Question about Kitchen Ranges
We heat the upstairs of our home with wood. The downstairs, which is unoccupied, is heated to only 50° with oil-fired baseboard hot water. It seems like the heat is coming on WAY too often. We have an old, round Honeywell thermostat, and I know there's a way to adjust the cut in/cut out on that unit by moving a sliding pointer towards the bottom of the unit. What's the best setting, given that nobody uses the space? (Sorry, there was no heating category so I chose stove)
The little pointer is called an anticipator, and it is just that. It anticipates how long to wait before coming back on. It has little numbers on it, hopefully you can read them. like .5 will wait 1/2 minute at that temp. before coming back on. It sounds like a high setting is what you are looking for, so a long time setting will be what you want, and if you haven't already figures it out, sliding the pointer is how to change the setting.
