Customer Question
I recently had 10...

I recently had 10 new mears manual thermostats installed in a shore house controlling electric heaters. Two units turn the heaters on at 45 degrees when house temp is 70! Can these be adjusted? Thank you

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?

Specific to the thermostat

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Only if it is a simple fix

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't think so

Do you have the model on the thermostats?

No it is a simple mechanical thermostat

If it is a mechanical thermostat, remove cover and make sure if there is a spring coil, that there is not any type of Styrofoam or packing material that may be preventing the coil from accurately contracting and expanding
