What is the Outside Ventilation setting?

Outside Ventilation:

If your Pelican solution is managing your building’s ventilation rates, then thermostats will allow you to enable and disable when outside ventilation is active and when it is not. 

Most building codes require ventilation to be active during all normally occupied periods. Traditionally, ventilation is enabled 1 to 2 hours before normally occupied period, stays active during the normally occupied period, and remains active for 1 to 2 hours after the normally occupied period. Ventilation is then disabled during normally unoccupied periods. 

For ventilation to be active, the thermostat must have Fan and Outside Ventilation set to ON. These settings can be set either manually on the Pelican App at the thermostat’s control screen, or be schedule under the thermostat’s schedule.
