Cold weather indicates a change in thermostat programs

The change in seasons calls for a change in how you manage your internal climate.

  • There are many factors that can help you set the right climate for your home without wasting energy and racking up the utility bills.

While your regulator’s summertime settings have kept your home cool while preserving energy, this is not an effective method for keeping your home warm while keeping the heating costs at a minimum. Resetting your programmable regulator for the winter can help your home remain comfortable while maximizing your energy usage. For quality heating and air filtration, it is essential to have a high-grade air filter. A programmable thermostat proves to be the best in temperature control. However, one needs to have summer and winter settings and interchange them accordingly. It also works on the new air conditioning units with a 13 and above SEER rating. Well done ductwork sealing also helps in keeping the warm air indoors and cold air outside because of the insulation. There have been great improvements in the air quality systems that now have new heating tools and if regular heat pump service is done, the unit can function effectively and save on energy. Periodic home services can help detect any leakages on the propane boiler and have it fixed before you have carbon monoxide poisoning to deal with. An a/c professional from your reputable local service provider, recommends you set the programmable regulator to set 68 degrees when you are in the house and 7 to 10 degrees lower when you are asleep in order to save up on energy. It is also important to program a setback climate for hours when you are away from the house.
