The numbers on a thermostat can be a point of contention within any family. The most “comfortable” temperature for your home will completely differ between family members. The right temperature has to do with personal preference, as well as individual body chemistry.
The most important thing to consider when regulating your thermostat is your family’s comfort.
But, sometimes the most comfortable temperature won’t agree with your pocket book. For every degree that you lower your thermostat during the fall and winter, the more you’ll save – possibly 1-3% off of your heating bill.
What is the most ideal temperature for your thermostat this fall and winter? Here are the recommendations:
68° F to 72° F during your waking hours or when you’re at home
62° F to 66° F when you’re sleeping or if you’re at work or away for the day
Of course, regulating the temperature of your home is only easily achieved when you have a programmable thermostat. Columbia Heating and Cooling offers premium thermostat appliance options from brands like Carrier. Having a digital thermostat will help keep you and your family comfortable and save you money.
