Question about Honeywell CT87B ROUND HEATING&COOLING MECHANICAL THERMOSTAT - WHITE Heater
I just bought a house and my furnace does not heat the house to the temperature. set at 70 it heats to 75 Warren in Ohio
Are you saying that the temperature over-shoots it's setting by 5 degrees? If so and if the thermostat has an inticipator device in it you can adjust it. After removing the cover on the thermostat, look for a little brass triangle on the lower right hand side. There will be a scale with numbers on it and they are very hard to see. This device heats up prior to shutting off the thermostat so it will not over-shoot by more than a few degrees. Move the brass triangle either up or down and let the heater cycle a few times. If the temperature swing gets worse, go the other way next time.
If the thermostat is not heat inticipated, there will be a small "Dip" switch where you can adjust to a specific degree of under-shoot.

Setting a thermostat has nothing to do with outdoor temperature, but more to do with what is a comfortable setting for you and your utility bill.
A common misconception associated with thermostats is that a furnace works harder than normal to warm the space back to a comfortable temperature after the thermostat has been set back, resulting in little or no savings. This misconception has been dispelled by years of research and numerous studies. The fuel required to reheat a building to a comfortable temperature is roughly equal to the fuel saved as the building drops to the lower temperature. You save fuel between the time that the temperature stabilizes at the lower level and the next time heat is needed. So, the longer your house remains at the lower temperature, the more energy you save.
Another misconception is that the higher you raise a thermostat, the more heat the furnace will put out, or that the house will warm up faster if the thermostat is raised higher. Furnaces put out the same amount of heat no matter how high the thermostat is set; the variable is how long it must stay on to reach the set temperature.
In the winter, significant savings can be obtained by manually or automatically reducing your thermostat's temperature setting for as little as four hours per day. These savings can be attributed to a building's heat loss in the winter, which depends greatly on the difference between the inside and outside temperatures. For example, if you set the temperature back on your thermostat for an entire night, your energy savings will be substantial. By turning your thermostat back 10 to 15 degrees for 8 hours, you can save about 5 to 15 percent a year on your heating bill -- a savings of as much as 1 percent for each degree if the setback period is eight hours long.
Hope this helps..........
