Honeywell Thermostat Heat on Blinking

Honeywell is a well-known thermostat maker. They’re trustworthy and durable. Furthermore, Honeywell’s technology is always evolving, resulting in new functionality for your home. But sometimes a thermostat can experience some issues such as heat on blinking. Here we try to troubleshoot this problem and why this heat on blinking happened will be discussed in detail.

So Why Honeywell Thermostat Heat on Blinking?

It could be that the control board is blinking heat on while requesting heat, causing the inducer motor to switch on while the pressure is being checked by the control board. The heat light may be flashing because the thermostat indicates that heat is required but the furnace’s pressure switches are locked in the incorrect position, preventing the furnace from turning on.

Check to see whether the thermostat is set to heat and if the “Heat On” button is flashing. A safety timer has been tripped to safeguard the compressor in your thermostat. Your thermostat should be able to keep its heat setting once this stops flashing.

What are the other Reasons for Heat on Blinking?

  • Power outage
  • Switching from cooling to heating
  • Battery replacement
  • Low battery

Power outage

A power loss is one of the most prevalent reasons of thermostat blinking. When there is no electricity, your Honeywell thermostat may begin to flash after the compressor runs when the power is restored. The pressure on the compressor creates flashing during the restarting operation.

Switching from cooling to heating

The compressor may be put under stress while switching from cooling to heating. Your Honeywell thermostat will flicker as a consequence. When you move from heating to cooling, the same thing happens.

Battery replacement

When you replace your batteries, the Cool On display will flash for a time. If the problem persists, contact a professional technician to fix the thermostat in case there is a more serious problem.

Low battery

When your thermostat’s battery is low, it may begin to flicker. However, this is more common with earlier models. A distinct indication for a low battery is available on some of the most recent Honeywell thermostats.

If Your Thermostat Keeps Blinking After A While, Here Is What You Need To Do.

You have to reset your Honeywell Thermostat to fix heat on blinking:

  • Turn your thermostat off.
  • Wait for 15-20 seconds and turn it back on.
  • It could take up to 10 minutes because your system will automatically restart.

If the outdoor unit has not started running again, you will need to call a professional technician to diagnose the problem.
