The Most Common Thermostat Problems for Electricians

You depend on a thermostat every day to ensure your home maintains a comfortable temperature. However, like all devices, thermostats have a service lifespan, and one day they won’t work. They also experience occasional issues along the way. Repairing a faulty thermostat always calls for an expert. You should turn to a reputable and licensed electrician to give you a hand.



Common Problems


Perhaps the problem that occurs most often is faulty wiring. The only effective way to address this issue is to rewire the thermostat, which may require removing a section of the wall to allow the replacement of wiring.


One other typical issue is the thermostat’s improper location. As an example, a thermostat that was installed inside the basement will measure and provide temperature readings that will be inappropriate for the other areas of the home, such as bedrooms, where people spend most of their time. An improper thermostat location will leave these areas either too cold or too hot. The best course of action is relocating the thermostat to a more suitable location, which will require rewiring, along with the reinstallation or replacement of the device.


Thermostat failure can also be attributed to either a tripped circuit or blown fuse. A homeowner can either reset the circuit breaker or replace the blown fuse but if there is any doubt about the proper fuse to use, an electrician should be consulted. The wrong fuse may lead to an electrical fire.



Average Cost


The average cost of thermostat repair will depend on the problems involved and the location of your home. The area where you live may play a part in the cost of repair as labor may be more expensive there. However, homeowners should expect to pay several hundred dollars for home thermostat repair. It is advisable to get an estimate first to ensure the charges are reasonable. At the end of the day, what will be most important is finding an expert and licensed electrician for high-quality and professional work.

Upgrade Your Ventilation Fan for Fresher Bathroom Air – Part 2

As mentioned in Part 1, it’s probably time to upgrade your bathroom ventilation fan if your air stays humid and odors linger even when it is running. Part 2 will discuss the important features of bathroom ventilation fans. We recommend consulting with an experienced and reputable electrician, who can provide the advice and services you will need.



Air Flow Capacity


Measured in cubic feet per minute (cfm), bathroom ventilation fans vary in airflow capacity. By using Home Ventilating Institute guidelines, you will be able to calculate the needed capacity for your bathroom. Typically, 1 cfm for every square foot of bathroom floor space is needed. An additional 50 cfm per toilet, 50 cfm per shower, 50 cfm per bathtub, and 100 cfm per whirlpool will be necessary for bathrooms larger than 100 square feet.

Upgrade Your Ventilation Fan for Fresher Bathroom Air – Part 1

If your bathroom air stays humid or has an odor even with the fan running, it’s time to upgrade your ventilation fan. To choose the right type, the bathroom’s size, method of venting, and extra features need to be considered. Part 1 will cover the tips and advantages of upgrading a bathroom ventilation fan. Talk to a licensed electrician about your options and installation for the best results.



Moisture’s Effects


Hot showers and long baths may have negative effects on a house and your health. Moisture and humidity in an enclosed bathroom help create ideal conditions for mold and mildew. Both can deteriorate wood, drywall, wallpaper, paint, and other building materials. Mold and mildew are also known to cause respiratory, nervous system, allergy, and mental health issues. A correctly installed, functioning, and efficient bathroom ventilation fan will remove not only moisture, but also unpleasant odors and mold spores. An exhaust fan is usually needed to comply with building codes, especially if a bathroom is windowless.



Purchase & Installation Costs


Innovation and new technology have made bathroom ventilation fans quieter, smarter, and more efficient. Modern models boast extra features such as motion-activated sensors and heat-exchanger ventilation. Consider budgeting from $75 to $400 for buying a new bathroom ventilation fan and $250 to $500 to pay a licensed electrical contractor for installation.



Venting


In older homes, many bathroom ventilation fans sent the exhaust air into enclosed and unlit areas, such as attics, where humidity can condense on cool surfaces. If this exhaust is filled with moisture, mold can grow and spread, causing damage to walls, floors, and ceilings. Building codes now require a more intelligent and healthy alternative, which are vent ducts that channel exhaust outside the home.



Heat Exchange Ventilator Fan


A standard bathroom ventilation fan removes warmed air from a home, causing a heater or furnace to work harder and waste energy. The solution is installing a heat-exchange ventilator fan, which utilizes warm exhaust air to heat incoming air that is cooler. This device helps save energy costs in the colder months, but heat exchanger models are priced two times more than standard bathroom ventilation fans.


Part 2 will discuss the bathroom ventilation fan’s important features.
