Do you have an energy-efficiency furnace? If so, knowing what temperature to set it on will help you to properly utilize your furnace and get the most savings out of your home heating system. Our knowledgeable technicians at Bexley Heating & Cooling want the best for you, your home, and your family. So today, we are diving into a few points that can aid you in discovering the perfect setting to generate more savings while still keeping your home warm and cozy.  

Does the Thermostat’s Position Matter?

The thermostat’s location might be something you have not put too much thought into before. Admittedly, not a lot of homeowners do. That’s why we recommend consulting a technician before installing one. Also, keep in mind that factors such as direct sunlight or warm air blown from nearby vents can mess with the thermostat’s ability to get an accurate reading of your home’s temperature.

Does the Kind of Thermostat Make a Difference?

One thing to consider is that although you may have an energy-efficient furnace if it is not paired with the proper tools, it cannot perform its job at total capacity. So, let’s think about your thermostat. Do you have a smart or programmable thermostat? While any standard thermostat will do the job, using one of these could be more beneficial if you are trying to save energy. If you are considering one of these options, feel free to give us a call. We will send out one of our NATE-certified technicians to discuss and analyze what type may be a better fit for your home and lifestyle.

Does the Thermostat Have a Magical Number?

So what is the magic number that can reduce your furnace’s energy consumption? Experts say that you should keep the thermostat at 68 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter months. 68 degrees seems to be the ideal number that falls right in between keeping the house warm without overdoing it. Doing this results in more energy savings from your home heating system. It sounds like a win all around!
