Summer days and evenings in Farmington, AR, can become quite hot. Daytime temperatures average between 85 and 90 degrees. It’s important to know how to best set your home thermostat during these months for optimal comfort and to keep your cooling bills down.
Summer Thermostat Setting Recommendations
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you should install a programmable thermostat to schedule your home temperature settings throughout different times of the day and evening, programming temperatures as high as possible for your comfort needs. The recommended daytime temperature setting is 78 degrees during the day when you’re home and as high as 85 degrees when sleeping at night.
Decide on Your Comfort Levels
These guidelines will save on energy costs, but they may feel too hot for your own personal comfort levels. If so, find a happy medium where you can save money on cooling bills and actually enjoy some relief from the summer heat while at home relaxing or getting a restful night’s sleep.
