Question about Heating & Cooling
I would change the thermostat... it is running the heat anticipator in cooling when it should only run it in heating...
The heat anticipator is like a small heater inside the thermostat that fakes the thermostat into shutting down before the temperature is actually that warm so that the residual heat from the furnace just heats the room to the proper temp.
Pulling it off the wall temporarily fixes it but then it hangs up again later...
The flashing also is very normal....that means that the thermostat is in delay mode.....it will do that to let the pressures equalize in the A/C condenser so that it will start properly...nothing wrong there...
Make sure to mark each wire well before taking the old t-stat off of the wall...also make sure to read the directions and get the new stat set up properly for it to work correctly with your system.
