Energy Saving Summer Thermostat Settings

June 2014
 

At Cullins Heating and Cooling, we want to make sure that you get the proper heating and cooling throughout your home with the best possible energy savings. Running your air conditioner for too long can cost you a lot of money – and you want to try and avoid that at all costs. For each degree you set the thermostat back, you have the ability to save 1 percent off your electric bill.

Summer Settings

When you are at home, set your thermostat to 78 degrees. When you’re away, either on vacation or even at work, raise your thermostat to 88 degrees. That could mean energy savings up to 10 percent! This difference can save you a lot of money over the course of the season. Using a digital programmable thermostat can help you save money while staying comfortable. Just set it to start cooling your space a little before you arrive home so that you save money, yet still have a nice cool environment waiting for you.

Winter Settings

When you are at home during cold months, set your thermostat to 68 degrees. When you’re not at home for short or extended periods of time, drop the thermostat to 58 degrees. You won’t feel a big difference in the house but your unit will, and that’s where it really matters.

The winter months may not be as cold as you had expected, too – and that’s when you want to keep a close eye on the unit. If you have a fireplace and are going to heat the house using that method, you may be able to turn your heat off entirely for a little while. The savings will be seen when you get your electric or gas bill the following month.

Saving Money

If you’re at work, there’s no sense paying for the heating and cooling of your home. It’s sitting empty and if your unit is running, that’s money that’s being wasted. If you set your thermostat up in the summer and down in the winter for 8 hours a day while you’re gone, the savings can be dramatic. We’re always trying to save you money and when you can set your thermostat more effectively, your heating and cooling unit won’t run as much, and that’s going to save you a bundle.
