I couldn’t figure out why the thermostat kept changing on its own.
- I was starting to think that the house was haunted or something because every single time that I changed the temperature on the thermostat, it changed back again! I was getting really frustrated about it the other day and I finally decided that I needed to call the HVAC company to see if they could come over and figure out what the problem was.
It was literally driving me crazy. I was beginning to wonder if there was something wrong with me and maybe I was sleepwalking and changing the temperature on the thermostat myself or something! It was really driving me nuts and so I made an appointment with the HVAC company. Whenever the HVAC technician came inside the house to check out the thermostat, it took him about sixty seconds to figure out what the problem was. He said that I had somehow reset the programmable thermostat so that it was just following a different program than what I was used to. He said that sometimes this sort of thing happens whenever the power goes out or there is a power surge. Sure enough, as soon as he said that, I remembered the power going out for a few minutes a couple of weeks before. He reset my scheduled thermostat program for me, and now everything is working just fine again. I can’t believe that I didn’t figure out the problem myself. It wasn’t like it was a huge mystery or anything. Hopefully my HVAC repair bill won’t be very expensive.
