Conventional type: This type of thermostat does not require any maintenance.
Note: If the room is dark a small blue flash may be noticed when heating or air conditioning comes on. This is normal.
Programmable / Electronic types: Annual replacement of batteries is necessary for proper operation where applicable.
- This type of thermostat normally maintains the temperature within half of 1ºC, unlike conventional thermostats, which may vary up to 3ºC. The furnace or air conditioner may cycle more rapidly especially under low load conditions. This is a normal operating condition.
- Programmable Thermostats can conserve energy and save you money.
- Do not set back your temperature more than 3°C. A temperature difference of more than 3ºC will not provide any savings.
