    On and off

    is all a conventional thermostat can manage.  Look for a setting called swing, which determines how far above and below the setpoint the stat will wait before it turns on or off.

    More info would be helpful...

    What is the t-stat doing now???

    What is the model number of the t-stat?

    By knowing these things we can help you possibly fine tune the t-stat to work more like you want it to...

    That is what your t-stat is supposed to hold.It may take a few days to get there.

    You also may be able to change the cycles setting. Check the attached installation manual for instructions for doing that.,TH1110D,TH1210D,TH2110D,TH2210DInstall4.pdf

    Where did you find the +/-1 deg spec?

    Honeywell's manual and website do not specify the swing and electronic thermostats can vary from +/-0.5 to +/- 2 degrees.
