You could adjust the dwell so it starts when temp is 3/10 billow setting and stops at 3/10 over the setting. or your heat pump, boiler etc would go nuts
Hysteresis is the term you were looking for. You set your thermostat for 70 degrees. Furnace kicks on at 69 degrees, runs until 71 degrees and shuts off. Doesn't kick on again until 69 degrees. That would be a hysteresis of two degrees. (which would be a pretty sloppy thermostat)

I use the 3/4 inch / 19mm tools interchangeably all the time! And 9/16 / 14mm.
