Interior temp reading inaccurate
While setting up the settings before any install found the display reading inaccurate. Compared with the reading on the digital Hunter that it is replacing. Replacing the Hunter due to faulty A/C circuit in the circuit board. Thought I would try this one due to the Hunter model is no longer made. Used the same calibrated digital thermometer in the picture I use on HAVAC systems to check readings at the Hunter and both readings match. Read reviews on this Honeywell model and found that tech support advised another customer that they will read 4 degrees off which is unsatisfactory with any product. Also found another customer with temp readings inaccurate and using a separate thermometer to control temperature settings. Also found that the cycle settings for the A/C is 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off with different setting for the max number off times it will cycle with in an hour only. Do not need it cycling on/off every 10 minutes like another customer issue has. Put product back in the box to send back and looking for another thermostat likely a newer version of a Hunter due do reviews found so far on this site for other models. My A/C is still working just can not lock the Hunter thermostat on to the wall plate causing a faulty connection.
Response from SupportOct 4, 2021
Thank you for sharing your experience with us. The thermostat should not read 4 degrees off. Our thermostats do read ambient room temperature. As far as the cycle rate is concerned, the thermostat will use its internal algorithm to ensure the most efficient way to keep up with the desired temperature. If you choose to use our products in future, we would be happy to help answer any questions. Thank you again for your feedback. -Jay
    Easy Set-up; Lots of features
    Our 16 year-old thermostat finally gave out. We tried installing a wifi thermostat but it got super complicated to install since we didn't have a c-wire. It required opening the furnace and moving wires around on a computer board. Still couldn't get it to work. The Honeywell T5 was a great alternative and was way cheaper and I installed it in less than 20 minutes. We have a 5 wire thermostat and there was a spot for each and every wire in the T5. Setup was pretty easy - follow the prompts and select your furnace type. Setting the temperature for heat and AC by time of day and day of week took a few steps but it was easy to do. I never had to go to the dark basement to fiddle with the furnace except to turn it off for the installation. I recommend this thermostat for anyone who doesn't need wifi capability and for those who want an easy to install thermostat.

        I love my new Honeywell programmable thermostat. I hate it if it is too hot at night, so I am always turning the heat down. Very often I forget to do it and an hour or so later I am getting up to go down and do it. This does everything for me. It is wonderful!!!

        Thermostat was easy to install. I called tech. support because the DH wire on my old unit didn't have a corresponding location on this unit. Tech support was pleasant but suggested that the DH wire was not supported. I connected the remaining wires for my heat pump configuration and so far appears to function as expected.

        Works great. Instructions for installation were clear, however when the setup was complete, we found that the heating and cooling devices were working in the opposite modes. We needed to figure out our own and make the swap.

              Nice thermostat
              I bought this T5 to replace an 18 year old Honeywell programable that was beginning to show signs of age. This was easy to install (only have 2 wires on my forced hot water oil system), took about 15 minutes, and programming was pretty user friendly. Allows for weekday and weekend programming which was a feature I was looking for. Seen some reviews complaining about the temperature reading being off, haven't experienced that personally, and if so I would just set to my comfort level and be done. I do not have a C-wire so utilize the four batteries for power, so far so good. Learning curve for use is not steep, after a few minutes of playing around had it figured out. Looks more modern (and smaller) than the old one, happy with the purchase/
