if your furnace is staying on too long, i.e. long cycles, set your
anticipator for higher resistance (= lower current setting ) ...i.e so
it generates more heat in the thermo and shuts the furnace off
if your furnace is short cycling, not staying on long enought, set
your anticipator for a lwer resistance (=higher current setting) so
that is generates less heat in the thermo and lets your furnace stay on
The anticipator is simply a small heat generating element near the
thermosdat that creates a little local heat when the furnace is on...
the adjustment control how much heat and therefore how long it takes
for the thermosdadt to eb "satisfied" then the furnace comes on..
