You can customize the way Hilo challenges will be carried out inside your home. If you were cold during your last challenge select the preheating option to gradually increase your thermostats’ temperature settings two hours before the challenge. This allows heat to accumulate in the rooms before the reduction phase begins, improving your comfort level.
At all times, you can also opt for the moderate mode alternative for a lesser temperature reduction during the challenges. However, a lesser temperature reduction will decrease your rewards potential.
You can also remove a thermostat from the challenge by increasing its temperature manually. The challenge will continue, but this action may affect whether or not you’re successful in meeting it.
