What is preheating?

Preheating is optional and may be activated or deactivate for each room and challenge in either the morning or evening.

When you activate preheating, the thermostat set temperature is programmed to increase two hours before the start of challenge to accumulate more heat for the challenge.

Quick tips: there is no benefit to heating unoccupied rooms in your home such as the garage or storage areas. Some participants prefer not to preheat the bedrooms before morning challenges since they often leave them before the change in temperature is felt.
