Question about Air Conditioners

1 Answer

I've got a Honeywell Environcare Elite filtration system on my furnace. How is the best way to clean these two units that slide into place and provide electrostatic cleaning? Can I soak in a laundry sink in some sort of cleaning mixture or do I pressure wash them or what? Thanks for your help, Russ

Honeywell Electronic Air Cleaners remove airborne particles as small as .03 Microns. To put that in perspective the smallest particle you can see with the human eye is 10 microns
Honeywell Electronic Air Cleaners have far more collection area to collect and store airborne particles than any other electronic air cleaner on the market.

Maintenance requires cleaning every two to three months. Located inside the unit are two pre-filters, which need to be rinsed off. The two electronic cells require a good rinse followed by washing them in your dishwasher.

Great for allergy sufferers.

This came from the link I provided below. Good luck.

Honeywell thermostat won't turn on


There could be a number of issues associated with this issue. #1 bad thermostat, #2 no low voltage from the furnace or air handler, #3 if gas furnace, no pilot(standing pilot units or bad ignition system). If you have a fan switch on the thermostat turn it to on and see if the blower comes on. I would also check to make sure the breaker is turned on. Over the years I have found many things that all have the end result you are seeing. I just named a few things you can try.

If aquastat wirings are ok, and control module had been set up properly, the the furnace should start.
Check if bypassing the control the furnace starts, if it starts then check aquastat wirings.
If it depends on the furnace, check the valve, the safety sensor and the ignitor.
Here is the guide to set up the Aquastat control:

How many filters does my unit have


If the A/C is in your furnace then your furnace filter takes care of filtration.

We are trying to install a HoneyWell programmable thermostat (model RTH6350) and the colors do not match up. We have an orange wire, blue wire and white wire without a connection. It says to wrap the O,...


T-stat wiring is commonly connected with the following color codes:

On a straight heat and cool system:
White = W on T-Stat
Yellow = Y on T-stat
Green = G on T-stat
Red = R on T-stat

On heat pump systems:
Blue = W2 on T-stat

There is no guarantee that your system is wired using this system so you will need to look in the furnace and see where the wires are connected to. You will have another set, probably 2 wires, going to your outside A/C unit. They are typically red and white but could be any color as long as they are hooked up to the same connections. I.E. blue on R at t-stat and to R on furnace would be OK, it just makes it harder to service the unit if you don't know what wire is for what.

Just check your furnace connections and connect the same wires to your t-stat no matter their colors.

You need to connect to the Y terminal and the C terminal for A/C unit. The best was is to connect thermostat to furnace and then connect the two wires to A/C off furnace circuit board at Y and C terminal.

Thermostat wiring


99.99% of the modern residential units use only one transformer to power the 24 volts for both the furnace and the a/c unit. It will be located in the furnace. The outdoor unit will not have its own transformer unless its reeallllly old. Place a small jumper wire between w1 & w2 terminals on the thermostat. (The lux brand is not the professionals choice) (if you have problems replace with a honeywell or white rodgers brand).
Good luck.....

Manual Thermostat replcaement with Programmable Digital unit.


Hopefully there are markings on the old t-stat as to what terminal is what.
on the honeywell 8000 use the heat pump labeling and then the standard wiring would be
R- red
AUX-white
Y- yellow
B- O/B
C- black
G- green
There should not be a bare wire, it probably just has the insulation stripped back way too far.
You should probably open the furnace and compare the terminal label in the furnace to the wire color. normally yellow and blue pass through the furnace and are wire nutted to wires going to the outdoor unit. In the furnace the white wire will connect to the w or w1 terminal. also, you will need to set the Honeywell stat to have the following parameters.
170-7
190-1
200-0
other parameters that I did not specify, you may read the manual and make your own decision but I recommend factory settings for the other parameters

Your "R" terminal is basically your "hot" and your "C" terminal is basically your "neutral" to simplify explanation. The Furnace supplies the "R" power to the thermostat and then depending on what wire the thermostat sends the power back on determines what the system does. The thermostat terminals are as follows "G" is fan, "W" or "aux" is elect heat, "Y" tells the outdoor unit to run, "O" or "B" tells the outdoor unit whether it is heating or cooling, and "E" is emergency heat. "G" should connect from the t-stat directly to the furnace and go no further. "W" or "aux" AND "E" should both connect to your "W" or "W1" terminal in the furnace, there should also be a "W" connection to the heat pump ( this allows the H/P to turn on the elect heat when the unit defrosts) "Y" and "O" or "B" may or may not connect to a terminal in the furnace, usually they just pass through the furnace from the t-stat to the H/P and get wire nutted in the furnace. Now, here is the key. As I mentioned previously "O" or "B", a system will only use one or the other. The entire industry (except for Rheem and Ruud) uses the "O" terminial which has 24v on it when you are cooling and no power when you are heating. Rheem and Ruud use the "B" terminal which is just backwards, 24v in heating and no power in cooling. This is all for a heat pump, If you do not have a heat pump, then disregard the references to "O", "B", "E", and "aux". You will have R-power on red wire, W-heat signal to furnace, G-fan signal to furnace, and "Y" cool signal to outdoor unit.
