Re: the VIP thermostat


I don't know what list it was on but evidently, at least some of these computerized thermostats have a range you can set where the thermostat will make the furnace turn on if the temperature drops too low below its setting or, I suppose, for air conditioning if it goes too high up.  Perhaps the range needs adjusting.

I actually bought my thermostat from before they
went out of business, and I did tell the owner Harry Cohen that I had an
electric system.
