Is this an electric or gass furnace - Eather of these can can have this problem its most recomendable that you call a seviceman .
in the case of electric furnace you may requier a new heat sequencer. And in the case of gass you may requier a new relay.

My thermostat is set on 68 degrees and it shows room temperature is 68, but the furnace still kickson, Honeywell said it has a 1 degree difference. so what's the problem then?

Yes there is a one degree tolerance, in fact my heater just kicked on and it is set to 67 and the inside temperature reads 67. It is also a Honeywell.

WHY DOES MY FURNACE SHUT OFF BEFORE REACHING TEMP

Hi Demetrio
Furnaces turn on and off based on what they're told by your thermostat. The thermostat, in turn, will control the furnace based on:
  1. The temperature AT the thermostat.
  2. What the internal heat sensor thinks the temperature of the air is.
So, if your idea of 68 degrees is what the thermostat thinks is 71 degrees (thermostat reads three degrees high), then when the air by the thermostat gets to about 65 degrees (by your account), it'll think it's 68 degrees and shut the furnace off.

Also, if the thermostat is, say, near a source of local heat, like a lamp, a big piece of electronics, a fireplace, or that place that you habitually set down your coffee, then the air right next to the thermostat may be warmer than the rest of the room, and fool it into thinking it's at it's target.

The sensor is usually inside the housing for the thermostat. If it hasn't been dusted in a while, then it can be hard for air to get inside to affect the sensor, though this would generally cause it to lag on readouts and run the temperature higher than you wanted.

If you have a digital readout, and the system is saying , hey, target is 68, and the readout gets to 66 and the system cuts off the furnace.... my only other guess is that the unit may have features that are trying to prevent overshoot - i.e. by the time the temp at the thermostat actually gets to 68, most of the room is more like 73. That'd depend on your particular thermostat. At that point, you may want to call customer service with the manufacturer and tell them the issue. There may be ways to adjust the unit to get behavior closer to what you seek.

Good Luck!

I have a Carrier Comfort Zone II with 2 controlled zones. The floor with just the sensor controls perfectly. I set that zone at 75 and it stays at 75. The other zone has the actual thermostat. If I se

Sounds to me like a bad damper or a bad zone panel. Turn tstat off and call for cooling on zone 2. Then see if your still getting cool air to zone 1.( where the main tstat is)

At what temperature do I program the thermostat for a comfortable cooling(at how much do set the cool and h ow much should I set the heat). Thanks for your help

I turned my thermostat down this morning to 68 degrees. I came back about 2 hours later to increase the temp to 70 degrees but when I push the ^ arrow instead of showing the increase to 70 it just flashes...

Since it's within 2 degrees of your setting it could be one of two things. Most furnaces run longer (pass your setting) to maintain the setting you made. Which really not a problem. However, your thermostat may need calibrating. To test this theory, place a regular wall thermometer next to your furnace's thermostat and see if the two temps match when the furnace cuts on and then when it cuts off.
If the temps are both the same, the furnace thermostat is fine.

If you're turning it down to 68, because no one will be at home during the day, just set it 2 degrees cooler than 68 degrees. You will then wind up with 68 degrees.

Here is a simple way to tell. Remove your thermostat from it's mounting plate, locate the wiring, the red and white are low voltage control wires. Disconnect them from the base and join the two together if the furnace runs you need a thermostat if not it is in the controls to the furnace.

Blank readings on Carrier Comfort 3 zone thermostat

The stat that works is called the main and the other two are called slave stats. The stats must be set to heat or cool the same as the main. If you want one room to cool and one to heat , sorry. Need to upgrade to auto changeover. Is this AC actally a Heat pump?
