Are you interested in learning more about what’s the best temperature to set your HVAC during the year? Especially if you want to save money? If so, you’ve come to the right place!

There’s no doubt that setting your HVAC at the correct temperature is important because setting it too high during the winter, or too low during the summer, is going to cost you more money than it should.

In this article we will provide you with tips on what is the right temperature you should be setting your HVAC at during the year.

The Ideal Temperatures For Your HVAC

During the winter months, you should consider setting the temperature in your home no higher than 72 degrees. Even though it’s temperature may be cooler than you are normally used to, it’s still going to be a comfortable temperature if you also wear a light sweater or use a lap blanket.

When the summer arrives, and temperatures get into the 90’s outdoors, it’s advisable that you keep the temperature in your home set no lower than 78 degrees. This is an optimal temperature because it’s still cool enough in your home to provide you with relief after you step in from a hot day outside and it also guarantees that you’re not going to be running your air conditioner more than it should during the summer just to keep your home cool.

Tips For Saving Money On Your Energy Bill

The first thing that you can do to save money on your monthly energy bill is to use bedtimes and nights out of your home to save money.

What does this mean? This means that instead of setting your HVAC at its normal high or low temperature that you would set it at during the hours when you’re awake, you should consider setting your HVAC at least 10 degrees higher or lower than you normally would when you are either in bed or away from your home for the night.

Sadly, many people will be against sending their HVAC temperature lower when there are in bed at night but the reality is that when you’re covered up by your blankets during the winter months, lowering the temperature in your home by 10 degrees or more will largely go unnoticed by the people who live in your home.

The same is true when you raise or lower the temperature in your home when you’re away from the house at night, there’s no point in having your HVAC system running when you are away so it makes sense to adjust the temperature in your home accordingly so that your system will not be running t0 heat or cool an empty home

Besides the money-saving tips that we vote for you so far in this article, some of the other things that you should consider doing to save money off of your monthly Energy bill include investing in a programmable thermostat and or purchasing a new HVAC system.
