    Honeywell T-Stat 8320 Lockout

    It appears the lowest lockout (code 0360) for the compressor with the Honeywell 8320 is 40 degrees.This does not seem cost effective---is there a way to override this and set it at a lower temperature?

    Thank you

    0360 isn't for the compressor.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Maybe I have the terminology incorrect---I was told the 0360 determines the temperature where the heat strips kick in.Is that not true?

    Thank you

    The temp where the heat strips are allowed to kick in.

    Strips still won't come on unless the HP is not able to maintain set temp. Or you raise the set temp 2 or more degrees above indoor temp.

    Its a draw back of the 8000 series thermostats.

    The IAQ is better(9000 series).

    Is there any way you know of to swap out (via the Honeywell company) the 8320 (we have 2 of them) for the 9000 series.The HVAC contractor will not -they are only 2 months old.Is there a known place/way to attempt to sell them?

    Not really. Which thermostat to use is lft up to the installer and customer. Honeywell has no involvement in it. So they aren't responsible to exchange it.

    Not much of a market for used thermostats.

    Do you know of a good inexpensive thermostat for a heat pump/AC with strip back up that will allow more of a swing ( 5 or more degrees) before the strips come on--- as well as locking out the strips at temperatures above 30 degrees and once below that will allow use of both heat pump & strip heat to conserve costs? I don't really care about the programmable feature.

    Thanks

    No. That wouldn't be a very comfortable type of set up either.

    Setting the stat to 68, an it not bringing on the strips until the house drops to 63 wouldn't be a very popular thing.
