Switching the termostat to the cooling option with your adjusted temperature setting should take care of that. Be sure to check your thermostat's manual for more troubleshooting tips. If that doesn’t seem to solve the issue, please make sure to give Affordable Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning and Electric a call to schedule an appointment.
Heating and cooling your home is the biggest contributor to your energy bills. A programmable thermostat makes it easy to manage those costs. However, if you don't use the thermostat correctly, you could actually end up paying more.
