I like to keep my house very cool in the summer would a new unit help with cost?
A If you have a 15 year old unit it could be as little as 6 SEER. Most people
set their thermostat around 78 degrees in the summer to save costs and with a
new Trane high efficiency air conditioner you could save as much as $600 per
summer on a typical 4 ton unit while having your thermostat set a few degrees
What are the benefits of a programmable thermostat?A A Programmable thermostat is programmed for when you leave your house and then
return home. The thermostat turns of the furnace during the hours you are not
home so that energy is not used to keep the house warm while you are at work.
The thermostat will then turn back on 30 minutes before you come home so your
house is at the perfect temperature when you are home. These thermostats save
up to 15% on your energy bills during the winter and 10% in the summer.
When I am on vacation should I turn off my thermostat to save money?
settings is 85 degrees in the summer if you have air conditioning and
60 in the winter if you will be gone for a couple of days. These
settings will keep most plants alive and will keep pipes from freezing
and bursting in the winter
