HVAC. The large units hanging on the wall are heat pumps and air conditioners. The thermostats on the wall are the controller. Please just select “Too Warm” or “Too Cold” to adjust the temperature. The overhead fan helps stabilize the temperature especially in the loft. Best to let it run all the time. Run the loft fan to move the air to the ceiling fan and down to get cooled. It helps to point the controller at the wall unit when changing the temperature. Press the “Smart Set” button to reset. All units should run in the same mode such as Cool or Heat. If set differently, it will lock out the last unit. AUTO is not recommended during the transition season of hot-cold, heat-air.
