I woke up this morning and my thermostat which looks like a pocket calculator was just turned along with my furnace. I pressed both buttons and it turned back on, but my house was freezing cold. When it turned back on all of the segments on the display lit up first, and after that it worked as expected.
When I lived in places before I always had analog thermostats and never had them flake out like this one; the time wasn’t even set when it came back of because apparently it doesn’t keep the time; maybe the power went out and caused this, but I’m ultimately I don’t have any evidence of this.
Has anyone had experience with a thermostat like this, do I just need to buy a new one?
Anyway, I guess it turns on and off when bumped because the batteries aren’t held in place terribly well.
Also, to your point there isn’t much connecting it to the furnace, just two wires from plugged into a MOFSET that the thermostat plugs into via pins.
