Information to assist you in enjoying your stay at The Craigs' Coastal Cottage
We have an Ecobee Thermostat in both the living area and the bedroom floor. To change the temperature, just place your finger on the temperature within the circle (as shown as 76 in the photo) and move the number up or down. When you adjust, it will change to your temperature and stay that way for four hours.
The normal thermostat temperature is set for 73 or 74 degrees in the living room degrees during the day and 75 degrees during the day and 69 at night in the bedrooms. If this is uncomfortable for you, email me and I can adjust. You can manually adjust also as discussed above.
If you come in from the beach and it seems warmer than 73 degrees that is because it senses when you leave and when you return. It will come back on when you arrive and go back to 73 degrees.
You may notice in most rooms a little square box on the walls about 2 inches wide by 2 inches. They are temperature sensors for the cooling system. Please do not touch them.

PLEASE MAKE SURE THE REFRIGERATOR’S TEMPERATURE SET AT 37 DEGREES (NOT LOWER). According to a technician that actually makes it NOT work as well if it is set lower. HERE IS A TIP: If you have bought or brought several canned drinks, put them in the freezer first for 25 minutes or so. Then move them to the refrigerator. Putting several room temperature drinks in the previously empty refrigerator takes a long time to get cool.
