Help Needed - Program Honeywell Prestige Thermostat
I bought a Honeywell Prestige thermostat with remote outdoor sensor. However the installer's manual is pretty skimpy with respect to menu description and settings.
I want to setup my 2H/1C HP system (w/strip BU) to minimize energy use and maximize equipment lifetime even if some comfort get's sacrificed.
A lot of the options are obvious but here are some questions:
Leave the CPH at 3. 2 can cause a lot of temp swing.
Locking out the compressor at 25° will still use far more electric. Even if it only goes below 25 a couple days out of the year.
Doesn't really save wear and tear on the compressor. Since at that temp. The compressor should be just about running continuous, and that is what it is designed for.
I'd set the aux lock out lower. Maybe to 35, and see if it can handle the load at that temp. if so, then might even set it to 30.
The lower you can set that, and still heat your house, the more money you save.
Thanks Beenthere! That's exactly the type of info I was looking for.
