    Continuing thermostat problems

    You need to get a digital thermometer, whose accuracy is guaranteed . Put that right next to your thermostat to see if both agree on the temperature. I think your system is overshooting the target temperature, due to bad thermostat setup. Keep the thermostat set on a constant temperature all week (68 degrees), and see whether the temperature will even out at that setting.

    If there are random fluctuations, then you will have to describe your system to us in detail, so we can advise you what can be done. The system as a whole must be considered, and not just one part.

    Keep all of these questions, and observations in one thread, so that we only have to look at the top to find some information, instead of looking through a dozen different posts.--NBC

    Service Tech

    You obviously are not willing to help anyone help you with this.

    You cannot fix it by adding posts. One post with the info requested would resolve this.

    You should call a service tech and have them fix your thermostat.
