Controlling your home’s temperature during the transition between the heating and cooling seasons can be difficult, with cooler temperatures in the evening and warmer temperatures during the day. Here are tips to make at home to save money and energy, while we transition between weather seasons:
- If you have a ceiling fan, make sure the blades are rotating counterclockwise in the spring and summer. Cool breezes from your fan can make you feel cooler and more comfortable at higher temperatures.
- Turn your water heater down a couple of degrees. You’re less likely to notice a difference in water temperature if you adjust the temperature of your water heater now. Most people use water to cool down during warmer months, lessening the need for very hot water.
- Keep an eye on your thermostat since the weather can be so unpredictable. Put your programmable thermostat on a summer schedule. In the summer, save money by automatically turning up the air conditioner at night or when you’re away from home.
- Consider comfort zoning from Carrier. If the second floor of your home feels uncomfortably warm while the first feels too cool during summer’s heat, it might be time to check into zoning. Zoning temperature control is the ideal way to maintain different temperature levels throughout multiple areas of your home at the same time. Zoning systems installed by us deliver air to each zone while enhancing energy efficiency by as much as 30 percent when paired with properly matched heating and cooling products.
