  • Why Is My Thermostat Blank?

    Energy Air

    Most families will notice an immediate change in the temperature when their thermostat’s screen goes blank. While a blank screen is not always a serious issue, it is something that should be addressed immediately to avoid any future problems. Read ahead for a look at three of the most common reasons why a thermostat might no longer be working properly.

    1. Circuit Breaker Tripped

    Everyone should know exactly where their home’s circuit breaker is and how to reset it. In some cases, a thermostat could be on the same breaker as other devices that are drawing too much power. Fixing this problem requires nothing more than flipping the breaker switch back to the correct position.

    2. Batteries Died

    Not all residential thermostats run on the home’s primary power supply. Many now require batteries that will need to be changed around once every year. If your thermostat’s screen has gone blank and it does run on batteries, the first thing you should try is replacing the batteries with a fresh set.

    3. Safety Switch Triggered

    In some homes, an air conditioner or furnace can trigger a safety switch and turn off the thermostat entirely if any damage has been detected. During the warmer months of the year when the air conditioner is being used, this generally takes place when there is a water overflow in the condensate pan. As for furnaces, a safety switch can be triggered when the unit becomes too hot and damage is imminent. No matter why the safety switch was triggered, you should have your system inspected immediately.
