We have Honeywell Chronotherm IV thermostats (model T8602D). I've noticed that they seem to short cycle alot. In one room that gets the least amount of sun, I hear the thermostat click on when the temp hits 68 degrees. The heat runs for a couple of minutes, and then shuts off (setting is for 68 degrees). Then a few minutes later, the thermostat will again click on at 68 degrees.
There are 4 cycle settings (cycles/hr) that can be set...
9 cph for electric
6 cph for conventional heating
3 cph for high efficiency furnaces or hot water systems
1 cph for radiant or gravity systems
We have fan coils (hydroair). Ours was set at 6 cph and I reset it to 3 cph. Does that seem roight? I guess it means it will only come on 3 times/hr?
