Overshoot and undershoot are characteristic of the way thermostats work.

How do I reset the temp my heat pump switches from electric to gas. It runs much more economically on electri than on propane. The thermostat is a Honeywell th8000. Code 350 setting I believe. Thanks


Heatpumps are more complex than an AC unit. Yes, there is a difference between a heatpump and an air conditioner. Where the real difference lies is out side in the condenser unit. There's a defrost board out in the unit, and depending on the brand and model, one of the wires will need to be changed so that the gas furnace will not come on. The problem with this, heatpumps use the heat that is available from the outdoors and transfers it to indoor. When the temps outside drop below 50 degrees, there's not enough latent heat to transfer, thus calling the propane furnace to operate. Without the addition of the furnace, you will not be able to heat the area properly. The only way to remedy this, is to remove the propane furnace and replace it with an electric airhandler with a heat strip for "emergency heat". The emergency heat term is used when the temps drop below the temps I mentioned above and calls for the heat strips to come on.

Am I able to adjust the 'hysteresis' of my digital thermostat?


Some thermostats allow you to change the differential value - that is how far below the heating (or above the cooling) set point before calling for heat (or cooling in the case of air conditioning). The built in 1 degree differential setting provides the most even temperature in the space at the expense of more frequent furnace firing and stopping. Many people prefer this mode as opposed to allowing wider swings in temperature for less frequent furnace firing and stopping. If you wish to change this setting, you'll need to replace the thermostat as it is not user adjustable in this model.

I install 2 new honeywell non programmable thermostats. The temp never reaches the setting temp. Always 5 to 8 degrees off. I can not get the furnace to heat the home over 70 degrees. Even set at 80. Any...


If the furnace is cycling on and off and not reaching temp there is a problem in the control circuit. If the thermostat is not satisfied the furnace should be running without shutting off in which case the capacity of the furnace is inadequate because of size or problems reducing the capacity. This could be caused by an increase in home size, poor air flow (dirty filter, loose fan belts, fan running slow, obstructions in the duct), dirty heat exchanger or burner, reduced gas flow, over temperature switch bad causing the burner to shut off early, or a few more technical reasons. You may do well to call a technician to troubleshoot this problem.

I have a RTH2310 and it ran ok with A/C all summer but does not turn on the furnace now


The furnace may not be getting power. It could have been turned off when switched over from heating to cooling.

I checked the model #'s and they should interchange just fine. Double check your wiring. On the thermostat Red to Rc (which should also be jumped to Rh), White to W, Green to G, and Yellow to Y. Move T-stat controls from current position to oposite end and back to what you want to run ie. A/C if thats what you want. Move fan control to on and back to auto. (I find this eliminates some close but not quite right settings). This should work. If not look in furnace to verify how it is wired. Any colors that do not match the above will be your corrective action to do at the thermostat. if necessary change t-stat wires at t-stat to match what is in the furnace.

We have a fairly new furnace. I have the temp set at 65 the furnace only runs for 3 min at a time and comes on every 5 min. This sounds extreme to me?


It depends on the differential that you have programmed into the thermostat. In most of them you can set the temperature you want the thermostat to activate, and then you set the run differential such as three degrees below 65. In other words, the thermostat will activate at 62, and drive the temperature up to 65, cut off and wait for the temperature to drop to 62, where it cuts on again. see:

Your differential is set to close you can go into tstat and change differential setting. Your install manual for your thermostat will tell you how you can set 1.2.3 degrees differential

Honeywell RTH2310 thermostat temp variance


Hi,
Yes you can change that by change the number of cycles per hour that your t-stat looks from for youe furnace. Lower the cycles per hour number and it will increase the range.

You can see how to do it here

need to make sure there is a jumper between RC and RH if the red wire is connected to the RC terminal the heat wont work you will need a jumper wire to tie the RC and RC together with the red wire.
