What Thermostat Temperature Is Best For The Winter?

November 30, 2023

As the temperature drops, most people begin pondering the question of exactly how warm they should keep their households throughout winter. While the answer will vary slightly from home to home, there are several factors that can help you decide the best temperature range for your home thermostat. At Colair, Inc., we provide heating unit inspections, repairs, and installations in Mission, Edinburg, and McAllen TX as well as surrounding areas.

Thermostat Tips For Cost Savings

To save on your heating bill this winter, aim for a lower temperature range. The ideal thermostat settings for cost savings is 68 degrees when you are awake and 62 degrees overnight while sleeping. If you are not yet accustomed to maintaining indoor temperatures within this range, try setting your thermostat to a desired high temperature. Then lower the temperature range by 1 degree each week, and maintain lower temperatures for at least eight hours each day.

Programmable Thermostats For Energy Savings

Installing a programmable thermostat can help lower your carbon footprint and save money. To reap the greatest benefits from using a programmable thermostat, choose a model that is flexible enough to match your heating needs according to your daily routine and easy enough for the members of your household to use it properly. We can help you choose a programmable thermostat that will seamlessly adjust to heat and cool your home as needed to maintain your target temperature range.
