Your thermostat is essentially the brain of your air conditioner. It sends a signal to the air conditioner as soon as temperatures elevate above what you need and forces the AC to shut back off again once everything returns to normal. Of course, if the thermostat is not working, you won’t be able to use your air conditioner at all, and this is the reason for many of the frantic emergency AC repair calls we receive.
So why is your thermostat blank? It could be something that is quite simple to fix on your own—or it could be a larger problem that gives you an opportunity to upgrade to a more advanced programmable thermostat.
Some thermostats are battery-operated so that they can be controlled wirelessly from any location in the home, without the need to be hard-wired into the electrical system. Remove the wall cover and try replacing the batteries before calling a technician.
It could just be that something has tripped the circuit breaker (or blown a fuse, if you still have a fuse box in your home), and a quick reset should solve this issue. If not, there may be something wrong with the wiring. In this case, you’ll need to contact an HVAC technician to check out the problem.
Of course, like any of the electrical components of your home, the thermostat is going to have to be replaced eventually. After some time, purchasing a new thermostat is the only way to restore your AC and heating systems. But this gives you the opportunity to select a new modern programmable thermostat with advanced programming options that allows you to vary the temperature throughout the day for maximum energy savings.

Kyle came out to do maintenance on the unit they installed 4 years ago and I can say the level of service from then to now has been stellar. The unit is in great shape and the peace of mind from their maintenance service is worth it. Nothing but good things to say about this company. 10/10 would recommend.

The best, end of story! We had to have our system replaced when we bought our old beach home. I was totally blown away with how quickly the job was done. The crew was extremely professional, and kept everything clean.

Jason and crew were great to work with. A hands on owner which cares about the work and system being installed. Extremely recommend. The three hundred dollar rebate from Beaches Energy for the high efficiency unit was also icing on the cake.

I had Kyle as my technician and the customer service was top notch. He was prompt and very polite. The thing I appreciated was the honesty. There wasn’t any attempt to try and provide me service that I didn’t need, and no pressure to try and upsell me on anything. Kyle was knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. I got on the maintenance plan and recommend this company to everyone.
