You don't need to,just try not to short the wires together if you leave it powered,its only at 24 volts a.c./W=White/Y=Yellow/G=Green/R=Red where colored wires go on thermostat

My Honeywell Themostat is no longer controlling the systems after a battery change, but otherwise looks fine. Help!


The replacement batteries could be defective or installed incorrectly. Also, if the thermostat has to be removed from its mounting base for installation of replacement batteries, it may have been reinstalled incorrectly.

Programmable Honeywell


A Programmable Honeywell Thermostat is a great investment for you to make for your heating and cooling system. A Honeywell Thermostat will provide you with the best in comfort and dependability for many years.

Many people when they think of Honeywell Thermostats think of the old round T87 thermostat that has been one of the most common thermostats for years and years.

Today they have those thermostats in designer colors and they are still made and used in many situations. But the manual thermostat is quickly becoming a thing of the past. With the rising costs of fuel the Programmable Honeywell Thermostat is becoming more and more popular. Programmable Thermostat Honeywell is even one of the most popular searches when it comes to thermostats.

The VisionPro thermostat line has quickly become one of the leading digital programmable thermostats on the market to today. The ease of programming this thermostat and the touch screen interface has made it a very popular choice for many people. There is a variation of this thermostat for virtually any possibility that you can think of. The FocusPro line also is a very good choice at a bit less cost. There is a basic Pro line and also even a digital thermostat in the traditional round configuration. Both digital programmable and basic digital thermostats are available for line voltage control of electric heating.

Along with the thermostats you now are able to add remote outdoor sensors as well as install you thermostat in a remote place and run a sensor to the space you are controlling. For many years these capabilities were standard for commercial thermostats, but now they are a very real possibility for home use also. With an outdoor sensor these thermostats now have the capability to turn off your heat pump and start you backup heat a certain preset out door temperature. In the past many systems have been installed with complicated electronic to do what a thermostat can do very easily.

The Programmable Honeywell Thermostat has come a long ways in the past few years. The changes have made this thermostat capable of doing many unbelievable things. If you are looking to replace your old thermostat, carefully compare the many thermostats on the market and then pick the one that will meet your needs the best. For many the Honeywell digital thermostat will be the best choice, giving them great flexibility and reliability in one thermostat.

Why does my American Standard heat pump compressor and condenser fan run when I have the thermostat set to emergency heat?


It's possible the "brain" thinks it can still supply some heat. Other wise there is a wiring problem or thermostat switch problem. Installed recently? Never used emergency heat before? What is your emergency heat type, gas or electric? Are you sure they are working. If not the "brain" senses and uses the only source available: heat pump. Thermostat? probably Honeywell? If so call Mfg customer service. Warranty on thermostat or heat pump? If so call customer service. Call your installer.

Installed the Honeywell RTH2300/RTH221 but the old thermostat was removed by someone else. Since the original wires were not labeled, I simply attached them to the new thermostat by following the letters...


This appears to be a thermostat installation that was made without regard to wire code. The Honeywell material I have suggests it may be necessary to check connections at the furnace end and work back to the thermostat. There may be compatibility problems between the number of wires in the old installation and terminal connections in the new thermostat. Honeywell may be able to help at 1-800-468-1502.

Just installed the honeywell thermostat. the ac turns on, but not the heat. what do we do?


Some of the thermostats from Honeywell require a jumper wire on the thermostat between the RC and the RH connection for the heating to operate. It is possible that your installation needs this jumper wire installed for the heating to work.Verify that this jumper wire is installed if your thermostat requires it. If it requires the jumper wire and you do not have one you can cut a small piece of existing wire on the connections to make a jumper wire. There are also some thermostats with a jumper switch for electric heat and gas heat...make sure that it is on the proper setting.

Your red wire from the old R terminal goes to both the R and Rc terminal on the new stat. Other wires from old stat move to same terminal on new stat. You will not have any connections to the B or O terminal. Sounds like you probably already have it hooked up right though. This thermostat is what we call a power-stealing thermostat. It "steals" is power by running a trickle current to the transformer from the R terminal back through the W terminal. This meathod requires a standard resistive type thermal relay for the heating system. If you have an electronic type circuit board, many times they do not provide the proper type of connection for the thermostat to "steal" the necessary amount of power to run on. This is solved by installing a resistor from W to C in the furnace. If you have a standard electric furnace with thermal relays, then the problem is most likly the thermostat
