Check the Temperature Settings

Many modern thermostats have preset temperatures. While you may think you set your thermostat to the degree you want, a preset could override this, and not turn on your HVAC system. Make sure you know all your preset times, so your thermostat provides the temperature you want when you want it.

Check the Location

If your thermostat is located near a door, window, in a hallway, or other not-so-ideal location, it may not detect proper temperatures and won't work as it should. It's important to have your thermostat located in the right area of your home, such as a bedroom or living room, so it picks up the right temperature when needed.

Check the Connections

Take your thermostat off the wall and take a look at all the wires. they should be tight and Visually in good condition. If any of the connections seem loose or the wires are frayed or burned, you will need an HVAC technician or electrician to repair the thermostat for you.
