The Best Temperature Setting While You’re on Summer Vacation

There are a lot of things you have to do before you leave for summer vacation—pack up the car, take out the trash, ask your neighbor to collect your mail—but what about your thermostat? Many homeowners think they can just shut down their air conditioner during their trip, but is that really the best solution? At Arctic Air Conditioning, we’re here with the answer: no! Keep reading to find out why.

The Benefit of Leaving Your AC On

When you leave for vacation, you should actually set your thermostat to 80 – 85 degrees. So what is the benefit of keeping your air conditioner running compared to shutting it down?

  • It’s better for your home – with the AC shut off, your home could turn into a humid oven while you’re gone—something that isn’t good for your wood floors or furniture. It can actually cause a lot of damage to the wood throughout your home, causing it to expand, crack, or buckle. Keeping the temperature controlled will prevent this from happening.
  • It’s more energy-efficient – surprisingly, if you’re gone on a week-long vacation, this can actually be more energy-efficient! Keeping your home at a consistent 80 – 85 degree temperature generally costs you less than it would to try and bring your home down to 72 degrees after the thermostat hits triple digits.
  • If you have a programmable thermostat, it’s convenient – with the help of a programmable thermostat, you can simply set the temperature for the week while you’re away, and schedule it to turn down to 72 the day before you get home—that way you’ll never have to worry about being uncomfortable! Don’t have a programmable thermostat? The experts at Arctic Air Conditioning can help you out—check out our programmable thermostats »

Don’t forget to keep your curtains and blinds closed while you’re away, too. That will prevent the sunlight from coming through your windows and increasing the temperature in your home.
