The difference between fan settings:
The difference between “cool” and “heat” thermostat options are obvious, but the fan settings will control how the fan blows after the system is off. If you turn the fan to “on”, the blower will continue to run after the system is turned off, but if you set it to “auto”, it will allow the blower to run off and on intermittently in time with the heating or cooling system.
How does your thermostat affect your home?
If you are using your thermostat correctly, you will be able to better control the indoor air quality of your home, which is a vital part of comfort and health. Did you know that inside air can be more polluted than the outside? To combat this, keep your thermostat set to the “on” position for continual airflow. This will cause the air to flow through the filter in the furnace more, ultimately boosting the quality of the air that enters your home.
