As a homeowner, we would like to buy all the popular gadgets and latest technology possible, especially when it comes to saving money on your monthly utility bills. The idea of saving money gives us all a smile. However, doing your own fair share of research is vital. Mainly because you’ll find out that not all products on the market can save you money; with that being said, let’s take a look at what to pay attention to. For example, when looking for an efficient thermostat for your residential furnace and air conditioning, you’ll want to pay attention to its temperature and how to adjust it. Check out what our expert technicians at Lebanon Heating & Cooling have to say about helping homeowners save time, energy, and, most importantly, money. 

What Kinds of Thermostat Models Are There?

Before buying a washer and dryer, you may ask which brand is the most popular or most efficient. This goes for your thermostat as well. It is an important question because the tools you use around your home should be easy to utilize to your advantage. First, let’s go over the type of thermostats. There are four basic types of thermostats: Non-programmable, programmable, Wi-Fi, and smart. A thermostat can help keep your home comfortable and control energy usage. In addition, your choice of a thermostat will depend on how you want to use the thermostat and the features you want available. The best one to choose is the one that seems to fit best for your home’s needs and what will help provide you with all the tools you need and, of course, be easy to navigate through.

How Should I Set My Thermostat?

According to Energy Star, setting your thermostat to 68 degrees Fahrenheit when you’re home is the ideal balance of comfort and energy efficiency. Also, this is something you can schedule on your thermostat throughout the night or while you aren’t home, so you won’t have to worry about turning your thermostat up and down. 

Does Placement Matter?

You may be thinking putting your thermostat based on your furniture in your home is the best option, but unfortunately, it’s not. Where you place your thermostat is essential because it will affect how it reads your home’s temperature. The best place for your thermostat is on an interior wall, away from air vents, your kitchen, hallways, windows, and doors—any areas connected to sunlight you do not want your thermostat. Our professionals can help with what location works best for your home, but Ideally, it should be placed toward the center of your home. 

Saving money and energy is key to a happy home for most homeowners. But, on the other hand, no one wants to break the bank if you don’t have to. Our knowledgeable and professional technicians would love to assist with finding which thermostat is right for your home.
