Granbury AC Repair Discusses Choosing The Right Thermostat Settings For Your Home

Granbury AC Repair Company, Glenn-Aire, Discusses Choosing The Right Thermostat Settings For Your Home.

From smart phones to programmable thermostats, today’s electronics come equipped with advanced desktop operating systems that make life easier & more streamlined. The challenge is knowing how to take full advantage of the capabilities of these devices.

Consider indoor environment devices like programmable thermostats. Programmable thermostats are able to completely control heating, ventilation & air conditioning (your H.V.A.C. system) and ensure proper temperature control, with energy management.

The secret for total comfort is the homeowner’s ability to control the temperature, humidity, air circulation & energy use. However, while many homes have programmable thermostats, they aren’t programmed or used properly. To utilize the advantages of a programmable thermostat, consider these tips:

  1. Select a thermostat that manages your A.C. properly & efficiently: one which controls all of the equipment in your H.V.A.C. system, including the:
    • Air purifier
    • Humidifier
    • Air conditioner
    • Furnace
    • Heat pump
  2. Have the H.V.A.C. control or thermostat installed by a Trane authorized dealer (such as Glenn-Aire) to ensure  the wiring & settings are designed to match the needs of your specific system and environment.
  3. Choose a program that fits well with your lifestyle, & stay with it. In accordance with the Environmental Protection Agency (E.P.A.), energy can be saved if you keep energy-saving set points activated for longer timeframes. For example, if you work a set, 9-5 type schedule, program your thermostat to activate and shut off when you aren’t home automatically.
  4. Avoid overuse of the temporary  “Hold Feature.” If you consistently  over-ride the pre-programmed settings, you are wasting energy. The E.P.A. suggests that the pre-programmed temperature settings ought to be several degrees warmer or cooler in the summertime & wintertime, respectively, & only used when you’re away from home for an extended stay.
  5. The E.P.A.’s Proper Use Guidelines for Programmable Controls indicate that you won’t heat or cool your house faster by adjusting the temperature on your thermostat to the extremes. Find a comfort zone that works and allow the system to do its job.
