furnace thermostat battery
The furnace thermostat battery is often one of the most overlooked and underestimated parts of a heating system. It is surprisingly easy to replace these batteries but sometimes it just falls under the radar.
A furnace thermostat battery is installed on most heating systems and can typically last for around eight years before requiring replacement.
Thermostat batteries typically last 10-15 years. If you have recently replaced your thermostat but the old one is still running, then you should check your furnace battery. It is important that the furnace battery doesn’t die before a replacement can be done.
How to fix: There are a few ways to fix a dead thermostat battery. You can purchase a new one, remove and replace the old one or purchase an extension cord for operating cords with an amp meter that will tell you if there are any outlets with amps over 10 amps.
We just had to replace our gas furnace at my house last month, but our old thermostat was still running fine when we went back to school this fall. That’s when we found out that our deep-cycle RV battery wasn’t dead–it was dead on account of our old stove’s ash bucket overflowing and shorting.
