Honeywell T-6 Programmable Thermostat

Hello, my name is Joe. I am a Sales Representative and former Maintenance Technician at Standard Heating & Air Conditioning. Today I am going to show you how to set up the 3 most common settings on your Honeywell T-6 Programmable Thermostat.

  1. System Settings
  2. Changing of temperature & fan speed
  3. Scheduling Preferences

System Setting

To change system settings, touch the mode button on the left hand side of the thermostat. To switch from heating to cooling, or to turn everything off continue to press the mode button until you have found your desired selection.


To change the temperature, touch the plus (+) or minus (-) button on either side of your thermostat.

To change fan operation find the fan button in the right hand corner of your thermostat, press that button until you have found your desired setting.

Scheduling Preferences

To update your scheduling preference. Touch the menu button in the middle of the bottom of your screen. The first option that will show up is programming, press select. It will then ask if you would like to select on, press select again. From here, refer to your owners manual for step-by-step instructions on how to schedule your preferences.
