Why do my thermostat’s batteries drain so quickly?

Equipment | Thermostat | Troubleshooting

If your thermostat’s batteries drain too quickly, there could be a few different reasons:

  • Verify you’re using the recommended batteries. Guardian recommends name brand such as Energizer, Duracell, or Panasonic alkaline batteries.
  • Ensure the batteries have not reached their expiration date. 
  • Your thermostat will use more battery power when the Z-Wave network connection is poor.
