Question about Honeywell Focus 6300B 5-2 Days Programmable Thermostat Heater

1 Answer

First floor of house is cold

I have forced hot air and one thermostat on the second floor. The first floor of my house is close to 10 degrees colder than the second. I had my furnace looked at and was told it was fine and all of the ducts and vents are fine as well.
The probelm is the great difference in heat. I have to set the thermostat to 80 on the second floor to get 71 in my LR and 65 in the kitchen (and it is an open floor plan so it does not make sense the 4 degree difference on the same floor).
Any help would be appreciated.

The thermostat will turn your furnace on and off to satisfy the temperature setting at the location where the thermostat is located. If you move the thermostat to the first floor and set the thermostat at say seventy, it should keep the furnace on until the temperature near the thermostat hits seventy degrees.

Tip

Free heat from your own furnace


to greatly increase the efficiency of all forced air heating systems use aluminum duct tape and tape all joints in the ductwork The hot air ducting from the furnace right to the register in the floor or walls should be air tight to keep heat from escaping .Also the cold air returns and all associated ducting should be taped at all joints to ensure maximum air flow . Taping all ducting will not only provide more heat to all rooms of your house it will also produce less dust from leaking cold air ducting which sucks in air and dust from areas typically not cleaned (wall and floor cavities) . I did this in my older home and found I had to close off some registers because of the huge increases of volume which provided extra heat volume for the rooms that needed it.The house is now consistantly warm in all parts

Lasko 5141 - I set the temp to hold @ 68 degrees at night but it seems to ignore the setting and gets into the high 70's. This is with the rotation switch on if that makes a difference. Any Help ? Thanks


Remember it is always colder at the floor level, the heater is pretty close to temp when it is above 40 degrees outside, but as the temperature gets colder outside so does the temperature at the floor level in your house because heat rises.

I use my house furnace thermostat mounted half way up the wall as a guide, When the temp outside is in the teens, I have seen as much difference between the floor temp on the heater and the wall to be 4-6 degrees different. So this means as the tempurature outside drops you need to regulate the thermostat on the heater downward to compensate for the colder floor temperatures.

MY UNDER FLOOR HEATING IS WORKING , BUT ALL OF A SUDDEN THE ROOMS HAVE ALL GONE COLD AND THE HOT WATER ONLY RUNS HOT FOR ABOUT TEN SECONDS HELP!!!


Hi, It sounds to me that you have a floor furnace that is working, but you have hot water set-up for the rest of the house. You say the water stays hot for about 10 minutes only? Is it on a hot water heater or small boiler with a circulating pump? If this is how it is set up, It sounds as though what ever is heating the water to the rest of the house is shutting off to soon, or if you have a pump, it may have failed. If you do have a pump that has failed, they are set - up to shut the heating system down if it were to fail. Please check to see what set-up you have and get back to me asap, so that I can solve this for you. Check these things out I have Mentioned to you and let me know.
Sincerely,

Thermostat temperatures not reaching preset Energy Star settings


Well with a boiler system like you have it will cost you more money to heat your house that way than if you leave it like it is. With a boiler system it takes a lot longer to heat an area than with a furnace. The best thing you can do is find a happy medium and leave it there at all times. If you read the paper work on your new thermostats they have a set procedure which tells the thermostat if you have forced air or boiler system. Do you have baseboard or in-floor heat how many zones do you have.

Heater turns on, but intermittenly


Turn the power to the furnace off and then back on and see if it resets. If not you may have a bad ignitor or dirty sensor.
Hope this helps.

Thermostat problem ?


If you start by looking on your gas valve, you should find the correct amperage to set the heat anticipator at. I am not sure if you have a forced hot water system or a steam system, but depending on the case, you may also have a second problem, which is easily addressed. If you have forced hot water, the upstairs baseboard/radiators may be airbound and need to be bleed. If you have steam, you may need to slow down the downstairs valves, and open the upstairs valves to get a balance. Hope this helps
