What’s the Ideal Thermostat Setting for Summer?

With an average temperature of 92 degrees, summers in Green Cove Springs, Florida, are HOT. To beat the heat and stay cool, most residents here run their air conditioning systems constantly.

Unfortunately, staying cool often comes with a price. An AC unit that runs constantly uses a lot of energy, resulting in higher monthly costs. To reduce your energy spend while still staying comfortable indoors, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends setting your thermostat to 78 in the summer for optimal energy use.

If 78 degrees feels a little too high for your home, HVAC manufacturer Trane offers a few tips to keep your cool while slowly raising your thermostat settings over time.
