This flame symbol means the thermostat is sending a signel to turn on and maintain heat untill set temp is met then it would shut off and the symbol will go away! (heat is running!) even though your heat is no longer working the thermostat is still sending it a signel!
I hope this helps you!

Hi this is mr.grzz, well to answer your question, the little icon on your t-stat that shows a little flame means that your t-stat is calling for heat, there in lies the problem your t-stat is doing what it is supossed to do, your problem lies with the furnace, it could be a nuber of things wrong, but first and formost, try turning the power off to the furnace at the breaker panel, wait for about 30 seconds, then turn the power back on, this resets the circuit board, see if that will help your furnace to run, but there is a reason behind why your furnace failed, if this does the trick, then great, if not please fell free to come back and let us know what the furnace is doing after it trys to start up, thanks for your question, hope that helps, mr.grzz

Air Conditioner SEER Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio


Energy consumption for home air conditioning accounts for almost 5% of all the electricity produced in the USA. Energy Policy Act mandates minimum energy efficiency standards for commercial buildings, using research and standards developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers. Energy Star qualified central air conditioners have a higher seasonal efficiency rating (SEER) than standard models, which makes them about 14% more efficient than standard models. Energy efficiency specialists with certified training on retrofits and energy savings on both residential and light commercial units may enable you to save up to 50 percent on your air conditioning bills with the use of a high efficiency energy system. Substantial energy savings can be obtained from more efficient systems.

SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) is related to the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER), which is the ratio of output cooling in Btu/Hr and the input power in watts W at a given operating point and also to the coefficient of performance (COP) commonly used in thermodynamics. SEER rating more accurately reflects overall system efficiency on a seasonal basis and EER reflects the system’s energy efficiency at peak day operations.

The SEER rating is the Btu of cooling output during a typical cooling-season divided by the total electric energy input in watt-hours during the same period. SEER is related to the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER), which is the ratio of output cooling in Btu/Hr and the input power in watts W at a given operating point and also to the coefficient of performance (COP) commonly used in thermodynamics. SEER rating more accurately reflects overall system efficiency on a seasonal basis and EER reflects the system’s energy efficiency at peak day operations. The higher the SEER number, the greater the efficiency of your unit. Therefore you will realize greater energy savings. The higher efficiency your product, the lower your long-term energy costs will be. Both central AC and air source heat pumps are rated according to seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER).

Before you consider upgrading your cooling equipment, the cheapest way to save money and energy from cooling is to reduce the need for mechanical air conditioning in the first place. Ask your contractor about a variable speed air handler, which will improve comfort and efficiency and allow continuous air filtering at minimum energy cost. Also, because ducts are often responsible for a lot of wasted energy, make sure you hire a contractor who knows about high-efficiency installations. If your central air conditioning unit is more than 12 years old, replacing it with an Energy Star qualified model could cut your cooling costs by 30 percent.

Honeywell DT200 thermostat is not responding to any buttons pressed. Display is showing small flame icon on left of screen and what looks like a battery in top right hand corner. Any suggestions?


The thermostat is calling for heat, and the battery icon means that the batteries are low and should be replaced. If the thermostat is wired to run on battery power alone, replacing the batteries usually corrects this problem. Hope this helps! Jim

Honeywell Chronotherm III Thermostat shows time of day-AC. No heat in the 2 zones with this message.


Hello,Message AC means that there is no 24volt power to the thermostat from the unit/s it controls.Please check all switches & curcit breakers to the unit/s as there is no low voltage power to the thremostat from the transformer in the unit/s.Maybe got turned off by mistake.

My honeywell timer for the back boiler heating is blank


need to contact the people who worked on it yesterday to come back and look at it again because it sounds like you have no power to now.

Blinking red light no heat


It sounds like you are actually in lock out. Recycle is when during a call for heat, the flame goes out, the unit will try to restart itself. Hope this helps

Fire will ignite showing flames but will not stay alight.


Turn off the gas. Remove the unit. Disconnect the thermocouple and pilot assembly. Clean the white powdery stuff out of the pilot assembly. Reconnect and try again.
If that does not do it you will have to replace the pilot/thermocouple assembly.

My central heating system comprises a worcester bosch system boiler and honeywell smartfit controls. The problem I am having is that the central heating doesn't seem to knock off at the preset temperature...


You could possibly have an ignition problem. The controller will go into a lock-out condition if flame is not established. Turning the temperature control down and then back up may be serving to reset the control system so it tries again.
