Auto Changeover

Use this feature in climates where both air conditioning and heating are used on the same day. When the system mode is in Auto, the thermostat automatically selects heating or cooling depending on the indoor temperature.

While in the Auto mode, if a schedule override takes place (temporarily or permanently) the thermostat will automatically adjust the cooling and heating settings to maintain a 3-degree separation between the cool and heat settings.

For example, if the heat temperature is raised to where it gets within 3-dgrees of the cool setting, the display will show an up arrow next to “cool” to show the thermostat is raising the cool setting up to maintain a 3-dgreee separation.

The display will also show both “Auto” and either “Heat” or “Cool” for which temperature setting you are currently adjusting. Press the system button to select between the heat and cool to view/adjust either mode.

If the cool temperature is lowered to where it gets close to the heat setting, an arrow next to heat will show the thermostat is lowering the heat setting down to maintain a 3-degree separation.

FIG 14 About your new thermostat

Warning IconCAUTION: To avoid possible compressor damage, do not use Auto Changeover if the outside temperature drops below 50°F (10°C).

Filter reminder

FIG 15 About your new

Special features

Smart Response® Technology: This feature allows the thermostat to “learn” how long the furnace and air conditioner take to reach programmed temperature settings, so the temperature is reached at the time you set. For example: Set the Wake time to 6 am, and the temperature to 70°. The heat will come on before 6 am, so the temperature is 70° by the time you wake at 6. The message “Recovery” is displayed when the system is activated before a scheduled time period.

Compressor Protection: This feature forces the compressor to wait a few minutes before restarting, to prevent equipment damage. During the wait time, the message “Wait” is displayed on screen.

Auto Changeover: This feature is used in climates where both air conditioning and heating are used on the same day. When the system is set to Auto, the thermostat automatically selects heating or cooling depending on the indoor temperature. Heat and cool settings must be at least 3 degrees apart. The thermostat will automatically adjust settings to maintain this 3-degree separation.

Warning Icon  CAUTION: To avoid possible compressor damage, do not use Auto Changeover if the outside temperature drops below 50°F (10°C).
