How exciting!

As a local Heating plus Air Conditioning provider in a small town, I’m always asked what temperature do I have my thermostat set to in the Winter season.  I tell anyone asking, that I always keep my thermostat set to 60 degrees fahrenheit while in the Winter season, plus I happily wear a overcoat inside. In the chilly weather, a oil furnace will pump warmed air into a room until the Heating plus Air Conditioning units’ internal thermometer reaches the recommended, plus preferred temperature control.  Then the heating component 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 sizzling your home, plus to make it more comfortable. Your heater, if worked on properly with the required Heating plus Air Conditioning preventive service, will continue this cycle, over plus over again.  However, the higher the thermostat 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 thermostat has been set to, you will see an increase in your electric bill. Setting the thermostat to 60 degrees will consistently keep enough sizzling air in the rooms for comfort.  At that temperature control, but, you will need to wear a overcoat plus some sizzling bed slippers to stay comfortable plus cozy. In order to save currency on heating costs this Winter season, you should keep the thermostat at 60 degrees, wear sizzling clothing plus consider enjoying a sizzling cup of cocoa in the cool evenings while sitting by the fireplace.
