One of the most important components in your home is your thermostat. The location of your thermostat and what temperatures they are programmed for will have a direct impact on your energy bill and how comfortable your home stays throughout the year. A malfunctioning thermostat can also have a direct effect on the health of your air conditioning unit. People who fail to inspect their thermostats can not only be left with a faulty thermostat, but also a broken HVAC unit that can cost a pretty penny to repair when it could have easily been avoided.
Consider Your Thermostat Temperature When You are Away from the House
If you will be leaving your home for the night, turn down your thermostat. If you will be away for a weekend or longer, set your thermostat to a temperature that will not leave your unit constantly running while you are out. Whenever you can raise the temperature of your thermostat during these warmer times of the year you will save a great deal of money on your energy bill and prevent your HVAC unit from running excessively while you are not even home. When your HVAC unit runs constantly, it can over heat and malfunction, costing you a great deal of money in emergency a/c repairs.
Best Location to Install Thermostat?
Many people hardly ever consider that the location of their thermostat is negatively affecting the way that their air conditioning unit is running. A thermostat that is placed is an area that receives direct sunlight, or sits behind any type of electrical appliance is exposed to warmer temperatures than the rest of the house. If you have your thermostat set to 77 degrees and it is registering that it is 83 degrees in your home, but really it is only 76 degrees in your home, then your unit will run constantly because your thermostat is registering temperatures that are warmer than the rest of your home due to its location. Make sure that your thermostat is in an area that will not register false temperatures.
