Playing with the thermostat might sound like an easy way to get warm. The truth is much more complicated than that. For one thing, when you turn up the thermostat, you are spending more money than you might think. Staying warm is important, but sometimes it makes more sense to bundle up by wearing sweaters, socks, and slippers. Cozy up with a blanket and your favorite hot drink because it’s time to address some all-too-important energy efficiency concerns!
Let the HVAC Rest When You Do
The quickest way to reset your thermostat is to change the habits you have based around it. It’s simple enough to leave it alone throughout the day and switch it on or off as needed. That’s not what the issue is, typically speaking. Here’s a good piece of advice: let the HVAC rest whenever you do. This tip holds up whether you are going to bed or heading out to the grocery store to grab some much-needed supplies. Thermoneutrality can help you sleep better at night, which is essential for good health. Plus, you’ll have more energy to get you through your day – now isn’t that nice? For those cold winter nights, be sure to put on more layers or nest under a larger pile of blankets and comforters!
Set Up a Programmable Thermostat
In some cases, you won’t have a choice of what thermostat is in your house. This setup is an unfortunate reality for most rental properties. However, when you own your home, you have a degree of control and flexibility to choose what you want. To that end, consider setting up a programmable thermostat with digital displays and the ability to control temperature settings via your smartphone or other mobile devices.
Find a More Comfortable Temperature
Sometimes, you’ve just got to run some quick experiments – as long as your family is game, that is. One way to accomplish this is by figuring out which temperature is the most comfortable for everyone. Change the settings around every few days throughout one week and see which ends up being the best for everybody under your roof!
