How to Adjust Your Thermostat with Ease
Ah, the thermostat! Known as a staple in homes across the nation, this little device will ultimately control how warm/cool your home will get throughout the day. Of course, you’ll want to adjust the temperature in your space on a daily basis — and we have some helpful tips to do it with ease!
Find the Average Temperature(s)
When it comes to cooling/heating a home, it might seem a tad overwhelming to set your thermostat to the perfect temperature. Of course, you could always raise/lower your current setting — but sometimes that might not always work in your favor.
If you’re looking for the best solution, then it’s best to find the average temperature of the room you’re trying to cool. To discover this, you can directly place a wall thermometer in the space and record the highs and lows throughout the day. Not only will this give you a more accurate temperature reading, but you’ll be able to adjust your thermostat with minimal effort!
Keep it Consistent
Another important tip to keep in mind is to make sure your thermostat’s average temperature is consistent. Nine out of ten times, homeowners will set their device from one extreme to the other. This not only makes your unit inconsistent, regarding heating/cooling your home — but it will make your home feel slightly uncomfortable.
When adjusting your thermostat, you’ll want to set your device at one temperature in the morning, and gradually increase/decrease it throughout the day. This will not only help your unit work efficiently, but it will keep your space comfortable!
Don’t Shut it Off
Believe it or not, it’s best to keep your central air unit running throughout the day. Of course, this could use a reasonable amount of energy — but by keeping your unit on, it will help maintain the most comfortable indoor environment.
One of the best ways to do this is to adjust your thermostat to the highest possible setting. Sure, you’ll want to keep the temperature at a level where your home won’t get too warm — but also remember to set it at a temperature where your unit won’t turn on every five seconds. Once you secure your new thermostat setting, it will be smooth sailing from this day forward!
