San Diego Air Conditioning - Thermostats & Tips for Efficient Cooling


temperatureA great way to save money on San Diego air conditioning is by simply resetting your thermostat when you are asleep or away from home. By installing a programmable thermostat, you can do this automatically without sacrificing comfort!

San Diego Air Conditioning Tip:

Programmable thermostats save money and energy

With a programmable thermostat, you can adjust the times you turn on the air conditioning or heating according to a pre-set schedule. Programmable thermostats can store and repeat several daily settings that can also be manually overridden without erasing the settings for continued use.

How to set your thermostat to save on your utility bills while staying cool

To set thermostats properly, especially programmable thermostats, set the temperature up for 8-12 hours out of 24 hours in a day, and you will see significant energy-cost savings. Set your programmable thermostat to about 10-15 degrees warmer for a specific period during the day (like while you are at work), and have it automatically lower them temp before you get home (we recommend nothing below 75°F). Using programmable thermostats, you can cool the home before you get there, so you don’t have to worry about coming into a hot house after a day out in the sun.
