Furnace-not heating all rooms to set temperature

My thermostat is set at 70. I check it with a thermometer. It is accurate, I go to my living room and check the temperature. It tells me it is 64 degrees. Can you please help me. I have had the furnace checked several times. The filter is clean and so is the furnace. Please help.

Depending on where your living room is in comparison to your furnace it could be just that the fan doesn’t have enough force to get it there so what is happing is that all the other air is reaching other rooms before it. There are products that can help with this u can find them at larger hardware stores they r inline fans that go in the ductwork or there r a flat type of fan that mounts on the vent and plugs into a wall outlet that will pull the air to that room the latter would be much easier but it is your choice. Hope this helps.

My thermostat showing on screen 76F when really room temperature is 70F and I HAVE MEASURED PROPER room sensor resistance OHMS to real room temperature. Why thermostat showing higher temperature and n

Where is the thermostat in relation to the return? Is there air flow or is the air stagnant in the area of the thermostat. Have you placed a thermometer in varios locations where the thermostat is located? Try these locations and see if the thermostat needs to be placed in a location better able to reflect room temperature. Also how long have you lived in the house? If it is a newer home I suggest that you contact the builder or the air conditioner/heater installer to see if they have a schematic of the placement of the thermostats.

Hotpoint ew81n cooker. Non working oven thermostat has been replaced. The cooker temperature is hotter than the dial reading. What can I adjust to make them the same?

Unfortunately, the oven thermostat is non adjustable.
However, it is normal for oven temperatures to vary by + or - 10% of the setting.
This is acceptable, so to compensate, set the temp 10% less of the required temp setting.
Make sure you have the sensor fitted correctly inside the oven compartment
Make sure that the thermometer is accurate if you are checking the temperature with one.

My fridge does not seem cold. Temperature in freezer is fine.

The cooler side is serviced by blower vents in the back top and bottom of the refridgerator. In some the lower portion has a movable vane blocker so that you can adjust the "meat keeper" colder. Check to see if those air inlets are being blocked by jars etc. The thermostat operates the blower, so you will have to check if your thermostat is working. you can use a thermometer and set your thermostat up or down and see if the difference is registered on the thermometer. a room thermometer will do nicely. This will check to see if your thermostat is fairly correct.

Thermastat is reading colder than the actual temperature of the room

Your question is phrased a little odd.

1) If when you say 'thermostat' - you are actually talking about a 'temperature reading' on your thermostat - then I would tell you to just get another temp measuring device and double-check the temp.

2) if howerver you are talking about the set-point of your thermostat - for example - you might have it set on 70 degrees and the room temperature is 78 - then I would say that the AC is not big enough to pull the temp down to 70 in the room, or, you have a problem with the AC that does not allow the unit to pull the temp down.

good luck!

Honeywell Thermostat RTH7400D

The thermostat will not cut off the A/C until the thermometer reading gets to 76.

If there is not a heat source near/behind the thermostat which is causing the thermometer to read higher than actual room temperature, it sounds like the thermostat thermometer is out of calibration.

There are ways to calibrate it, but much to involved to go into here.

One solution is to just set the thermostat at 80, knowing that it's really set on 76.

Another solution is to replace the thermostat.

Thermostat location on York Diamond 90 gas furnace

Augold, sometimes its best to set the thermostat where you "feel comfortable" . I.E. set it and leave it til you feel the need to be cooler or warmer.

A thermometer on a thermostat will not always be accurate and setting it will only get it within 2 to 5 degrees which is enough to "feel".

Now from the stand point of is it working properly????

Assume you feel comfortable and the heat stays on to keep you comfortable is their anything wrong with this? I assume this is the goal. Even if it says 90 (and you know its not 90) and your comfortable you could leave it alone and be OK. If this kind of thing is whats bothering you a new thermostat may not be much better, unless your ready to invest in one and accept it however it should be closer to the place youd set it. Id recommend an electronic type they are more accurate and level doesn't matter so much to these types.

If you want to set the temperature and are determined to go by a thermometer to "feel Comfortable" I recommend you buy an electronic thermometer and set it close by the thermostat. Make sure you have no lamps or other heat sources close to the thermostat area.
Remember the far end of a room or a chair by a window Especially with little or no curtains and on the prevailing out door wind will always feel colder and be colder than the area by the thermostat even if both are in the same room. If your too cold try running the thermostat up a few degrees. If too warm set it lower. The equipment doesn't care how cold or warm it is.You will not increase your utility bills to the national debt by being comfortable

If this helps please grade me accordingly and Good Luck.
