EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – When summer hits, so do the higher electric bills from running the air conditioner in our homes all in the name of keeping cool when the outside temperatures heat up.
Energy Star, the federal program from the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency, recommends for maximum energy efficiency, you should keep your thermostat at these temperatures:
• 78° F when you’re home
• 85° F when you’re at work or away
• 82° F when you’re sleeping
Too warm for you? What do you keep your thermostat on?
