Energy Saving Control Upgrades
As there was no alternative control available, people lived with its rather crude temperature control. What we mean by this is that if you had set the desired room temperature to say twenty degrees, the unit would turn your heating system off when this temperature was reached, as it is designed to do.
The problem arises when the room begins to cool. This type of thermostat works on either a two or three degree variance. As the two degree ones were available at extra cost, the majority of units installed as original equipment in your house will have a three degree switching variance.
What this means to the user is that as your room begins to cool, the temperature becomes uncomfortable. The next course of action most people take is to turn the thermostat up to a higher setting to heat the room again. This is generally followed by the room getting too hot, at which point the thermostat is turned down again.
This constant need to vary the setting on your room thermostat is not only annoying, it is also wasting a considerable amount of fuel, with the consequences impacting not only on your comfort levels, but also on your pocket and on the environment.
An old style rotary thermostat with a three-degree variance will normally do precisely what it is designed to do. E.G. Room temperature set at twenty degrees, twenty degrees attained, thermostat turns heating off. Room temperature drops to seventeen degrees, thermostat turns heating on. Therefore, this type of room thermostat can only maintain a variable comfort level, which will vary by three degrees. In the example above, a thermostat setting of twenty degrees will give a room temperature of between seventeen and twenty degrees.
