EST +5 time problems on the forum?

I live in Pennsylvania USA on the Eastern Standard Time (EST). I honestly thought that PA was +5? Everytime I set +5 in my setting it’s give me a later time.

As writing this thread, it’s about 16:43 right now. 4:443PM Standard. What would be the correct format be for PA EST? Obviously +5 isn’t it.

I use the auto setting I find it the easier way.
