HVAC System at the Captain Morse House
Here is an explanation of how the BAYWEB thermostats run.If you see LO on the thermostat it means it is locked and cannot be adjusted by the user. Let us know if you are not comfortable and we will adjust the automatic settings until you are.Never set the Fan to ON – only use Auto
There are four thermostats in the house. 2 each on 1st, and 1 each on 2nd and 3rd.
If you activate the thermostat (Press COOL or HEAT to start) make sure ALL windows and doors are closed and all other thermostats are either off in the same state, either all COOL or all HEAT.
You may not need the HVAC system at all during your visit. The system wasn’t needed at all in the previous 170 years of the house.
If you wish to open the windows and doors for the natural island cooling breezes please TURN OFF all thermostats.
Please close windows and doors if rain approaches.
Automatic Cooling Settings
When you are away the setting for cooling is 77 degrees
When you return it will automatically sense that and lower to 73 degrees
For sleeping it is set to 73 degrees for the duration of the night.
The attic is NOT insulated and will not cool except for sleeping at night.
For sleeping at night it will lower to 74.
More effective cooling may be possible via the roof fan and windows especially during the day
Automatic Heating Settings
When you are away the setting for heat is 63 degrees
When you return it will automatically rise to 67 degrees
For sleeping it is set to 64 degrees
Humidity is controlled via the first floor front and 2nd floor thermostats
The system will automatically run if indoor humidity is above 50% but will turn off in the room temp falls more than 2 degrees below the current automatic set point to prevent compressor damage.
For comfort optimal indoor humidity levels should be between 35 and 55 percent.
