Thermostats: Set Points & Offers

When the weather outside is frightful, it’s time to turn up the heat!

Programmable Thermostat Set Points

When modeling thermostat set points in energy modeling software, the Program requires the use of software defaults. This helps keep predicted savings conservative and in closer alignment with actual savings and realization rates (on average), better managing customer incentive expectations.

For SnuggPro, please select thermostat type (e.g., programmable, non-programmable, etc.) and leave the set-point input fields blank, as this will prompt the software to populate those fields with default range values. Based on weather station and bill data (if available), SnuggPro picks the best values for the modeled building. Desktop QA will be looking to verify the following:

The default thermostat setpoints for SnuggPro (when left blank during input):
Heating (High/At Home) = 64-72 F
Heating (Low/Not at Home) = 60-68 F
Cooling (High/Not at Home) = 76-88 F
Cooling (Low/At Home) = 72-82 F

For OptiMiser, the software uses default values also, based on weather station and bill data (if available). Please do not change them. Desktop QA will be looking to verify the following:
