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