Hi all -
5 year old AC / Heat Pump , unknown age of the Honeywell Thermostat ( can't find a model number on it anywhere). I was told the unit is a 5 ton. House is about 2200 sf.
I'm concerned about the short periods between cycles. If the thermostat is showing a temp of 68* and I bump it up to 70* the unit will run and produce very warm air. Once it reaches the set temp it runs for about 10 minutes but blows air that is not as warm and once it shuts off, it cycles back on after about 5 minutes.
I hope this makes sense. I find myself bumping the temp up a couple degrees, letting it run to get to that temp and then bumping it down a couple degrees so it does not cycle on and off so much and blow cooler air. It's like it is trying to hold the temp exactly as set with no variation.
Do I need to cal someone out to install a newer Thermostat ?
