With these extremely high temperatures, many people are blasting their air conditioners. My family, in particular, will be taking total advantage of our home’s A/C. With the heat index climbing so high, we are virtually forced to remain inside with the coolness of our well air conditioned dwelling. Who wouldn’t want to sit indoors in our area of the far south? It can most certainly be a health issue if you don’t remain in air conditioned environments in this area. However, I worry that we aren’t using the A/C in the most efficient way possible? I keep a very close eye on the temperature dial and will adjust it as needed. So, it was only natural to consider taking it out for a newer programmable temperature dial. I felt since I was constantly lowering the temperature control to keep our house cooler, I was not using the A/C to its’ highest efficiency. Why should I be manually lowering the temperature on the old temperature control? Especially as a programmable temperature thermostat will manage our temperature control for us . I recognize that it is optimal to set the temperature control at the preferred temperature control, then leave it alone. However, I was not doing that, instead I’ll let a new temperature control take care of all heating and cooling adjustments. I’ve researched temperature controls quite a bit online, both smart thermostat controls and programmable ones. So I am fairly educated about the subject. The newer temperature controls have a wide variety of different colors, and they are fast to learn our habits. That is a wonderful thing, since we love it undoubtedly cooler around here.
