HVAC thermostat

Did you know it’s actually more efficient to turn your thermostat up a few degrees when it’s sweltering outside?

This may sound counter-intuitive, but increasing the temperature in your home, even by one degree, has its benefits.

  1. It uses less electricity, which therefore saves you money.
  2. It extends the life of your unit. By not making your unit work so hard, it will help your unit last longer.
  3. It helps your body. When you walk in from extreme heat outside and your home is almost frigid, it can shock your body.

If you gradually increase your thermostat each day you will not even notice this transition.
