Attic fan cooling unnecessarily

I woke up early one morning around 5 AM, and checked the Sense app. I noticed that the electrical usage was high for that time of day.
Sense showed that the attic fan was running.

Once I got into the attic, I realized that the thermostat was mounted incorrectly. As a result, the fan was running for much longer than necessary. The solution was to correctly mount the thermostat so that it would turn off the fan at the set temperature.

Share how you used the Sense app to help. Be specific!:
By going to the Devices screen in the Sense app, I saw that the attic fan was running. It should not have been running at that time of the day because it was the same temperature in the attic as outside.
