Wow these numbers shock me. If I'm in a room that gets over 70° I sweat.

Don't ever trust the thermostat. My upstairs airconditioning is comfortable at different numbers than my downstairs. That could be both a function of the floor layout (and vents) as well as the thermostat and its location.

In my office I used to be comfortable with the AC set to 70. This week I found that I need to bring it to the low 60s to feel comfortable.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I'm monitoring it with thermometer. Much better range at 22c so far versus 72 or 73.

You should be able to set the range like I mentioned earlier.

Honeywell 9000 series.
I dont have experience with Honeywell, I have 2 friedrichs and one GE.

Air conditioners when on money/energy saver they go off once it hits the set temperature it goes off and goes back on once the temperature goes back up problem is when it's off there's no circulation to feel the real temp so while Dan is sweating hot mr cool is still cool, friedrich air conditioners while its off after reaching desired temp the fan goes on frequently (I'm not sure the interval they use)  to circulate air and gets a more accurate room temp. While my GE air conditioner didnt have it and is already out off commission, they were both bought at the same time.

How?
Buy a different thermostat.  :)
It looks like your temperature differential is fixed at within 1 degree.

Using C seems to cover the half degrees.

I would think using C would create a bigger swing between off an on. If it works go with it.

It sounds like some are taking window units and others central.

Curious to know how your thermometer reads compared to the thermostat. I like my  surroundings at a cool 68-69, yet I set my AC to 73. I have sleeve units, so there's a more powerful concentrated blast, but it's more limited. I believe 73 keeps my place at about 69.
