Normally the CoolBot is set to allow the AIR temperature in the room to go 1.5 degrees F above and below the set temperature. The product in your room has more mass than air, so it will not be going up and down as much as the air temperature.
Sometimes though, you will see much more dramatic swings in temperature. What are some solutions?
Since this is most likely to happen in small rooms with big a/c's OR in EMPTY rooms - The lack of stuff makes the air temp swing down too low. Once you load it up, this will stop happening. If you're storing flowers adding 5 gal buckets of water helps.
Sometimes people that just want the room to be 50F have this problem as well. It's because the air conditioner is too big for a room kept at that temperature. But don't panic! The above steps will help!
Turn a/c to “Energy Saver” mode (best) OR turn a/c fan down.
The problem stems from the fact that when we tell the air conditioner to turn off, there is still a lot of coolant in the fins, and that coolant keeps spilling into the room. If just putting the air conditioner into “Energy Saver” or “Low Fan” doesn't work, you may have to manually adjust the temperature on the CoolBot UP a few degrees, to account for the Coolant Delay Effect. For example if you want it at 50, you might have to set it at 54F.
We would suggest making just one of these changes at a time so you know exactly what helps. Another step you could take would be to raise the CoolBot heater delay setting.
- Tap the right arrow of your CoolBot to access the "heater" mode
- Tap the check mark three times
- The factory setting is d-1 by raising it to d-2 you are leaving the a/c's compressor off for a little bit longer each cycle
- Tap the checkmark once to lock in the new setting
