Regardless of your comfort level, it may seem like you will always need to adjust your thermostat up and down. While this is true if you have problems with hot flashes and such, you also have options now where you don’t have to turn your thermostat up and down manually. If you are a customer that finds yourself messing with the buttons all the time, you risk overworking your system, which we want you to avoid. Below, Springfield Heating & Cooling will go over a few helpful tricks and tips on maximizing the most of your energy savings out of your heating system.

What’s the Ideal Temperature?

Picking the right temperature for your home is a task that can turn into an argument with members of your household. However, if you let them know how much money you can save by going by the recommended Fahrenheit, you can say goodbye to one debate around the house.
