thermostat or outside unit?

I have a White Rodgers thermostat and a Lennox Elite 13 Heat Pump. The other night, it was very cold in the house and the thermostat had some odd readings (set on 95, temperature showed 65 but it was actually in the 50s) I reset the thermostat the next day and used the emergency heat setting which worked fine. It has since warmed back up (Atlanta weather) Does anyone have any insight into this?

Heat was set on 95? Thermostat still reading 10-15 degrees off? If the thermostat is still off that much replace it. Could be other problems also but start with the simple stuff.

Was the outdoor and indoor units both running ? Did you check them both to see if they were ? They should have if you had the thermostat @ 95 and the house was much colder.
