The Best Fall Temperature For Your Thermostat
Find out how to heat your house at the optimal temperature and how your thermostat may help you save money this fall.
Are you and your partner always arguing about what temperature to set your thermostat to? Good news: we've discovered the best fall temperature for your thermostat that keeps everything warm while still conserving energy.
It might be difficult to keep your energy cost low throughout the spring and fall when the weather is ideal. Due to the unpredictability of the weather and big temperature swings, you may need to set both an upper and lower limit on your programmable thermostat for heating or air conditioning. In contrast, in the winter, you only need to set a lower restriction for your heater, while in the summer, you just need to set a higher limit for your air conditioner.
The following are the best fall temperature for your thermostat for its settings we recommend:
Set your thermostat to 78 degrees Fahrenheit during the day for warmer weather.
If you leave the house, set the temperature to 86 degrees Fahrenheit.
Set your thermostat to 68 degrees Fahrenheit when you're at home and awake throughout the cooler months. When you go to bed, set the temperature at 65 degrees Fahrenheit.
Reduce the temperature to 60 degrees Fahrenheit if you are leaving the house.
In order to get the optimum thermostat settings for spring and autumn, you'll need to set your thermostat to "Auto" and choose the desired temperature.
The "Deadband," which is the temperature range above and below which the HVAC is turned off, is then set.
For example, if you want to chill your house when it's above 78 degrees Fahrenheit and heat it when it's below 68 degrees Fahrenheit, set the thermostat to 73 degrees Fahrenheit and the deadband to 10 degrees Fahrenheit.
You may save money on your energy bill by correctly setting your thermostat in the fall and spring.
We hope these tips will help you use your thermostat wisely no matter the season. Remember: comfort is key, but it doesn’t have to come at the expense of your utility bill.
