Honeywell Thermostat Cycles Per Hour

You may have a Honeywell Chronotherm thermostat that has 2 cycling settings: 6 cycles per hour and 3 cycles per hour. I downloaded.
The standard for cast-iron radiators and high-efficiency furnaces is three cycles per hour — 20 minutes per cycle. The standard for electric heat is nine cycles per hour. The longer it takes the system to emit all its heat, the longer a cycle should be. Of course the longer the cycles, the fewer there are in an hour.
The Honeywell’s t-stat use CPH (Cycles per Hour) setting vs temp swings. I’d suggest setting the CPH to 3. Some times they don’t say CPH.
I find that especially with this recent subzero cold, a 1 CPH (cycle per hour). like the CPH-set type thermostats (I’m looking at you Honeywell).
Is it the cph that determines how often the heating and cooling system operates or the programmed swing that Honeywell thermostats use-which I.
I believe the 3 CPH you listed for setup #9 is for cooling, not heating. So, if your thermostat calls for heat 1 time per hour to maintain the set point, your system will run. I had a very familiar experience with my Honeywell stat.
I’m still not convinced you can change CPH on your thermostat but I am not an expert as others, here, are. CPH is cycles per hour. Function 1.
What got me started was the dip switches and the cycles per hour settings. This issue of Honeywell thermostats and their absence of swing.
This one starts a series on adjusting cycles per hour of heating and cooli.
