Setting the Thermostat for Company

November 30, 2016 | Blog

Setting your thermostat at a comfortable temperature can be difficult any time of year. But, knowing you have house guests for the holidays can make the task even more daunting. The Norman Air team has put together a quick guide to setting your thermostat at a comfortable, energy and cost-efficient temperature so that your holidays can be cozy!

In the cooler months, the energy saving temperature is about 68 degrees Fahrenheit during the daytime hours. Energy.gov reports that lowering your thermostat by 10 to 15 degrees for eight hours each day will help you reduce energy usage by five to 15 percent each year.

Depending on your personal preferences, one idea to keep in mind is lowering the thermostat at night while you sleep. Some people sleep more comfortably in cooler temperatures and those who like to be warm can snuggle up with an extra blanket. If you would like your home to cool off before you fall asleep, turn down the thermostat about an hour before you plan on heading to bed.

Another factor to consider when adjusting the thermostat is whether or not you plan to utilize your fireplace. If you are, turn your thermostat down so your house doesn’t get too warm with both the heater and the fire running.

For some, holidays can be a busy and stressful time. It would be great for it to be an enjoyable and comfortable time for all. Keep the tips we have shared in mind and the next time you have guests, turn the air down a couple of degrees and have some cozy blankets or throws on hand. Your guests will be comfortable and better yet, your energy bill will be reasonable!
