Also know, what is a thermostat heat anticipator?
A heat anticipator is an electrical resistor device mounted in the center of many mechanical thermostats. It fine tunes the point at which the thermostat turns off the furnace burners. The heat anticipator essentially consists of a small disc attached to the bimetallic coil of the thermostat.
Furthermore, what does a thermostat anticipator do? The purpose of a thermostat heat anticipator is to "de-sensitize" the thermostat so that when actual room temperature is hovering close to the set temperature on the thermostat, the thermostat switch won't keep switching the air conditioner or heating system on and off too often - which can damage the equipment.
Secondly, how do I set the heat anticipator on my Honeywell thermostat?
How to Adjust a Honeywell Thermostat Heat Anticipator
- Adjust the thermostat dial to the farthest point toward the left to check the system's heating operation.
- Set the system switch to the left, or 'Cool,' setting if the unit is fitted with a sub base.
- Remove your Honeywell thermostat's cover.
- Locate the adjustable heat anticipator pointer.
How does a thermostat heat anticipator work?
Thermostats have another cool device called a heat anticipator. The heat anticipator shuts off the heater before the air inside the thermostat actually reaches the set temperature. Sometimes, parts of a house will reach the set temperature before the part of the house containing the thermostat does.
