What You Should Know About Thermostats

Posted on: October 4, 2017


Thermostats might seem like an easy thing to navigate, but that’s not always the case. A thermostat should not only help you control your home’s temperature but it’s efficiency too. They’ve come a long way over the last few years, so here’s what you should know to make the most out of your thermostat today.

What You Should Know About Thermostats

Drastic Temperature Changes Can Cost You

You may think that cranking your AC will help cool down your home faster, but it won’t. Not only will you be cranking your unit for nothing — you’ll also be wasting energy. When you waste energy, you are also wasting money, so to keep your home cool and energy efficient, stop the drastic temperature change.

Programmable Thermostats Will Save You

If you are looking for a thermostat that can keep your home cool and save you cash, a programmable thermostat is your best bet.  Many smart thermostats will learn your patterns and can even alert you when your HVAC system isn’t as efficient as it should be. Another great feature — you can change your temperature from wherever you are with just a click on your cell phone.

Find The Perfect Temperature

Knowing your at-home temperature and your away temperature can be a great money saver and the best way to keep your home comfortable. Lowering your temperature by 7 to 10 degrees for part of the day can help you save some cash. Don’t forget to keep vacations and long weekends in mind, too! There is no need to keep your home cool when it’s empty, but don’t shut your AC off completely either. Instead, keep the temperature around 75 when no one’s home.
