Although Baltimore, Maryland, doesn’t typically start to feel chilly until the tail end of autumn, it’s still important for homeowners to start preparing for the upcoming heating season. If you’ve been trying to determine the best temperature setting for your home this fall, Griffith Energy Services is here to help.

Setting the Thermostat for the Season

Most experts recommend setting your thermostat to 78 degrees during the cooling season. This temperature might be too high for your comfort needs. However, it is the ideal temperature for saving energy and keeping your cooling costs low. This recommended number changes to 68 degrees during the heating season to help keep energy costs in check.

What about fall, when temperatures in our area range from a low of 52 degrees to 62-degree highs? Finding a happy medium might not be easy. Fluctuating temperatures at this time of the year can pose a challenge. It’s not unusual to experience unseasonably warm temperatures between those cool nights and mornings. A good rule of thumb is to keep the thermostat setting as close to the outdoor temperature as possible. Avoid constant thermostat adjustments. Try to keep each new temperature setting for a minimum of eight hours.

Invest in a Programmable Thermostat

Make the changing seasons easier on your entire household by installing a programming thermostat. Programmable thermostats maximize energy usage and accommodate your family’s work, school, and sleep schedules. Once you’ve programmed the thermostat, you won’t have to make any adjustments. Today’s smart thermostats can make automatic energy-efficient adjustments based on the temperature and humidity levels. You won’t have to worry about fluctuating temperatures anymore.

Keeping your family comfortable and avoiding spiking energy costs don’t have to be a struggle. Griffith Energy Services, Inc. is here to make HVAC easier. We’ll examine your system to ensure it will deliver the performance and energy efficiency you need.
