How do I turn OFF cooling?
On your Pelican App's navigate to a thermostat's climate control screen that you want to turn Heating Off for.
Setting the System
By changing the thermostat’s System to OFF or COOL, heating will not run unless it is turned back on manually or your schedule places it back into heating.
Adjust the Heat Set Point
By setting the heat set-point lower than the room temperature, the thermostat will turn OFF heating until the room temperature drops below the new heat set-point.
Heating will not run unless the room temperature drops below the new set point or the heat set point is manually or your schedule places it back to a set point above the room temperature..
How do I turn ON heating?
On your Pelican App's navigate to a thermostat's climate control screen that you want to turn Heating On for.
Setting the Auto or Heat
On a room thermostat’s climate control page you will see a button labeled System. Setting System to HEAT or AUTO provides you with a heat set-point slider which can be adjusted to your desired room temperature.
For heating to turn ON make sure your heat set-point is above your room temperature.
When I adjust one of my set points, why does it automatically adjust the other?
This is called a dead-band.
A dead-band prevents a thermostat from accidentally fighting itself, IE: If, after a cooling cycle, the room temperature drops below the heat set-point, you don’t want your thermostat to then turn on the heat, heat up the space above the cool set-point, then re-enable cooling and start battling itself. This is both uncomfortable and energy inefficient.
Pelican auto enforces a 3°F heat and cool set-point dead-band, and, as an extra precaution, the thermostat will auto-adjusts this dead-band to up to 5°F to further prevent thermostat fighting.
