I replaced all of the contractor installed smoke detectors with First Alert Model P1210 detectors.


The replacement smoke detectors may have had low batteries when installed or the contractor-selected mounting locations may be wrong.

Thermostat does not reach programmed temperature


Have you checked with a thermometer to see if the area is reaching the temp you have it set at? A thermostat has nothing to do with the temp in your house. If you have it set at a temp for Example ( 72 ) and it is not reaching that temp to shut off then you have a problem with your unit or insulation in house. If you set stat on cool at 72 and the house gets down lower than 72 then there is a problem with stat.

Honewell RTH 7500 Temp Sensor Problem?


Check your installer configuration. If you have it set up, in the configuration, to match your system, and you can turn it up by 5 degrees with no heat, it may be a fault at the tstat. If and when it fails to cycle on, you can jump R to W, by touching those 2 terminal/wires together, and it should begin the heat process. If it don't, then it's not your tstat. Hope this helps!

This is normal. It will only turn on when the temperature set is below the ambient temperature in the area around the thermostat.

Your problem may be the location of the thermostat is not ideal form the areas you are heating. this usually cause the temperature in areas vary from the thermostat to the point wher relocation of the thermostat is sometimes the best resolution.
this is often the case wher ther are multiple heating zines in a building, and one or more zones interfere with the thermostat of others,

but it also happen in single zone heating systems too.

therostats have what is known as off-set deflection , or simplely put the plus or minus of the temp range which the heat turns on or off this setting is adjustable on many thermostats i usually set for 3 degrees if it is set for 1 or 2 it will run all the time refer to owners manual to see how to set this in program

Thermostat will not let us program the cooling past 72 we have tried to move the temporary setting also useing the hold temp button and pushing the decrease key, it seem to be locked at 72


you need to get into the installer settings to lower the minimum setpoint. look up your model online and try that. Otherwise you may have an older style auto changeover type t sat in which case you should still look up the manual and reprogram from the installer configs. or try buying a new one

Honeywell RTH230B a/c problem


if you set the thermostat on 70 and your house won't get ant cooler than 72, there is a problem with your system,not your stat. I'm thinking you are low on refrigerant if it is somewhat working. when the unit is running, if you can get your hand on the larger refrigerant line under the black insulation, it should be cold, about 55 degrees.

Thermostat temperatures not reaching preset Energy Star settings


Well with a boiler system like you have it will cost you more money to heat your house that way than if you leave it like it is. With a boiler system it takes a lot longer to heat an area than with a furnace. The best thing you can do is find a happy medium and leave it there at all times. If you read the paper work on your new thermostats they have a set procedure which tells the thermostat if you have forced air or boiler system. Do you have baseboard or in-floor heat how many zones do you have.

Gas Heat will not shut off


either your t stat is failing to recognize the high temp its achieved ,or the gas valve is sticking open despite no low volts to it= very bad. check for 24 volts at the gas valve after temp is way up past stat setting if you have 24 volts to valve the stats bad. if you have no volts to gas valve and valve is still open and burners burning, then the gas valve is bad. if valve has no power to it and is still on , heating try gently tapping side of valve. if it shuts off burners it was definitely stuck. i am not going to tell you you need a new modern system, because i think you already know that deep down inside .so much has changed as far as efficiency, gas consumption ,electric. not to mention the 5 and ten year warranties on most new stuff we sell here. with the economy so slow its a great time to name your price on new stuff. did you know some of the new stuff uses a third the electric in cooling the old units did? and the gov says in 2010 r22 freon will be mandated out of production so gas prices will be 40 dollars a pound by summer of 2009. new filter systems have one filter that last a year and cost 45 dollars and filters down to 3 microns? never clean ducts , coils, ever! wow. get a free est from a good reputable contractor. i think you'll be amazed. est should be free by the way. good luck, i myself like keeping those old ones going but there comes a time for all to go to the bone yard.
