Now that summer has officially begun, many St. Louis area homeowners are thinking about their air conditioning systems and how to get the most “bang for their buck” this summer. One of the most important things to consider when it comes to saving energy while keeping your home comfortable is your home’s thermostat settings. Today we’re going to guide you through choosing the optimal thermostat settings for saving money while staying cool in your home.

Optimal thermostat settings based on your preferences

The thermostat settings you choose will depend on what you want to get out of your air conditioner. Here are some recommended guidelines based on your priorities:

Once you figure out your optimal thermostat settings, stick to them!

After you know your optimal thermostat settings, be sure to stick with them throughout the summer. With a programmable thermostat, you can store your settings for different times of the day and have them change automatically.

Also, try not to set your thermostat lower than usual in an attempt to cool your home faster. Your home will cool at the same rate no matter what your thermostat is set at, so lowering your thermostat unnecessarily will just waste energy and put more of a strain on your unit!

If you have any questions about the optimal thermostat settings for your home, or if you’d like to have a cooling system serviced or installed, contact Jerry Kelly, your St. Louis air conditioning company. We service the St. Louis area, including surrounding towns like Ballwin, Chesterfield and Clarkson Valley.
