Thermostat error codes are your thermostat’s way of telling you what’s wrong and what you need to do to fix it. While an old, analog thermostat can’t give you an error code, any modern digital thermostat or wi-fi controlled thermostat will.
Two of the major brands of digital thermostats, Nest and Honeywell, offer services to help consumers understand what their thermostat error codes mean.
Whatever error you see, and whether or not we installed your thermostat, a One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning Technician can fix it. That’s a guarantee.
What’s the Point of Thermostat Error Codes
Picture a boiling hot summer day. You turn down the thermostat, but instead of providing cool air — your thermostat flashes you an error message. The thermostat error code, a combination of letters and numbers, might as well be ancient Greek to you.
More advanced thermostats allow you to save money and have maximum control over your home temperature. However, as thermostats become more complex and multifaceted, more can go wrong with them.
In theory, a thermostat error code tells you what’s wrong — and what needs to be done to fix it.
