As with so many things in life, timing is essential for efficiency. Whether you’re thinking about small decisions, such as avoiding traffic during your commute, or larger ones, such as purchasing a new home in a buyer’s market, properly timed decisions can leave the headaches behind. The same is true for your appliances.
Similar to using your sprinkler system before the sun comes up, your HVAC system has optimal times and setting that allows the user to receive the greatest benefit without wasting energy.
Let it run. It may seem counterintuitive to leave your AC unit running, but in fact, you waste less energy by maintaining a consistent temperature. Trying to cool a hot house wastes significant amounts of energy, but maintaining a stable climate is easier on your system.
Keep it consistent. Avoid the temptation of setting your thermostat to have large sways in temperature. By keeping the home within 5 degrees of your desired temperature, your AC avoids wasting energy and supports your energy-saving goals.
Use a digital thermostat. By programming a digital thermostat, you can control the temperature of your home to adjust to your family’s normal schedule and routine. With modern technologies, it is even possible to vary your automatic controls by individual days of the week, depending on your schedule and preferences. A digital thermostat helps you keep your home consistent within the suggested 5-degree variance.
Cutting-edge technology. Incorporating the latest in wifi controls allows homeowners the ultimate control over their energy-saving initiatives. A wifi-controlled thermostat allows you to control the temperature in your house via any device with an internet connection.
