How To Program Your Thermostat For The Cooler Weather

It’s no secret that Floridians tend to enjoy warm, balmy weather year round. However, when you start feeling truly cold air here in Florida, you may be tempted to crank up the heat. Here are some tips on how to set your air conditioning’s thermostat for money and energy savings.

Set It and Forget It

By allowing you to “set it and forget it,” a programmable thermostat enables you to set temperatures based on the times you are normally home and adjusts to your habits throughout the day. With a programmable thermostat, you can easily lower the temperature for the hours that you’re sleeping or away at work or school. Similarly, you can set the thermostat to a higher temperature when you wake up in the morning. After all, no one likes to abandon a warm bed to enter a freezing cold house!

For your convenience, many of the top brand thermostats provide easy programming options for different days of the week. Some options allow you to set seven different schedules, while others offer 5-1-1 programming with separate plans for weekdays and each day on the weekend. According to the experts, setting and forgetting your thermostat can save you up to $180 a year in energy costs without affecting your quality of life.

Utilize Remote Programming

Many people forget to turn down the heat or AC before they leave for work in the morning. A benefit of many programmable thermostats is that they allow for remote programming. Use your phone or computer to adjust your temperature settings from almost anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection.

Understanding how best to set your thermostat can be a learning process. However, over time, you will determine the best settings for your home and reap the rewards in both financial and energy savings.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
