Follow These 5 Thermostat Tips

If you recently installed a programmable thermostat, you can expect to save money on your utility bills—but only if you use it properly! Here are a few thermostat tips to help you achieve the greatest savings possible.

Tips for Using Your Thermostat Efficiently

Choose a Model that Works for You

Different types of programmable thermostats are available. Some let you create unique settings for every day of the week or set weekends differently from weekdays. Others have a single setting that applies to every day. The model you choose should fit your family’s schedule.

Program Temperature Setbacks

When you leave home for the day, set the temperature back 7 to 10 degrees to prevent paying to heat or cool an empty house. You get the most savings from this thermostat tip if you’re gone for eight hours or more at a time. Also set the temperature back at night when you’re sleeping. Be sure to include settings that bring the temperature back to normal before you arrive home or get up in the morning.

Use Overrides Sparingly

You can always override the programmable thermostat settings to adjust the temperature if you feel hot or cold, but don’t do this too often or you’ll negate many of the savings that programmable thermostats provide.

If you must override a setting, change the temperature by only a degree or two. The best thermostat tips suggest that you shouldn’t crank the temperature drastically up or down because this won’t heat or cool your home any faster.

Use Zoning to the Fullest

If you have zoning controls in your home—meaning multiple programmable thermostats control the temperature in different rooms—remember that each one must be programmed separately for maximum comfort and energy savings. For bedrooms that remain unoccupied during the day, set the temperature back in these rooms and close the doors. Do the opposite at night, setting the temperature back in common areas when everyone’s asleep in their rooms.

Change the Batteries

Many programmable thermostats run on batteries, so to prevent running out of power, make it a habit to change the batteries yearly. Some units alert you when the batteries are running low, and they should be changed as soon as possible after this alert appears. Watch the video below to learn how to change the thermostat’s batteries:
