Honeywell thermostat adjustment

We heat the upstairs of our home with wood. The downstairs, which is unoccupied, is heated to only 50° with oil-fired baseboard hot water. It seems like the heat is coming on WAY too often. We have an old, round Honeywell thermostat, and I know there's a way to adjust the cut in/cut out on that unit by moving a sliding pointer towards the bottom of the unit. What's the best setting, given that nobody uses the space? (Sorry, there was no heating category so I chose stove)

The little pointer is called an anticipator, and it is just that. It anticipates how long to wait before coming back on. It has little numbers on it, hopefully you can read them. like .5 will wait 1/2 minute at that temp. before coming back on. It sounds like a high setting is what you are looking for, so a long time setting will be what you want, and if you haven't already figures it out, sliding the pointer is how to change the setting.

My upstairs temperature is 80 degrees and the downstairs is 69 Honeywell focus pro th6000 is set at 69. Why is the upstairs so drastically hot?unit is located upstairs& thermostat is downstairs


if there is no control of air movement between floors and you have it on cooling then any cold air will go down to the lower floor
or alternately if you have it set on heating all the hot air will rise to the upper floor
where is the system located (upstairs or down stairs ) and where is the thermostat located
to get control close any upstairs to down stairs doors or erect a heavy curtain across the stair well

Not enough heat


Take an Amp draw on all heaters and compare. If within 5%, they are working fine but you may have more open area downstairs than up.

I have 2 Thermostat's in my home. My heat works well upstairs but not downstairs. My thermostat downstairs won't come on but I unhooked the thermostat from downstairs and tried it upstairs and it worked...


Hi, sounds like you determined the problem is not with the thermostat. That leaves the furnace that serves downstairs. What type heating system do you have?

Carrier thermostat reading stuck on 50 but doesn't work


If it is Carrier tstat. Some have resets other dont. Kill power to insid unit. WAit five minutes turn back on. If it has batteries take them out. But the storm may have damaged the tstat. I had a thunderstorm damage 11 tstats in one building. You can buy a tsta at Home depot that will work and they are easy to wire. Just make sure you get the coorect tstat. If the unit is straight cool electric thats the easy one. A heat pump you need a Tsta with two stage heat one stage cool. You can pick one up for about 25 to 30 dollars. Please call back for more help be glad to assist.Rusty

Heating blowing coo air downstairs and warm upstairs?


Some of this depends on where the air handler/furnace is located. Most often in two story houses, it's in the attic upstairs, or in a closet upstairs. A duct routes air from the furnace to the downstairs supply duct, so it is a distance from the air handler.
When the unit first initiates a heating cycle, that duct is going to be full of cool air, and the duct itself will be cool. So the furnace has to run long enough to push the cool air out, as well as warm the duct up, before your going to feel warm air at the registers downstairs.

Keep in mind, heat rises. And, your thermostat only monitors the immediate area where it's located. In your case, upstairs.
Two story houses are problematic because of this. And one way around it is to have a damper system installed that distributes the air upstairs or downstairs based on a thermostat located in those spaces. There would be 2 dampers, and 2 thermostats (one upstairs, one downstairs). Each stat would control a damper, and the call for heat or cooling.

Let me know if you would like to consider a system like this, and I can point you to components to use. I've put several system like this in.
