The perfect thermostat setting balances comfort & cost

summer home temp massachusettsWhat’s the best temperature setting for your thermostat during the warmest season? Well, that depends on who you ask and what your priorities are! We all know that the harder your air conditioner has to work to keep your home cool, the more it costs – but at the same time, do you really want to give up comfort to cut costs? Maybe to a “degree” – see what we did there?! – but will it be worth it? Read on to learn some tips for making the most of your AC system’s energy efficiency this summer, and decide for yourself what temperature setting works best for you.

Conflicting advice: Comfort vs. Efficiency

The U.S. Department of Energy recommends 78° as the best temperature to set your thermostat in the summer – and by “best,” they surely mean “most energy-efficient,” since that’s just too warm for some of us, especially in the sweltering heat. Health experts say we sleep better when it’s cooler –as low as 66°, in fact!

Are you tired of feeling the need to weigh your health and comfort against the desire to save on skyrocketing energy bills? You’re not alone. Here are some tips to get your through the summer without breaking the bank – or a sweat while you sleep.
