Learn the Best Temperature to Set Thermostat in Summer and Winter
All homeowners share a common goal to keep the house comfortable while paying the lowest energy bills possible. The trick is to dress according to seasonal temperatures and set the thermostat properly in both summer and winter.
Temperatures for Different Age Groups
Babies can’t regulate their internal temperatures like adults. You should try to keep the temperature in your baby’s room at around 68 to 72 degrees.
In addition, older family members are at risk of developing health problems when exposed to the cold.
For them, setting the thermostat to 70 degrees during the day and 64 degrees at night is advisable.
For younger adults, 72 degrees is the ideal temperature for maintaining a comfortable environment.
Setting your air conditioner to this temperature also helps ensure maximum productivity while working from home.
You can reduce electricity costs in the winter by setting your thermostat to 68 degrees when people are awake. When everyone is asleep or away, you could turn the temperature down by 10 degrees.
According to the Department of Energy, you reduce your electricity costs by 1 percent for every degree that you adjust your thermostat every eight hours. Therefore, 10 degrees means 10 percent off of your annual electric bill.
Programmable thermostats are more efficient than mercury-based thermostats. They automatically change the temperature according to your preferences even while you’re away. Programmable thermostats come in the following types:
- 7-day programming: This allows you to program different cooling and heating schedules for each day of the week.
- 5-1-1 programming: This will let you schedule temperatures for Monday through Friday and set different schedules for Saturday and Sunday.
- 1-week programming: These maintain the same schedule for the entire week.
