The Florida-based heating, cooling, and air conditioning company is pleased to provide guidance on the most optimal temperatures to set a furnace or air conditioner to, depending on the season.
ORLANDO, FL / ACCESSWIRE / December 1, 2021 / As the seasons change, so do human sensitivities to temperature. Typically, when the weather turns cool outside, people tend to increase the temperature inside their homes. Likewise, when the weather becomes warmer, people usually react by lowering the thermostat. But there's a decision that every homeowner must face each time a new season begins: What setting should I put my heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system to, now? What temperature would be the most comfortable and appropriate for this particular time of year? Is there an industry consensus on the matter? By means of answering these questions, Orlando Air Conditioning Experts presents a short, handy guide to the ideal base indoor temperature for a household, depending on the season.
Late Spring, Summer, and Early Autumn
Factoring in energy consumption and typical human comfort, the HVAC industry consensus is that 78 degrees Fahrenheit (or 26 degrees Celsius) is the ideal base indoor temperature during hot weather. All that means is that it is a good starting point. Individual preferences vary, but for those who are confused about what temperature to set their thermostat at when it's warm outside, it is an excellent place to begin. Obviously, should an occupant of the household find it too warm or chilly, an adjustment ought to be made. It should also be noted that although 78 degrees Fahrenheit is the ideal base indoor temperature during the daytime in spring and early summer, it is not the ideal base temperature for sleeping. Generally speaking, to encourage deep sleep, the indoor temperature should be between 60-68 degrees Fahrenheit (15-20 degrees Celsius), once again depending on personal taste.
Late Autumn, Winter, and Early Spring
On the other side of things, when the weather outside turns cold, the HVAC industry consensus is that 68 degrees Fahrenheit (or 20 degrees Celsius) is the ideal base indoor temperature. Once again, individual preferences will differ, but setting a thermostat at 68 degrees is an excellent starting point from which to make minor adjustments depending on the sensitivities of a household's occupants. HVAC experts also highly recommend lowering the temperature 10-12 degrees Fahrenheit (6-8 degrees Celsius) overnight or if a household is going to be empty for any significant length of time, as doing so can save a homeowner as much as 10 percent every year in heating and cooling costs.
All of these tips are, of course, entirely dependent on the geographic location and general climate of the location of the household in question, and should be adjusted accordingly. For example, those who live in Maine will probably make different tweaks to this information than those who live in Texas. But, taken strictly as a baseline guide, these are the ideal base indoor temperatures for the four seasons.
