The ENRG SAV LED lights during the LEAVE and SLEEP periods. The CT8611 also includes AUX. HT. and EM. HT. LEDs near the bottom center of the subbase. The AUX. HT. LED lights whenever the thermostat is calling for operation of the backup or auxiliary heater.
TOOLS REQUIRED FOR INSTALLATION Assemble a flat blade screwdriver and other tools as needed (right). Test to make certain that your heating and cooling systems are working properly. If either does not work, contact your local heating/air condi- tioning dealer. To avoid compressor damage, do not operate the cooling system if outdoor tempera- ture is below 50 F [10 C].
Disconnect wires from old thermostat or sub base. Always label all wires as you disconnect them from your old thermostat. Use the CT8611 Wire Tags provided to label each wire with the appropriate terminal designation as you remove it. It is important to note the terminal designation when removing wires.
Do not discard your old thermostat until you have thoroughly checked out system opera- tion with your new Honeywell CT8611 Heat Pump Thermostat installed. If your old thermostat con- tains mercury, do not dispose of it in the trash, see below.
MOUNT THERMOSTAT SUBBASE The subbase does not require leveling for proper operation; level it for appearance only. Remove thermostat from subbase (Fig. 1). Mount the subbase directly onto the wall with the screws included in the package. Use the subbase as a template, and with a pencil, mark the two mounting screw positions (Fig.

A CHANGE IN CYCLE RATE. The room air temperature normally varies slightly from the comfort temperature setting with the cycling of the heat pump or auxiliary heater. INSTALL BATTERIES Three AAA alkaline batteries are included with the thermostat to prevent program loss in case of power outage.
program will remain for only about 20 seconds in the event of power loss. When batteries are first installed, the display will flash 1:00 PM and 32 . When the batteries are low, the display will flash REPL BAT. You have 20- 30 seconds to replace batteries after removing them from the thermostat.
SET DAY AND TIME Restore 24V power to the thermostat. When power is applied, the display will read 1:00 PM and indicate the room temperature. It will go off for a few seconds, then begin to flash on and off. Set the present day and time.
During normal operation, the backup heat will come on after a delay. Backup (auxiliary) heat is more expensive to operate than the heat pump and typically is used only when the heat pump is unable to handle the load. CHECK EMERGENCY HEATING OPERATION Move the system switch to EM.
ABOUT ADAPTIVE INTELLIGENT RECOVERY • People perceive temperature from a variety of sources, not only from the air in the room, but also from their surroundings—walls, windows and furnishings. • Human beings feel differences in temperature as slight as two degrees Fahrenheit. •...
