How to Save Energy by Using Your Thermostat
"How well are you using your programmable thermostat? Think about when your family wakes up, leaves the house and goes to bed. Then, set your thermostat to change temperature at these times. Realize winter savings by programming your thermostat to drop by eight degrees when you’re away and when you’re sleeping. In the summer, increase the temperature by seven degrees when you’re away and by four degrees when you’re sleeping. And never override your thermostat or place it on hold. Turning the temperature way up or down won’t make your system heat or cool faster, but it will make it work overtime and wreak havoc on your energy bills. Ask us, the Westinghouse HVAC experts, how to optimize your settings during your next pre-season checkup. It could save you as much as $180 a year. "
Choosing a Thermostat That Fits Your Needs
With so many kinds of programmable thermostats available, how can you begin to choose? Think about your family’s schedule and how often you are away from home for activities like work and school. If your routine changes every day, consider a 7-day model with the flexibility to set different programs each day. If your schedule stays the same during the week, but differs on the weekend, a 5 + 2 model could be the right option for you. For those who keep one schedule Monday through Friday, another on Saturdays and a third on Sundays, 5 + 1 + 1 models work best. Call us, the Westinghouse HVAC experts, for advice on selecting and installing the right programmable thermostat for your lifestyle. You could be saving as much as $180 a year!
Alternatives to Harsh Cleaners That Impact the Air You Breath
Household cleaners contain chemicals that impact the quality of the air you breath every day. As an alternative, consider natural cleaning agents such as baking soda and white vinegar, or a brand of cleaner with specially formulated non-toxic ingredients. As Westinghouse HVAC experts, we can recommend products and practices to improve the air quality of your home. Call us for a consultation today.
