Setting the Thermostat
The most economical operation of your system comes from setting the thermostat properly. Set the thermostat at the highest summer setting or the lowest winter setting at which you are comfortable. (Typical settings are 74 -78 degrees for summer cooling and 70 degrees for winter heating.) When cooling, your operating costs increase from 3% to 8% for each degree your thermostat is lowered. When heating, your operating costs increase for each degree your thermostat is raised.
Buy a Programmable WIFI Thermostat
Seven-day programmable thermostats are best, as they give you the most control over when and how you heat and cool your home every day and hour of the year.
Keep Heat Away From the Thermostat
Make sure no heat-generating appliances are near your thermostat. These include lamps, TVs, stereos, and computer equipment.
Use the 'Auto' Setting
Generally, it is best to set your indoor fan to 'Auto.' This costs less and provides better humidity control in the summer. However, if you desire to operate your system with constant air circulation, it is best to ask for advice from Michigan HVACR.
Change your batteries regularly.
