How to set the swing temperature on the smart thermostat
The swing setting on the smart thermostat allows you to change the range at which the thermostat will allow the temperature to change before heating or cooling your home. This setting is helpful for getting the most efficiency possible out of your new thermostat. The swing can allow the temperature to fluctuate +2 or -2 degrees from the target temperature.
As an example, let's say the target temperature is set to 68 degrees fahrenheit. If the air conditioning is on, and the swing is set to 2 degrees fahrenheit, it will allow the home to heat up to 70 degrees fahrenheit before cooling it back down to the 68 degree target temperature. This will keep the HVAC unit from coming on when it is not necessarily needed, saving energy, and money.
- Go to the thermostat.
- Press the MENU button.
- Press the SWING button located at the upper middle of the thermostat screen.
- Use the arrows to the left and right to adjust the swing temperature to the desired level. Keep in mind, the higher the swing temperature, the more efficient the HVAC system will be, the lower the swing temperature, the more consistent the temperature in the home will be.
- Press the house button twice to save the change you made, and to return to the home screen of the thermostat.
