Learn how to Maintain the Perfect Temperature at Home


Do you know how to manage your homes comfort level?

First it is important to understand what level of home comfort you enjoy. Do you like it colder in the summer and warmer in the winter, what is the perfect temperature for you and your family?  Keeping your home comfortable while saving money throughout summer can be a tricky balance but with the right information, you can maintain the perfect temperature for your family and help reduce your energy bill!

Setting the Thermostat to the Appropriate Temperature!

During the summer months the ideal thermostat temperature should be set at 78 degrees Fahrenheit when someone is at home, according to Energy.gov. Depending on your family, pets, plants, and age of your family members, your ideal temperature may be slightly different.  In the summer, set your thermostat as high as possible while ensuring you are maintaining your comfort.  The smaller the difference between the indoor and outdoor temperatures, the lower your overall cooling bill will be.

Adjusting temperatures when no one is home and at night, helps saves money!

Energy.gov also suggests raising your thermostat a few degrees when you are away, because why would you want to cool a vacant house? Night time is another opportunity for you to adjust your home temperature slightly so it is closer to the outdoor temperature, reducing your energy cost each month.  The easiest way to adjust your thermostat(s) is to buy a programmable unit. 

A programmable thermostat can help make monitoring your indoor comfort easy and automatic.  This would allow you to pre-set a schedule that best fits your family’s needs.  Some programmable thermostats can store and repeat multiple daily settings (six or more temperature settings a day) that you can manually override without affecting the rest of the daily or weekly program.  When developing your schedule, set the temperature to your ideal comfort temperature prior to your arrival home (~10 minutes or so) so your home is comfortable when you walk in the door. 

Save Money by being savvy with your HVAC unit.

Whatever temperature you and your family decide is the ideal home atmosphere, remember to save yourself the most money by keeping it within range of the outdoor temperature.

They quickly agreed to help, and within three days they had donated time, resources, labor and expertise to help renovate an entire plumbing system for a local home. Teach My People is grateful and blessed for the attention and care that DS invests in their clients and our community!” –- Jessica, Teach My People
