Programming Your Air Conditioning Thermostat for Summer Savings
Don’t let your air conditioner cause you to sweat over your electricity bills this summer. Consider a programmable thermostat. This is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to lower your energy bills over the summer. If you need help installing a programmable thermostat or servicing it, we at One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning of Charlotte can help.
When you replace your old thermostat with a new, programmable model, you need to program it to get the most from the unit. These thermostats let you control the temperature inside your house, even when you are not at home. While you are at work, program the thermostat to a higher temperature to save on energy costs. Set the thermostat to a cooler temperature an hour before you get home so you can walk into a comfortable house.
Programming an AC thermostat requires you to know the type of model you have. Some let you insert the same program that repeats every day. Other models allow you to have one program for weekdays and a separate one for Saturdays and a third program for Sundays. You may also find thermostats that let you have a five day program and a weekend program.
No matter how the thermostat arranges programs during the week, you should be able to set the night, morning, and afternoon temperatures for each day. By setting the thermostat to only cool the house when you are home to enjoy it, you can stay comfortable and enjoy real summer energy savings on your electric bills.
Many programmable thermostats can be found at hardware stores and installed yourself, but if you need help with installation or just want to leave it to the experts, we can help.
