Boost Comfort & Energy Efficiency with the Right Thermostat Settings



Lexington weather hasn’t been too cold yet, but surely temperatures will drop before we know it. A big complaint of homeowners and business owners in our area is just how costly it is to heat buildings in the winter! Well, we’re here to show you just what thermostat settings will help you save money this winter without giving up cozy indoor comfort.

If your home or business is occupied

When everyone’s home or business is bustling, your thermostat settings will be higher to keep everyone comfortable. The temperature doesn’t have to be scorching – a simple 68 degrees is a sweet setting that keeps interiors warm at maximum efficiency.

If your home or business is vacant

When no one is around, turn back your thermostat by 10 to 15 degrees to generate great savings! For every degree you turn back your thermostat over eight hours or more, you’ll save 1 percent on your heating bills. With a setback of 15 degrees, you stand to save 15 percent!

If everyone is sleeping

During sleeping hours, you can turn back your thermostat by a few degrees to save energy. Sleeping bodies will stay comfortable with temperatures between 62 and 66 degrees.

Save energy simply

If you don’t already have one, now is a great time to upgrade to a programmable thermostat. A programmable thermostat allows you to preprogram temperature setbacks – when the time comes, your thermostat will adjust the temperature automatically. Remove the human error which is responsible for so much energy waste with the help of your home or business’s thermostat. There are many different models available, so you’ll be able to find one that allows for the number of temperature adjustments you need.

Climate Control will help you select the right programmable thermostat which will allow the temperature setback schedule you desire. Contact us today to schedule your free estimate and learn more!
