Question about Heating & Cooling

I have a set-back number on my thermostat

I have a carrier central air conditioning system and the previous owner set the thermostats to a ''set back'' of 75 degrees and no matter what we do, it keeps going back to 75 degrees and my electric bill was huge. How can I change or clear the set backs?

    The thermostat is by Carrier and it says VVT on it. I hope that is the info you needed.

The easiest way with a programmable t-stat which i assume it is, is to set the temp you want then press the hold button, otherwise if it isn't held at that temp at different times of the day the t-stat will resume its programming schedule.

Put new batteries in the thermostat. Make sure that the switch that power the furnace is in the "on" position. Sometimes people mistake that switch for a light switch and turn it off.

What does -AC on honeywell chronotherm III thermostat mean?


AC means "air conditioning." If the AC icon is showing on your thermostat it means that your air conditioning is activated and should come on when the temperature threshold you've set on the thermostat is reached.

For example, if you've set the temperature level to 78 degrees, when the house temperature goes above 78, usually by about two degrees, the air conditioner should cycle on to cool it back down to 78 degrees at which point it will then turn off.


This information should be in your air conditioning/heating system or thermostat owners manual. If you don't have the manual, you should contact your air conditioning dealer or your builder to secure a replacement. The manual is essential for proper operation and maintenance of your system.

You should not have the blower fan running if all thermostats are set as you say. You either have a relay problem in the air handler or the zone system wiring or controller is defective.

Furnace runs on heat, air conditioner does not


If you have a Gas furnace in the Attic then the answer is yes. The outside condenser will not run if in fact you have a gas furnace.

Central air


Most thermostats have a setting for the fan called, "manual". That keeps the fan on continuously. The electronic thermostats can fail in a "fan on" condition. That would require a new thermostat. I also saw one air conditioner with a fan relay welded "on" by electrical surge. That would require a new relay.

Air Conditioner malfunction


Hi, Sounds like you have a short in the control circuit to me. Turn off all power going to the unit. Write down or otherwise mark the wires leaving the control board going to the thermostat. Remove them from the control board. Replace the fuse. Turn power back on and see if the fan still runs. If it does, check and or replace the heat limit switch that brings the fan on during the heat cycle. It may just need adjusted. If the fuse blows, I would think that the control board is probably bad. If it doesn't blow, Remove the thermostat. Leaving all thermostat wires open check them with an Ohm meter. There should be no continuity between them. Twist all the wires together at one end and ohm them again at the other end. You should have complete continuity on all wires. If the wiring checks out, down power the unit. Double check your wire colors and rewire the control board. With all wires open at the thermostat, turn the power back on. Touch the RED wire to the YELLOW wire. The Condensing unit should come on. Touch the RED wire to the GREEN wire. The fan should come on. Touch the RED wire to the WHITE wire. The heat should come on. Down power the unit. Replace the thermostat. Test unit. If the fuse has lasted ok but blows now it is either wired wrong at the Thermostat or the thermostat is bad. I hope I have helped. NOTE: If you can not understand these instructions. Call a licensed Heating / Air conditioning company. kstfas
