CHECK Your Thermostat

Last Update: January 03, 2020

Temperature Control

When you get home at night shivering what's the first thing do? I crank up the heat, I'm looking for instant warmth but do I get it?

No, I don't get it instantly, why, because it's a process. Just because I've adjusted the wall thermostat to 80 degrees doesn't mean it's 80 degrees right now. You've set everything in motion to get there but it's not there YET. It takes time, the wall thermostat starts the process sending instruction to the gas valve to open and the ignitor to ignite, . The furnace begins to produce heat and the fan motor distributes the heated air and keeps this up until it reaches 80-85 degrees at which time the operating thermostat takes over letting temperature drop about 10 degrees and then it will call for more heat. The furnace will cycle like this keeping temperature at a median of 80 degrees.

Can You Relate

The wall thermostat represents WA and you've set everything in motion by signing up.

Going premium represents the gas valve and ignitor.

Building a solid foundation by course study and task performed is represented by the fan motor distributing your hard work to the internet, now let the operating thermostat take control at the goal or temperature that you've set
