Upgrade Your Thermostat

When was the last time you upgraded your home’s thermostat? If you haven’t upgraded your home’s thermostat in the better part of a decade, then it’s time to do so. This is because smart and Wi-Fi thermostats are more efficient than any analog or older digital thermostat model. This will help you save money. 

Increase Your Thermostat Setting By a Few Degrees

You can save yourself a substantial amount of money by increasing your thermostat’s temperature by just a few degrees. This is because sometimes you might think that you need to set your thermostat to a chilly 68 degrees, but in reality, you’d be just as comfortable at a 72 to74 degree setting. This will save you a substantial amount of money every season. 

Keeping Heat-Producing Appliances Away from a Thermostat

This is a great tip to save–keep lamps, lights, and other heat-producing appliances away from your home’s thermostat. This is a problem because it’s going to throw off the entire balance of your home. If your thermostat is too close to an appliance that gives off heat, it will raise the reading of the temperature in your home and trigger your air conditioner to turn on unnecessarily. 

Keep Your Home As Cool As Possible

Summer heat in Florida is no joke. Make sure that you avoid heating up your home during the hottest hours of the day. When noon rolls around, avoid firing up the oven or even cooking extensively on your stovetop. You might even want to delay drying your clothes. 

We encourage you to push off heat-emitting tasks until later because it raises the internal temperature of your home and makes it harder to cool off your space. You’re only going to make your air conditioner work harder and raise your energy bills in the process.
