As a local Heating plus A/C provider in a small town, I’m consistently asked what temperature do I have our control unit set to in the winter. I tell anyone asking, that I consistently keep our control unit set to 60 degrees fahrenheit while we were in the winter, plus I happily wear a sweater inside. In the cold weather, a furnace will pump warmed air into a room until the Heating plus A/C units’ internal thermometer reaches the advised, plus number one temperature control. Then the heating unit turns off until the temperature in the room falls back down a couple of degrees. At that point, the furnace will beginning up again, coming through the heating vents to your home, plus to make it more comfortable. Your heater, if ran tests on properly with the required Heating plus A/C preventive maintenance, will continue this cycle, over plus over again. However, the higher the control unit is set, the harder the furnace must toil to heat your entire house. The furnace works harder to arrive at that higher preset temperature control. With every degree higher that the control unit has been set to, you will see an increase in your electric bill. Setting the control unit to 60 degrees will respectfully keep enough air in the rooms for comfort. At that temperature control, but, you will need to wear a sweater plus some bed slippers to stay comfortable plus cozy. In order to save money on heating costs this winter, you should keep the control unit at 60 degrees, wear clothing plus consider enjoying a warm cup of cocoa in the cool days while sitting by the fireplace.
