Should You Reduce Your Home Temperature at Night?

There are a number of reasons why you should be keeping your home’s HVAC in good condition. Not only does a poorly kept HVAC system heat your home poorly during the winter season, it will also work much less efficiently, which means your heating bills could end up sky rocketing. If that isn’t enough for you to put the effort into maintaining your HVAC system, a poorly kept system will end up with a shorter lifespan and could require more costly repairs than normal. So what are some of the things that you can do when it comes to keeping your home’s HVAC in good condition? For one, reduce your home temperature at night.

Your furnace is going to have to run in order to keep your home at a warm temperature during the winter. It will need to run continuously to keep your temperature above the outdoor temperature. This means that the higher the temperature is that you’ve set in your home, the longer your furnace will need to run and the harder it will need to work. This is especially true since your home is going to be losing that heat unless you’ve taken great pains to insulate your home as much as possible.

This is basically why you should lower your temperature at night. Nobody is using your home – everyone should be in bed. You can keep warm with your blankets, which means that you really don’t need the house temperature to be in the upper 60’s or lower 70’s. By lowering your temperature at night, you’ll help reduce the energy you are using. This causes less stress on your HVAC system in addition to reducing your heating bills. Yes, turning your thermostat back up does take up energy, but you’ll end up saving energy in the long run by lowering it to at least 60 degrees Fahrenheit at night.

If you are looking to keep your HVAC system in good shape, then you should lower your temperature during the night in order to save energy and to reduce your heating bills.
