Thermostat help

AlfonsoNY Member Posts: 2
Hello guys, I been battling for a while trying to save as much gas as possible thus maintaining a good temperature for me and my tenant (2 story multifamily house). I recently installed a new Sensi thermostat (only in my apartment) and I am wondering which setting would work the best. Please see the 2 pictures and let me know which setting may be better for heating and more energy efficient $$.

    What kind of heating system is it? Steam? Hot water baseboard?
    Hot water with standing CI radiators? Forced air? Does it have any zoning or any other controls besides the t-stat in your apartment?

    Steam radiators, no zones. The thermostat is in my living room.
