Let’s start the process by finding out what model of thermostat your residence has.
There are three models of thermostats:
As is the case with the majority of technologically advanced things, there are regular glitches that can occur. Most of these troubles don’t call for professional assistance and are easy to repair on your own.
All Honeywell thermostats have a unique group of codes that correspond to the malfunctions that happen.
Think how uncomplicated it can be to repair a computer by restarting it. Many times, correcting a thermostat can be just as uncomplicated.
Here is a guide to the most encountered Honeywell thermostat errors. These include the following programmable thermostats:
If the screen is blank on your programmable thermostat, you may need to replace the batteries. If that doesn’t fix the trouble or you have 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 in the “on” position.
Also, you should confirm all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are sturdily fastened.
A panel that isn’t tight may activate the safety switch, which stops power to the equipment.
While it’s less common, a clear screen may mean you should install a new thermostat.
Check that your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
In the summer, make sure you schedule the thermostat lower than the room temperature. When it’s cold, verify it’s higher. This sounds absurd, but we’ve seen it happen lots of times.
Ensure the power switch by your indoor equipment is in the “on” position. You should also check the cabinet doors or panels are secure on your furnace cabinet or air handler. An open panel can activate the safety switch, diverting current to the system.
Equipment still won’t start? Make sure circuit breakers haven’t tripped and that your HVAC system isn’t experiencing error codes.
First, verify your thermostat is switched to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, verify it’s telling the right equipment to start. This is typically shown by “cool on,” “heat on” or an illustration.
If these words or the illustration is blinking, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay status. This mode keeps your equipment from damaging short cycling. This can take place if you lose power.
