Be nicer to the residents so they stop trying to get even with you.

They will just find another way.


I have a rental house up in the Lake Tahoe area and tenants often crank up
heat to 90 degrees. They will leave after their stay and the furnace is
still trying to maintain 90 degree temperature and is costing me big bucks.
Is there a thermostat that would allow me to set a maximum temperature?

 Put in 2 thernostats in series. Lock the 70 degree one in a locked
cupboard somewhere.

Another idea is to have the second thermostat a smart stat that you
can turn on by phone, and off by phone, so when they leave you call in
and turn the heat down to frostproof

There are password-protected programmable thermostats available -
according to my google search - I can't vouch for them.
