1 Configure AC Overcool Max

The AC Overcool Max feature allows you to regulate the humidity level in your home even if you don't have a dehumidifier installed. Your thermostat will continue to run the air conditioning past your desired set point by the value selected here. Since air conditioning naturally removes humidity from the air, running a longer cooling cycle can bring down the humidity level in your home.

To Configure AC Overcool Max

  1. Press Menu on the main screen.
    Menu icon highlighted on ecobee screen.
  2. Go to Settings.
    Settings option highlighted in ecobee menu.
  3. Then go to Installation Settings.
    Installation Settings highlighted in ecobee settings.
  4. Select Thresholds.
    Thresholds option highlighted in ecobee settings.
  5. Set the AC Overcool Max value to what you prefer or need.
