My question relates to Thermostat settings, more related to AC than the heat settings.
I have a small commercial office measuring about 50 Ft long x 28Ft wide, so kind of like a shoebox.
There is one door.
It has 2 thermostats for the 2 AC units & 2Air Handlers; if you divide the office lengthwise, each unit serves each half, not exactly half- the hallway makes the one side maybe 5-10% larger.
For various work reasons that are not able to be changed (example: proximity of the door & the computer & the computer operator to the Thermostat etc), it seem that one unit works harder/ runs more often than the other. Even entering the office after hours, say midnight or 4am, when the heat/ AC has been adjusted for the hours when nobody is present, when I read both thermostats there will always be a 2 degree difference between the 2 thermostats, again meaning that even after hours, the same unit will be on more often than the other.
To me, it makes sense to set the 2 thermostats about 2 degrees different to compensate for this. This would make the one unit that usually works less be On more often & thus help heat/cool the section served by the unit that runs usually runs more often, resulting in that typically harder working unit running a tad less, meaning they will both hopefully run about the same. Why have one unit run quite a bit harder? This sounds logical to me, but I am no expert & was hoping I could get a few opinions.
