HVAC - Thermostat

A programmable thermostat has been installed in your home to control your heating and cooling system.

Care and Maintenance Tips Operation

  • Each degree of change in temperature increases your energy consumption considerably.
  • Use your thermostat to create programs to raise or lower the temperature (based on if you are heating or cooling) 2-4 degrees to conserve electricity during known times when you will not be in the home (such as the workday).
  • Avoid placing lamps, televisions or appliances that generate heat near the thermostat.
  • Avoid "juggling" the thermostat by large amounts (over 4 degrees). The heating and cooling unit takes time to process and you will likely not achieve the desired effects in the time you wish to obtain them.


  • Turn the thermostat setting to "heat" to activate the heating system or to "cool" to activate the air conditioner.
  • The "on" and "auto" setting controls whether the blower on the system recycles air through the home continually (on) or only when the unit is running (auto). If you have ceiling fans in your home, keep setting on "auto" and use the ceiling fans to help circulate air around the home when the heating or cooling unit is not running.
