What should I set my thermostat at for each season?

You can easily save energy in the winter by setting the thermostat to a comfortable temperature when you’re at home and awake, and lowering it to a cooler, but acceptable, temperature when you’re asleep or away. • In the summer, you can follow the same plan with central air conditioning by keeping your house warmer than normal when you are away, and lowering the thermostat setting to a more comfortable temperature only when you are at home. • If you have a programmable thermostat, you can set it to automatically make these adjustments at different times during the day to match your typical behavior and maximize your savings with a minimum amount of effort.

What are SEER ratings?

When an HVAC unit works efficiently, it will consume less energy as it makes your home feel comfortable. A factor that helps you determine an air conditioner’s efficiency is its Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating. An A/C’s SEER rating relates how much energy and money the unit will use during operation over the course of a year. Understanding what this rating means for you before an A/C installation will help you make an informed decision about the cooling unit that best meets your needs.
