Texas weather can be all kinds of tricky. For instance, we skipped fall this year and went straight to winter! But don’t worry – we’ll eventually get our typical fall weather. You know the kind – you leave the house bundled up in the morning but by the early afternoon you’re sweating and ready to come home to a cool house. With that kind of weather, how do we know where to set our thermostats?
Set thermostat between 70-78 degrees
According to Energy Star, the best temperature to set your thermostat at during the fall season is somewhere between 70 and 78 degrees, depending on the temperature outside, of course.
While it’s best to keep your home temperature between 70 and 78 degrees, it’s also good to keep in mind that we are in Texas. The weather can cool down fast and heat up even faster. So to save money and be more energy efficient, Champion AC recommends you invest in a Nest Pro thermostat, which learns your tendencies and patterns and adjusts the thermostat accordingly.
Invest in a Nest Pro
If you’re always on the go, the Nest Pro learning thermostat is perfect for you. This way, you won’t have to worry about changing the temperature constantly on your own – and you can leave it up to your Nest Pro. This is the easiest way to remain stress free about constantly changing the temperature in your home. Plus, you save energy and money at the same time!
Even though fall can be tricky in Texas, knowing what to set your thermostat at can be the key to remaining comfortable during the changing temperatures. If you want more information on your home’s energy efficiency during colder weather, give Champion AC a call and we can help.
