Let’s get started with the process by finding out what kind of thermostat your residence has.
There are three types of thermostats:
As is the case with many technologically advanced solutions, there are several malfunctions that might take place. Many of these troubles don’t call for professional support and are uncomplicated enough to solve on your own.
All Honeywell thermostats have a unique group of codes assigned to the malfunctions that take place.
Think how easy it can be to fix a computer by restarting it. In most situations, diagnosing a thermostat can be just as easy.
Here is a listing the most common Honeywell thermostat problems. These apply to the following programmable thermostats:
If the screen is clear on your programmable thermostat, you could need to replace the batteries. If that doesn’t take care of the problem or you rely on a smart thermostat, there may be a wiring issue.
Next, you should ensure the power is on for your furnace or air handler. Make sure the switch by the indoor system is switched “on”.
In addition to that, you should make sure all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are securely secured.
An unsecured panel may activate the safety switch, which disconnects power to the system.
Less frequently, a clear monitor might mean you will need to replace your thermostat.
Make sure that your thermostat is switched to “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
In the summer, verify you put the thermostat lower than the current temperature. When it’s cold, verify it’s higher. This sounds absurd, but we’ve seen it happen many times.
Confirm the power switch by your indoor system is in the “on” position. You should also check the cabinet doors or panels are tight on your furnace cabinet or air handler. An unsecured panel can activate the safety switch, diverting power to the system.
Equipment still won’t run? Confirm circuit breakers haven’t flipped and that your HVAC system isn’t displaying error codes.
To begin, check your thermostat is switched to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, check it’s calling for the appropriate equipment to turn on. This is often indicated by “cool on,” “heat on” or an illustration.
If these words or the illustration is pulsing, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay mode. This setting stops your system from bad short cycling. This can occur if you lose power.
