The thermostat has become an essential component in almost every temperature controlling device. The thermostat is responsible for controlling the device and basically telling it when to start cooling and when to stop. It is rather an essential component of air conditioners and therefore it is vital to know about a thermostat and its functions.
As technology has advanced, thermostats have been developed to a modern form where they run on batteries rather than taking their power directly from the power supply of the device they are fitted into.
Modern-day thermostats usually require two types of batteries to operate; they either require the AA or AAA alkaline batteries or the 3V button-style lithium batteries. People who work on thermostats recommend that users should change the batteries of their thermostats at least once a year.
However, when buying a thermostat-controlled device, users often ask the question of how they will know the right time to change their batteries. The question is answered by the thermostat itself as it has a built-in warning system that is designed to warn the user a month prior to the time when the batteries will actually be dead. Thus, it allows giving users a whole month to find the right type of batteries for their thermostats.
STEPS TO CHANGE THE BATTERIES
- The first step is to detach the thermostat from the wall mount plate. This can be done by hand, if it does not gets detached by hand then it can be done by sliding the thermostat housing upward and then detaching it.
- The slot of the batteries is present on the other side of the wall housing. A flat head screwdriver might be required to pry the batteries out.
- The new batteries will be placed in the given slot, it is advised that the user should pay attention to the positive and negative ends of the batteries while placing the new batteries.
- The last step is to place the wall housing back on the wall mount plate. This is done by keeping the housing and the screw block aligned and then sliding it on until it fits into its place.
