You can setback the temperature when you are not occupying that area in cool mode but taking advantage of a programmable thermostat in heat mode will greatly increase the amount of electricity that is used.

The thermostat will usually energize the expensive electric heat strips when a demand greater than 1 degree is present in heat mode.

What thermostat are you using?
We can double check wiring and configuration settings.

I started a new thread for this topic as it had nothing to do with the thread it was attached to.
Sorry for the confusion. Sent the OP a PM on the split.
