Your thermostat is a key component of your air conditioning. A smart thermostat strategy can help you save on your energy bills without sacrificing comfort. That’s why today we bring you three smart ways to use your thermostat in the summer.
Don’t Go Overboard With the Cooling
Set your thermostat at a temperature that provides comfort, without going overboard. Keep in mind that the smaller the difference between the indoor and outdoor temperature the less your unit will have to work, resulting in energy savings.
Set Your AC to a Lower Temperature When You Are Not Home
When you are away, keep your house at a warmer temperature than when you are home. When you arrive, you can adjust the thermostat to the optimal temperature. This strategy allows you to save energy (and money) while you are away. You can do this manually, but a programmable thermostat can save you the hassle and help you lower your energy bills without even having to think about it.
Avoid Colder Settings Than Normal
Arriving home after spending a hot summer day outside, you may think is a good idea to set your thermostat to an extremely low temperature. Don’t fall to the temptation. This strategy won’t cool your home any faster and it will only result in higher energy bills.
