Handy Hint #2
Lower Your Heat or Turn Down Your AC
It's no mystery that keeping your thermostat in check will help save money. It is estimated that you can save 1% for every degree you adjust up or down.
Three key things to remember:
- Don’t crank your thermostat up or down to heat or cool your home faster—it does not work.
- Change your thermostat temperature setting when you’re away from home for 8+ hours.
- Don’t constantly change the thermostat setting when you’re home—it wastes money.
