Question about Honeywell Programmable Thermostat Heater

Honeywell thermostat....Home cooling/heating system....Chromotherm III

When we put the thermostat to heat, it only blows cool air. However when we set the thermostate to EMT HEAT, the warm air DOES blow out.  What does EMT Heat switch mean and what is the difference between it and the regular heat switch? Why does one blow out heat and the other does not??

Any thermostat that connects to anything independent can be difficult to troubleshoot. Not only do you have to check that unit for trouble, you have to make sure it's not getting a strange signal from elsewhere. I really love the convenience of home automation but it can create a network of issues. Best to call customer support so their techs can troubleshoot it.

Your best bet is to call one of us certified techs to check this problem the problem could be that the compressor is not coming on. Most heat pumps are already in the heat mode with the reversing valve disengaged. And energize when in the cooling mode

    The reason your feeling heat in the emergency setting is it is g heat from the heat strips that are there for the purpse of compressor failure

    On a heat pump, the electric is a back up heat or supplementary heat, as the outdoor temperature goes down so does the capacity of your heat pump. At some point usually below 35 to 40 degrees your heat pump capacity has drop below its ability to heat your house. That is when the back up heat comes on to supplement the heat pump to bring your house back up to your comfort setting. It also serves as a back up to heat the house when your heat pump or compressor quits or if the defrost board locks your heat pump out do to a failure.

On heat pumps, the normal setting is simply an air conditioner working in reverse. The EMT or AUX heat is a supplemental heating system using electric heating elements instead of the hermetic (compressor) system. As far as why the regular heat does not work it can be one of many things. low freon charge. reversing valve not functioning. The defrost cycle not working. Take your pick. you may want to call a service man to repair it as the electric (EMT) is not as efficient.

Many thermostats have battery backup as well as the 24 volt ac. Have you replaced the batteries to see if it fixes all of your issues at once?

SOURCE: round honeywell thermostat

Sounds like you have a T86 thermostat...take the round front cover off to view the Mercury switch. Watch the bulb when you change the temperature to a higher setpoint. If the bulb makes contact when rotating it up, and the furnace doesn't go into a call for heat, then it could be the thermostat, wiring, or furnace problem.

My Honeywell thermostat isnt keeping my house cool even though the temp is set to 69. Currently 90 degrees in here


Its probably not the thermostat. The air conditioner may be stuck on heating mode. If its a reverse cycle, the reversing valve may be jammed so even when the thermostat is calling for cold air, it stays on heat. If the machine is on heating mode, it should be blowing cold air out of the outdoor unit of the air con. If its on cooling mode, the outdoor should be blowing hot air.

Honeywell thermostat blows cold air on heat


Thermostats don't actually blow anything, the heating system might though. Check the breakers for your heat system, then call a heating specialist. They're really not that expensive.

Amana PGD60C1152E no heat


Your thermostat Function 0170 must be set to "1" for Single Stage Heat/Cool. Function 0180 must be set for "0" for Heating Fan Control. Function 0240 must be set for "5" for the Heating Cycle Rate for your <90% Gas Furnace. If you have already done these steps or if, after doing these steps, you continue to experience a problem, you problem could be with your Gas Furnace. I'm including some links for information on your system and thermostat that include wiring diagrams.

Heat pump that just blows cool air


is the condenser operating? what is the outdoor temperature? A heat pump is a cooling system with a reverse gear, most reversing valves which make this possible fail to the heat mode so it is not likely to be the problem. You should have either gas or electric back-up heat. If you switch to emergency heat do you get warm air? Really need to find out more to make an informed guess at your problem, the simple stupid would be is the circuit breaker to the condensing unit possibly tripped or shut off?

We have a Honeywell Chromotherm III thermostat and it has an error message "-AC". No fan, AC, heat, etc. Any ideas?


I almost think you have no power source to the thermostat as if the power is off to the air handler unit (furnace), or the 24 volt transformer is bad. Could well be that the error codes are being powered by the battery.
