I am currious about a couple of things.
What seems to be the normal "gap" setting for a t-stat to turn on, I know there is a simple word for this term but it eludes me at the moment. I have a entry level programable thermostat and it has a setting for how many degrees the temp is allowed to climb before the system turns back on, what is considered a normal or optimum setting for that.
Also on a hot day in the summer what is considered a normal run/rest ratio for the a/c. I have what could be called zero humidity so the only priority I have is cooling. I know I aint gonna get optimum conditions from my a/c when the outside temp is 120+ but what about 105-115 should the unit be able to turn off for 1/3 or more of the day?
Thanks in advance for any and all responces.
