Título:

Control cycling of home furnace thermostat for max. energy efficiency

Texto:

I have a home that is rarely used in the winter (northern Minn.).  I want to turn down the heat to minimum via the honeywell T-87 (2-wire) thermostat and have it cycle as infrequently as possible.  Two part question:

How does the anticipator work?

Since the thermostat is mercury controlled, could I "unbalance" the unit to go even further down in temperature?

Thank you    Billy
