Installed my thermostat 2 days ago - Goodman forced air gas furnace, variable speed, modulating. With my old Honeywell T6 thermostat the furnace stayed on low speed most of the time, exc. mornings when raising the temp from 64 to 68. The temp swings were minimal.
With the Wyze, the temp swings are greater, and the furnace goes on high almost every time. Apparently it’s waiting for the temp to drop quite far before issuing a call to heat, so then the furnace goes on high to swing the heat back up. How can I adjust the thermostat sensitivity? I’ve tried setting it to both extremes of the “Behavior” range but that doesn’t seem to have any effect on the above behavior, and the description of the Behavior setting is so vague and all-encompasing that it’s not clear what it actually controls.
It seems that Wyze is trying to hide the complexities of HVAC management behind some algorithms guided by a couple of simple concepts like “Behavior” plus the heating configuration setup questions, That’s probably a god thing for people who don’t want to know the details, but there should be a way for those of us who do like to dig a little deeper (incl. HVAC pros) to control specific behavior. Maybe an “Advanced” configuration option with a caveat (like Honeywell thermostats), or at least a “Sensitivity” setting.
Anyone else with similar problems - or better yet, a solution??
