Control cycling of home furnace thermostat for max. energy efficiency
I have a home that is rarely used in the winter (northern Minn.). I want to turn down the heat to minimum via the honeywell T-87 (2-wire) thermostat and have it cycle as infrequently as possible. Two part question:
How does the anticipator work?
Since the thermostat is mercury controlled, could I "unbalance" the unit to go even further down in temperature?
Thank you Billy
