Achieving round-the-clock home comfort isn’t easy. However, did you know there are different ideal temperatures for just about everything you do? For Martinsburg, West Virginia, homeowners who constantly fret over programming that thermostat, here are some things to keep in mind to ensure your home comfort levels are always optimized:

A Cooler Room Helps You Sleep Better

When we drift to sleep, we experience a mild drop in body temperature that induces our sleep state. Due to this, it’s much easier to fall asleep in a cooler room as opposed to one that’s too warm. On the flip side, a room that’s either too cold or too hot will cause you to wake up, so you need to find that sweet spot. Experts recommend setting your thermostat to around 65 degrees for bedtime.

A Warmer Preset in the Summer Saves Energy

When you want to save money on your cooling bill, keep the thermostat set at 78 degrees. This may seem a little warm, especially in the summer, but think of all the energy you’re saving. You could err on the cooler side and opt for a preset somewhere between 75 and 78. This will still save you money on energy costs in the long run.

Your Wintertime Preset Should Be Cooler

During the winter months, if you’re cold-natured, you probably have your thermostat set to a higher number than recommended. However, most experts suggest you set it to 68 degrees while at home during the day. Lowering the temperature by 10 to 15 degrees for just eight hours a day will reduce your energy bill even more.

Your Office Temperature May Be Affecting Your Productivity

Research has shown the optimal temperature in an office is between 70 and 73 degrees. That’s because this temperature range was actually shown to boost office worker productivity. If you have a home office and need to keep your temperature set to a different number than the rest of the house, opt for a zoned or ductless system to give you more control over your office space.
