Question about Hunter Fan Company 5/1/1 Programmable Thermostat
We heat with gas so when I got my December electric bill, it was outrageous. We had the Hunter 44155C digital thermostat installed in late summer by a licensed electrician we had used for years. At first, I had problems programming it. I had it set on 72 and it was 79 in our house. We were burning up in August. I thought I was programming it wrong. So we dealt with it for a few weeks. Then the weather cooled and I didn't notice any problems with the temperature. When I changed it to heat, we had no problem heating the house. Only when we received our December electric bill, did I start to be concerned. Our electric rates had gone up, so ... Then after 3 months of outrageous electric bills, I went to our electric office and had them come and they discovered that our air conditioning AND our heat were both running at the same time. And they had been since we had the Hunter 44155C
digital thermostat installed. That explained why it was so hot at first and why our electric bills were so high. Our compressor had been running at the same time as our heat. We had the thermostat removed and replaced it with our old one. Everything seems to be back to normal now. Has anyone else had this problem? I was wondering if there had been any recalls on this or if I just got a bum one?
There should be a switch on the thermostat.
And another switch
Normally, you just set it for heat or AC and set the fan for auto. If it isn't wired correctly, the switches won't make any difference. It will either run all of the time or not at all.
