1. A system for reducing the usage of a ventilation system comprising:

  • a thermostatic controller having at least two settings for the delay enforced by said thermostatic controller after said thermostatic controller turns said ventilation system off prior to allowing said thermostatic controller to signal said ventilation system to turn on again, one setting being for a first interval, and at least a second setting for a second interval that is longer than said first interval;

    a processor in communication with said thermostatic controller, the processor configured to evaluate one or more parameters including at least the temperature outside the structure conditioned by said ventilation system, and to determine whether to adopt said first interval or said second interval based upon the values of said parameters.
