Customer Question
I have 3 programmable...

I have 3 programmable thermostats in my house. I want to disable the programmable feature on all 3 to allow us to set the temperature and have the system go to heat or cool to achieve it. I want to be able to turn the system off at will. How do I do this

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?

My question is how do I disable the programmable part of the thermostat

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

Yes

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

No all I want to do is to be able to change the temperature at will and have the system decide if it it heat or cool and strive to achieve the temperature. I do not want it to automatically change based on time.
