Utility Savings: Watch Your Thermostat

saving moneyWhen it comes to paying for utilities, many of us do as much as possible to cut down on costs. Did you know one of the smallest parts of your heating and air conditioning systems can help you save big on your utility bills? Monitoring your thermostat can be key in helping you run your heating and air conditioning more efficiently, and cutting your monthly utility bill by about 20%.

Scheduling your heat and AC to perform at optimal levels is crucial to save on utilities. But what level is optimal for your home changes day by day, and often changes even during the day. Will you be out running errands on the weekend, or working 8-5 during the week? Setting your thermostat to heat and cool your home efficiently during these times will help you save bundles, and this is especially simple with programmable thermostats. If you forget to adjust the thermostat before you leave, don’t worry – with many programmable thermostats, there’s an app for that.

Monitoring Your Thermostat

Your thermostats can heat and cool at optimal levels depending on the outdoor temperature and whether or not the house is empty. Bumping the temperature up to about 78 degrees during the summer, and about 68 degrees in the winter, can help you save during the hottest and coolest times of the year!
