Understand Your Thermostat For Winter Savings

It happens every year whether we’re ready for it or not. Winter brings with it cold temperatures, and it’s up to us to prepare our furnaces for the often extreme weather to be expected. Most of us are aware of the basic maintenance techniques to employ as we get ready to fire up the heater such as changing dirty or clogged filters and checking for unusual sounds. However, there are some simple keys to significant savings. By better understanding your thermostat, you can tap into the ability to save even more as freezing temperatures quickly approach.

Keeping Fuel Bill Low

The fuel bill during the winter months can get high, and area residents often cringe at the thought of seeing the first one in the mailbox. In order to make the most of your money this winter, understanding your thermostat and how its settings impact your usage is crucial. Some simple tips to employ include:

  • Lowering the thermostat to 55 degrees if you’re going to be away for an extended period of time as this lowers usage without the risk of freezing pipes.
  • Lowering the thermostat 10 degrees when you go to bed since you’ll have plenty of body heat to rely on under the covers. You can increase it when you wake up and prepare for your day.
  • Motivating yourself to embrace a lower thermostat setting. For example, a cooler setting causes the body to burn more calories thus enabling you to lose weight over the winter.
