Thermostat location on York Diamond 90 gas furnace
Augold, sometimes its best to set the thermostat where you "feel comfortable" . I.E. set it and leave it til you feel the need to be cooler or warmer.
A thermometer on a thermostat will not always be accurate and setting it will only get it within 2 to 5 degrees which is enough to "feel".
Now from the stand point of is it working properly????
Assume you feel comfortable and the heat stays on to keep you comfortable is their anything wrong with this? I assume this is the goal. Even if it says 90 (and you know its not 90) and your comfortable you could leave it alone and be OK. If this kind of thing is whats bothering you a new thermostat may not be much better, unless your ready to invest in one and accept it however it should be closer to the place youd set it. Id recommend an electronic type they are more accurate and level doesn't matter so much to these types.
If you want to set the temperature and are determined to go by a
thermometer to "feel Comfortable" I recommend you buy an electronic
thermometer and set it close by the thermostat. Make sure you have no
lamps or other heat sources close to the thermostat area.
Remember the far end of a room or a chair by a window Especially with
little or no curtains and on the prevailing out door wind will always
feel colder and be colder than the area by the thermostat even if both
are in the same room. If your too cold try running the thermostat up a
few degrees. If too warm set it lower. The equipment doesn't care how
cold or warm it is.You will not increase your utility bills to the
national debt by being comfortable
If this helps please grade me accordingly and Good Luck.
