A programmable thermostat is beneficial for your home. This allows you to set the temperature for what you want, when you want. We can also advise you on what type of thermostat your home would benefit from. Depending on you and your family’s work and home schedule, there is a thermostat that is right for you. There are also other ways to keep your home cool too. A ceiling or box fan causes a wind chill effect that enhances cooling, helping you feel comfortable at a higher temperature as long as the humidity isn’t too high.
It’s more difficult to reach the perfect temperature when you have a window air conditioner. It will not be as consistent as a whole home air conditioner would be. That means getting the right comfort level is more trial and error. Start with it set at 78 degrees and see how you feel. If you have a window unit in your bedroom, turn it on 30 minutes or so before you go to bed so you’re not cooling an empty room. If you notice an issue with the HVAC system, make sure to contact us and we can inspect it for you.
