HVAC unit and the cost for fixing it.

While I can't say that I am thrilled with the performance of the Lenox equipment having had two coils fail in less than 8 years of operation, the Galbreath team has been outstanding in supporting us from the initial purchase and installation, the annual service visits and the coil replacements. Unfortunately, it's hard to find conscientious workers who do quality work, but Galbreath seems to have succeeded in not only finding them, but keeping them. The technician who did our initial install over 8 years ago was the same one who did the most recent air handler replacement and he was excellent both times. Galbreath has my highest recommendation.
June M.
we were very happy with the service from Galbreth heating & air & especially Tyler ,Tim,Charlie,Austin & Ray . these men were on it from the time they arrived to install a new unit & cleaned up the mess before they left here . Tyler even walked us through the directions & how to install the unit on our phones & computer so we could control it while we were away from home. I would recommend them to everyone as we went with the best in this area . we are 100% satisfied
Vickie E.
I had my dryer vent cleaned. They came out in a timely manner. Jerry was very polite, helpful, and professional. I will be using this company from now on for my annual services. Very pleased.

Excellent service provider since 2017 when I contacted for coverage!
Kyle O.
Our HVAC system stopped working two days ago and Galbreath was able to schedule us next day. Aaron was very professional and personable. He explained the issues thoroughly and fixed our HVAC quickly. Highly recommend Galbreath and Aaron.
Bill J.
First of all, Danny Shapiro did a great job going over our options to replace our 2 systems. Once we decided, an appointment was set. The lead installer Charlie Clark and his crew of Austin, Ray and Tim were exceptional. They removed and replaced both systems with a minimum of disruption. The job was completed in 8 hours. They were respectful of our property and cleaned up thoroughly after the installation. My wife and I were very pleased with our choice of Galbreath for this project. Thanks to all for a job well done.Bill and Beth Jeffreys
Ashley L.
We continue receiving great service. Always professional and knowledgeable technicians. Great communication with the office staff. Communication is seamless. We have been using Galbreath for 10 years and trust this company.
Lisa D.
Fast emergency service. Kevin is wonderful. He was determined to find the problem, and he did.
Ted J.
The Galbreath team was very responsive when my heat pump needed servicing. Rebecca was very courteous and professional taking the inbound call and getting us scheduled for the next day. Zach came out and went through the system and found the issue to be the blower motor. He gave me a quote to repair and then got it scheduled and repaired the following day. Zach was very knowledgeable and helpful and explained exactly what was going on. He also showed me the value of the maintenance membership and we selected that option as well. With the age of my system, I can now count on 2 visits per year to keep it at top performance. In addition, with the S40 thermostat I have, Galbreath will probably know I have an issue even before I do!! Zach is a great technician and an asset to the company. On a side note, my wife really appreciates that Zach put on boot covers every time he can I to the house.I would highly recommend Galbreath for all your HVAC needs.
