Benefits of Thermostats

The kind of thermostat you choose can help you save up to 10% on heating and cooling costs annually. Thermostats can be adjusted manually, can be programmed for performance, or can even be controlled over Wi-Fi. Regardless of the type you choose, thermostats serve a vital role in your home with keeping your environment comfortable, healthy, and energy-efficient.

Smart Thermostats

Reduce your energy bills while maintaining home comfort by upgrading to a smart thermostat. Input your smart thermostat settings based on your schedule. By programming setback periods when you are gone or sleeping you can save energy (and money on your utility bill).  Automatic recovery times restore comfortable temperatures in a timely manner, so you are comfortable upon waking or arriving home.

A programmable, smart, Wi-Fi thermostat allows you to monitor and control your home’s temperature from anywhere. Some smart thermostat models come equipped with motion sensors and learning capabilities to maximize the comfort and energy efficiency of your home.

What Homeowners Need to Know About Their Thermostat

Many homeowners are surprised to learn that their air quality hinges on the effectiveness of their thermostat. Air purity, ventilation, and humidity levels are all important factors in assessing your home’s indoor health levels.  A poorly calibrated or malfunctioning thermostat can lead to unhealthy levels of humidity and pollutants in your home environment. Thermostats that aren’t communicating correctly with your AC unit reduce your system’s ability to filter air appropriately.

Take the time to get to know your thermostat. Your thermostat manual or a visit from one of our Caffi Services HVAC experts can help you understand how to get the most out of your thermostat to keep your air quality high and your energy bills low.

Schedule an HVAC inspection to learn how your thermostat compares to the current models available. Contact Caffi Services and learn more about the heating options we offer in Northern Virginia.

Frequently Asked Questions About Thermostats

Which setting on your thermostat should you use for energy efficiency and cost savings?

If you want to save energy and money, the best setting to have your thermostat on is auto. An auto setting means your system will only move air when the cooling or heating is running and will stop when the temperature set point is obtained. An “on” setting means that the blower will run even after the set temperature point has been reached.

What temperature should you set the thermostat on to save the most money?

For most homeowners, a thermostat at 68 degrees in the winter is comfortable and cost efficient. When sleeping or away, lower the thermostat 6 to 10 degrees. If you can turn the thermostat down 10 to 15 degrees for eight hours, you can experience 5 to 15 percent savings annually on your heating bill. In the summer, strive for a thermostat setting between 75 to 78 degrees when you’re home. Turn it up a few degrees when sleeping or away. Use portable fans or ceiling fans when sleeping rather than turning the thermostat down.

What’s better for your budget, a manual thermostat or a programmable one?

The same energy/cost saving goals can be reached with both manual and programmable thermostats IF you use them properly. Programmable and smart thermostats help homeowners manage their systems with more consistency, which can save energy and money.
