Carrier Air Conditioner- not reaching set temperature

We have two thermostats, the one downstairs is set at 76 degrees. the temp is reading 78 and won't shut off unless we set it to 77. It has been doing this for the last couple of weeks. It is over 100 outside here in Texas. Do we need to have it checked???

If it is set to 76 degrees and its 78 in the house its working fine it is suppose to shut off once it reaches 76 but sometimes there is a 1 or 2 degree differential built ini would keep you filter clean and as long as it blows out cold air i wouldnt be to concerned most airconditioners need yearly cleanings though

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.

My Goodman unit won't cool below 78 degrees inside during this heatwave. The thermostat says


your home may not be insulated well enough or you could have leaking duct or your system may not be charged correctly ac systems are not sized to cool below 76 degrees above 90 degrees outdoors because this will increase your utility bills during the cooler temperatures. thank your governement and all the regulations we have to follow for this. they would rather you save money than be comfortable. and we are actually in violation of state law and federal law if we install a unit that will cool below 76 degrees on 90 degree outdoor temp

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!
