How to Reduce Your HVAC Bills This Winter, Thomasville, North Carolina

Even though the winters in North Carolina are mild, you may still spend more than you like running your HVAC system. To reduce your carbon footprint and lower your winter utility bills, adjust your thermostat wisely, so you don't waste energy. Here are some tips for how to set your thermostat efficiently this winter.

Set Your Thermostat to Save Money on HVAC Bills

1. Lower Temperatures When You Are Away or Sleeping

HVACIf you are like most people, you spend a considerable portion of the day away from home. Before you leave, reduce household temperatures to about 60 degrees. This will keep your home warm enough to prevent freezing pipes, in the event of an unusually serious cold spell. However, it should reduce the amount of fuel you burn to make a noticeable difference in your HVAC utility bills. Do the same thing before you head to bed at night. You likely won't notice the temperature drop for the eight hours or so when you’re asleep.

2. Install a Digital Thermostat

A programmable thermostat makes the above procedures automatic. You simply program in the times and temperature adjustments once, and your HVAC system will automatically raise and lower temps according to your work and sleeping schedule. It is exceptionally convenient and requires only a short service appointment to complete. You can even use a phone or mobile device to change the temperatures when you’re away from home.

3. Cover Up & Dress Warmly

You can save money on furnace expenses even when you are at home and awake. Simply drop the thermostat level to 65 to 68 degrees. If you normally like the environment much warmer than that, wear a sweater or hoodie and sweatpants. This should be plenty to keep you warm while you're moving about. However, when you're watching television or reading a book, you can cover up with a warm blanket.
