Hello, This thermostat can not be adjusted, as it is analog with a reostat temperature controller. Just on and off, heat and cool, and temp up and down. I hope this answers your question.'

It can be adjusted it has two adjustment screws one on the bottom with a spring mecanisim and another in the middle of the unit both can be adjusted to raise or lower the on and off of the heat. Thought you might have some insight
HVAC Technician: Jarrett Baker, Building Inspector replied 6 months ago

wow, that unusual, sounds like a manual adjustment on the reostat. That's great. Did you adjust the screw?
