Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

My apartment honeywell a/c is on full crank at 90 degrees on "heat". It doesn't feel warm at all, though it's been on for hours. I have a new filter in, as well. Also, "fan" and "auto" are other controls on this honeywell a/c unit, I'm not certain for sure what that means in detail and how it can save me money.

The "Fan on/auto" switch is desighned to give you the option of running the fan constantly, which continuosly filters the air in gives circulation.

It does not effect the heat or cool modes of the unit. All it does is effect the fan.

On the "Auto" setting, the fan will only come on when the unit is calling for heat, or cooling.

This will save a little bit of electricity, but will not continuosly circulate or filter the air.

What was the temperature inside tha apartment when you first set the T-stat on 90?
What is it now? if it is still climbing and it started out very low, it may just be working fine.

If not, you could have other problems, like low refridgerant (if it's a heat pump) or bad insulation on a very cold night or an undersized unit.

Has it been working properly before or have you just moved in/turned it on?

Just moved into an apartment with a Honeywell RTH111B. When I got here it was 75, five hours later it's still 75 even though I set it for 68. Any hope I can get to a comfortable (for me) temp?


Temp depends upon ur action of opening and closing door frequently and also depends on your system whether filters are cleaned or not. Plz check.

How do I connect a 24v damper motor with 6 colored wires red white yellow green blue black to NO COM NC terminals.


Choose two colors of the thermostat wire, and connect them to the NO and COM and connect them to the zone control board leads for the zone intended. Almost all zone valves spring return open when deenergized. So ensure the zone valve is open with the system is off. At the base of zone valve there is a set screw that needs to engage the damper valve shaft in the open position with the motor in the spring release position. Most zone valve are 90 degree moment from full open to full shut. If you have a Carrier zone valve, they go full open to full shut in 45 degrees of motion. Your open stop need to be set so the valve stops in the full stop position.
To help understand the operation of a zone system, say you have 2 zone system and zone 1 thermostat initiates a heat or cool demand. Zone 2 valves energizes and shuts and zone 1 stays open and allow air to heat/ cool zone 1. If zone 2 thermostat simultaniously initiates the same heat/cool demand, the zone 2 valve opens and both zone heat/cool. When either thermostat is satisfied the opposite zone valve closes and when both thermostat are satisfied both zone valves open.
Hope this helps you understand zone operation. The same works for higher multizone systems.

My a/c unit has a energy saver mode but the machine hasn't turned off at all for the past two days and our apartment doesn't even feel like the temperature it's set to be at which is 65...


I dont know what the temp is outside where you are ... but if you are asking for 65 that is a big request for a window unit. Typically, you can expect to get 20 degrees lower inside than outside ... 65? That is a lot to ask. It will not shut off until it gets to the requested temp.

Central heat does not blow hot air, just warm air weakly


Sounds like some of the elements are not working. You being in Florida they may not have put very many elements in. It was 61 degrees last week. I know because I'm a Dolphin Fan. You will need a current sensing meter to check the elements.

Thermostat location on York Diamond 90 gas furnace


Augold, sometimes its best to set the thermostat where you "feel comfortable" . I.E. set it and leave it til you feel the need to be cooler or warmer.

A thermometer on a thermostat will not always be accurate and setting it will only get it within 2 to 5 degrees which is enough to "feel".

Now from the stand point of is it working properly????

Assume you feel comfortable and the heat stays on to keep you comfortable is their anything wrong with this? I assume this is the goal. Even if it says 90 (and you know its not 90) and your comfortable you could leave it alone and be OK. If this kind of thing is whats bothering you a new thermostat may not be much better, unless your ready to invest in one and accept it however it should be closer to the place youd set it. Id recommend an electronic type they are more accurate and level doesn't matter so much to these types.

If you want to set the temperature and are determined to go by a thermometer to "feel Comfortable" I recommend you buy an electronic thermometer and set it close by the thermostat. Make sure you have no lamps or other heat sources close to the thermostat area.
Remember the far end of a room or a chair by a window Especially with little or no curtains and on the prevailing out door wind will always feel colder and be colder than the area by the thermostat even if both are in the same room. If your too cold try running the thermostat up a few degrees. If too warm set it lower. The equipment doesn't care how cold or warm it is.You will not increase your utility bills to the national debt by being comfortable

If this helps please grade me accordingly and Good Luck.
