Adjust Thermostat Temperatures

Tips to improve your home and lower your energy bill


Many commercial buildings have thermostats set cooler than need be in the summer and warmer than need be in the winter. Every additional degree of heating or cooling requires exponentially more energy.

 

 

What you need to do

If you can raise the thermostat a few degrees in the summer or lower it a few degrees in the winter, you save big without sacrificing employee comfort. Also raise or lower the thermostat at night and during the weekends when employees are likely to not be in the building.

Using and spending a few minutes learning how to set a programmable thermostat may save you hundreds of dollars! Dropping the temperature by seven or eight degrees in winter and raising it by seven or eight degrees in the summer will maximize your savings. A programmable thermostat automatically raises or lowers the temperature at set times of day, turning down the heat while you are away, for example. It can save 5-20 percent on heating and cooling bills while giving you a more comfortable work place. A programmable thermostat can be purchased at most hardware stores and installed yourself in under an hour if you are comfortable with connecting a few wires. Follow the manufacture directions from your purchased programmable thermostat. If you prefer, you can have a certified professional complete the installation.
