Don't know of anyway the filter could cause this. If the filter was bad (clogged), it would cause a rise in temp of the air while in the heat mode but the system should still cut off when the set temp (65) was reached.
Some of these t'stat's are programmable for 7 individual days. You may have to set the temps you want and then "Copy" them to the other 6 days. Read your instructions that came with it or, sometimes there are some brief instructions on the inside of the cover, if it has one.

The unit is on Heat, Fan Auto it's 36 degrees outside, Thermostate set on 73 Actual temp inside 70. Unit runs continuously. How can I get more heat. I tried Emergency heat and that doesn't help.


Have you cleaned the air return filters ? Wash them, don't vacuum or brush them. It damages the filter screen. Sometimes a thermostat will be out by a few degrees. If the filters are clean, try turning the temp down a bit to 65 degrees and see if the air con shuts down. ( If your room temp is showing 70, it should switch off the machine) If it doesn't turn off, keep reducing the temp by 5 degrees at a time and wait a few minutes each movement to see if and when it shuts down. If the machine keeps running, I would suggest your thermostat is shot and you will need a new one.

How do i adjust AC temperature variance on a Honeywell TH5220D1003 thermostat


If you are talking about the difference between heating mode and cooling mode and the room setpoint, you can not change it. It comes from the factory with a 3 degree difference. In other words if you raise the heat setpoint until it is within 3 degrees of the cooling setpoint, for every degree you raise the heat setpoint the cooling will raise a degree.
About all you can do is increase the distance between the heat and cooling setpoint. To do this either lower the cooling setpoint to 3 degrees higher than the heat setpoint you want and then increase the cooling setpoint the desired setting. For example heat and cool setpoints are 67 and 70 respectively, and you want 65 and 73. Lower the cooling setpoint to 68 and then raise the cooling setpoint to 73. Now your heating will come on 3 degress lower than 68, the 65 you wanted and cooling will come on at 73. Remember, the thermostat new setpoints will turn on the cooling at 75 and turn back off at 73 and heat will turn on at 63 and turn off at 65.
You can perform the same using the heating setpoint, just have to look at it backwards. If you need to lower the difference I recommend a 8000 series thermostat. They are the most functional thermostat that Honeywell makes, be in mind they are about 3 times more expensive and many of the setting require a well trained tech to interpret and set properly.
Hope this helps.

Trying to set temp on honeywell t-stat


I believe what your experiencing is the 75 degrees is the hold temp position...the display then reverts back to the actual room temperature...it doesn't mean the set temperature changed back to 65 degrees. Try to reprogram the thermostat schedules, and try not to use the hold function...just the temporary hold. (which is bumping the programmed temperature up or down until the next programmed period)

I have an existing honeywell thermostat - 4 wire hook up. I added a honeywell humidistat. I hooked it up for series operation meaning when we leave the house in south Florida for the summer, the humidstat...


That 's a really good idea. My question would be is that a two wire humidistat? If it is. you would have to parallel the wires. One wire on the "R" on the thermostat and the other would go on "Y" and jumper to "G". Really interesting , I would like to know if it works. I live in Okla. and we have real high humidity summers but probably not like Florida. Hope this helps you.

I have never used central ac before - how do I set it? If it is on 75 will that cool the house? If I want it cooler, do I put it lower? like 65?


As to your question 'will 75 cool the house?' The answer is 'yes' - if the outside temperature is low enough. Typically speaking you can expect your central AC to cool a properly insulated house to a down to a temperature of about 20-25 degrees lower than the outside temperature. For example - if the outside temp is 95 degrees. You could expect to get your house down to 70-75 degrees. If the outside temp is 110 degrees then you could only expect to get the house to 85 or 90 degrees.

So .. as you can see - your 'inside' temp will be directly affected by the 'outside' temperature.

As to the operation of central air; it is very simple.

I would suggest that you not pay 'too much attention' to what you have the thermostat set on. A comfortable temperature - is a personal thing - so - I would set it somewhere - say 72 and see how I (and others in the house) was handling that setting.

If you want it 'cooler' just 'notch' it down a degree or two - if you need it a little warmer - turn it up a degree or two. Do this "fine adjusting" till you have the temperature setting you are comfortable with.

Usually the more you can leave your thermostat alone the better off you will be from a comfort position and an electrical useage standpoint. Obviously, the higher you have your thermostat set the 'less' it will cost you on your electric bill.

How high you set the temperature is a balance you have to come to based on how comfortable you want to be - matched with how much you want to hold down the electric bill.

hope this helps

the thermostat controlling your unit likely has a window type of programming for digital or mechanical adjustment for older style thermostat that sets a minimum off temp and a maximum on temp, there may be an adjustment to set the range it operates at, otherwise you may have a defective thermostat controller unit and it needs replacing also insure that the temperature sensing element is clean and free of dust build-up and your filter is clean

Hi i have a room thermostat with 4 programs per day on it. in the book it doesn't say if program 2 & 4 are the off times and if 1 & 3 are the on times. the thermostat was bought from wolseley....


On and off is determined by what temperature you set each program for. Example: 6 am - 70 degrees, 8 am - 65 degree, 4 pm - 72 degrees, 11 pm - 65 degrees. You can set the thermostat to fit your schedule and temperature preferences.  Good luck.

Our thermostat is set at hold with the fan on auto. The house and cool temp is set at 75 degrees, yet the fan will stay on CONTINUOUSLY unless I manually take down the temperature OR the outside temp falls...


it is ok to run your fan continously. constant air filtering as long as it pauses before a/c cycles on. will not use any more electricity than a toaster. is there a fan programing feature on t-stat. if so you will need to turn programing to fan off
