Thermostat Setting

Set your thermostat lower in the winter and higher in the summer. According to the Florida Solar Energy Center, for each degree below 78 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer and above 68 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter, the energy usage in the home is increased by 10 to 12 percent. Set the thermostat and leave it. Heat pumps, in particular, use more energy if the thermostat is raised in increments of more than 3 degrees at a time in the winter. Adjusting the thermostat by more degrees at once can activate the back-up heat strips to bring up the temperature quickly.

Programmable Thermostats

The installation of a digital programmable thermostat helps to regulate the temperature greatly and reduce the amount of energy used in the home. For the best energy efficiency, thermostat settings should be 78 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit for the A/C in summer and 65 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit for the heat in winter.

Heat Pumps (HVAC System)

The best heating system for Florida is a high efficiency heat pump. The heat pump saves 65 to 70 percent for heating energy use over electric strip heating systems. However, they do need to be serviced every year to maintain efficiency. Faulty relays in these systems can cause both the heat pump and the back-up strip heaters to come on repeatedly in winter and summer resulting in very high energy use. Replacement of older electric strip heat pumps can greatly reduce the winter energy usage.

I just wanted to thank you and your organization for your assistance in restoring my air conditioning. On a moment’s notice, and at the last minute late in the day! The lady that answered the phone and coordinated getting us help, and the gentleman who came over and solved the problem… any business with people like that has to be terrific… Thanks again!
