The temperatures in Colorado vary widely, so I usually let my thermostat control both the furnace and the AC, but that worked when I could tell it a temperature range to set...when to turn on the heat and when to turn on the AC. Then, I could set a nighttime schedule to allow the house to cool through the night and come back on in the morning, or come on if it gets too cold.
As far as I can see, so far, I'm on setting a narrow sweet spot of +/- one degree. When I tried a setback in the schedule, it fired up the ac to bring the house down to 68 which defeats the purpose of both being comfortable and economical.
If this can be done, please share, otherwise, I can make a couple suggestions.
1. Let me schedule individual heat and cool temperatures in the schedule.
2. In the schedule, allow me to change the heat/cool/heat and cool setting of the thermostat. If I can change to heat only at night, I can set the temp down to 65 or so and let the house cool naturally, then set it back to heat & cool in the morning.
