I installed the white round honeywell thermostat this last winter, and the heat immediately turned on. Now it's summer, and I tried turning on the cold air for the first time and nothing is happening. Any ideas??

You should always include model number in requests. More info is better. In general, there is a setting for Heat and cold on cheaper thermostats. Mine is like that. It works for heating in winter and you must switch it to "cool" for summer. I assume you do have an AC unit for summer. Who wired it up? was it ever working? Did it get installed during winter? The wiring may be wrong, there are a lot of possible ways to wire. If you are not good at that (and why would you be here if you were?) better get a tech to check it out. In the old days, Edison might send out a tech for free to advise (not fix) if there is a possibility of short (dangerous).
If you are leaving for SUMMER, definitely do not need to set at 65, that would be tremendous waste of energy. Humidistat in summer should be off. I wonder if he thought you would be gone during winter.
what i would do is make sure tha the hole for the wires that go to the humidistat is completely closed and that you are sensing the true humidity for the space also have the tech wire the so that the heat comes on instead of the ac for the de-hiumidification process.
if you have an emergency heat position we will assume you've got a heat pump. If you do not have a heat pump you have the wrong thermostat for your application. Need model of this thermostat, wire colors, termiation points (what terminal designator they are connected to), and if you have it where they were and the model of the last thermostat that worked correctly
my air conditioning does not turn on at the time i want it on. previous owners had set timers for it to turn on, how do i re-set the timer as we do not want the timer on. we want to be able to turn it on and off as we please.
