Northern Virginia experiences hazy, hot and humid summers and winters that produce a mild amount of snow. To stay comfortable and encourage home energy conservation and your monthly savings, , it’s important to know the best thermostat settings. 

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) suggests keeping your home’s temperature warmer than comfortable while away and at 78 degrees while at home. Programmable thermostats make the transition easy because you can cool the house before you walk in the door.

Changing the temperature in your home 10 to 15 degrees for a minimum of eight hours can result in up to 15 percent savings on your monthly utility bills.

In the winter, when the temperatures in Chantilly can dip below freezing, the same rules apply but in reverse. The best thermostat settings for the winter means keeping the temperature at or near a cozy 68 degrees and dropping it 10 to 15 degrees while you’re away to optimize savings.

You might think that your furnace will have to work too hard if it has to warm up your home after you’ve been away for eight hours or more. But, according the Department of Energy, the closer the interior temperature is to the outside, the slower your home loses energy.
