What should be the ideal winter thermostat setting? You may ask. Well, during winter, set the thermostat to 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
During cool weather, the furnace pump warm air into the room to match the temperature set on the thermostat. Further, the furnace switches off until the room’s temperature falls a couple of degrees. At this point, the furnace starts working again to reach the pre-set temperature. This goes on back and forth.
Remember the higher you set your thermostat, harder the furnace will have to work and in turn, you will receive higher electricity bills.
Setting the thermostat at 60 degrees will keep the air warm enough to help you achieve a comfortable temperature. However, make sure you slip on some warm slippers, throw on a sweater or two, and enjoy your favorite hot drink to keep yourself warm.
However, if you want to lounge around in your t-shirt and shorts during winter, get ready to shell out more money to cover the electricity bills.
