Ideal Thermostat Settings for Every Season
Being conscious of the thermostat settings in your home will ensure that you are paying the absolute least possible when your utility bills come rolling in. Even a difference of a couple degrees will have a huge impact on your energy consumption throughout the year.
To make this process as easy as possible, call your local HVAC company and ask to have a new programmable thermostat installed. The technician will gladly show you how to operate the system and set the temperature to exactly what and when you need it to.
Summer Thermostat Setting
The hottest time of the year means you will most likely be spending quite a lot of time indoors. Rather than crank the air conditioning so it is like a freezer box inside, set the thermostat to 77-79 degrees, and then turn on some ceiling fans. The circulated air will feel much cooler than it actually is, allowing you to be quite comfortable without the need to drain huge amounts of energy to keep the interior cool.
Fall Thermostat Setting
When the fall season approaches, no need to worry about making any adjustments at all to your thermostat. The few weeks after summer you may actually get some days of extreme heat, so it is a good thing the cool settings are still in place. keep the thermostat as is until the weather takes a turn for the cold. When you reach the end of fall, you will want to move the switch to heat and set the thermostat to 68 degrees.
Winter Thermostat Setting
Now that winter is here, make sure your thermostat is in the heat setting at reading 67-69 degrees. You can save even more money by reducing the temperature to 66 at night while you sleep. Being under all those blankets, sheets, and comforter, you will be as warm as you need for the evening. By morning the programmable thermostat will kick back to 69 and have the house nice and comfortable for you.
Spring Thermostat Setting
When spring approaches, leave the heat setting as is because you will experience some chilly days all the way through spring. Some mornings may still have frost on the windows in certain parts of the country. Once the heat of spring arrives, you can go back to the cool setting and raise the temperature reading to 78 degrees.
