There is nothing more frustrating than finding out that your heat pump is not working properly, and suspecting that the cause is your heat pump thermostat. These devices regulate the temperature at which heat travels into the home, and if they are too low, they can actually make it seem cold. Heat pump failures can be often attributed to the thermostat malfunctioning, or being completely broken. If you have this problem, you might be tempted to call in an engineer or mechanic, but this can be very costly, and you can save yourself some money by inspecting the system and looking out for trouble spots.
Troubleshooting Your Heat Pump Thermostat
If you want to look at the thermostat as the source of your problems, then you should check that the other parts are working well. You may already know that this is the case, but if you are not sure, then look into it, as you may find yourself troubleshooting the thermostat when in fact the problem is to be found in a completely different part of the heat pump. Even if you are sure that the problem is in another area, look at the thermostat as well, to eliminate contributing problems.
