When the temperature dips, it might be time to turn up the heat! But if you crank up the thermostat or blast the electric fireplace, it will also boost your electric bill.
Similarly, when the summer sun is too much to bear, an air conditioner can help keep you cool. But keeping a frigid temperature in the middle of summer is expensive.
Remember that your home is meant to stay comfortable, but not the same temperature year round and not the same temperature in every room. Our bodies are made for seasonal temperature changes.
→ Let your thermostat float down to 68ºF in winter, and lower if you’re sleeping or away and in rooms you’re not actively using.
→ In summer, let your thermostat rise to 78ºF, and higher if you’re away and in unused rooms.
→ Make comfort and energy saving easy with a smart thermostat or a line-voltage thermostat for zonal heating and score a rebate.
