If you own a home, you understand how difficult it can be to find the perfect temperature for everyone. Temperature wars between the members of your household can lead to serious thermostat woes, but hopefully these few tips will be able to help settle the family temperature disputes once and for all.
Practices for Setting Your Thermostat at the Best Temperature
- The first practice for finding the right temperature is actually to make the most people in your household comfortable. Everyone will have a different preference, but the first priority is to make everyone as happy as possible. This may take some mediation on your part…
- The second practice is to change the temperature when you’re asleep or when the house is empty. Changing the temperature by just 5-10 degrees during periods of inactivity in your home can help you save big on our energy costs.
- The third suggestion isn’t so much a practice as an important tool to help maintain the best temperature: a programmable thermostat. If you don’t already have a programmable thermostat in your home, it’s worth the cost of installing one. Programmable thermostats can be set to automatically change the temperature in your home throughout the day. You can set your temperature preferences throughout the day and not have touch it again!
- Another important thing to keep in mind is that some parts of your home may cool down and heat up differently depending on the size and draftiness of your home’s layout. Air conditioning systems with zones can help keep everyone happy! You’ll need to call your local air conditioning company to have them come out and take a look at your home.
While finding the perfect temperature for everyone is not really an option, there is a best temperature (or multiple best temperatures as we mention above) for your home that we can help you find to keep everyone comfortable and save on your energy costs.
