What is your thermostat set for? In many homes, this is a cause for contention, especially if you have different ideas of what constitutes a comfortable temperature. Every degree difference on your thermostat will make a difference on your energy bill at the end of the month. Your thermostat might, however, be part of the problem. If you have an old thermostat, there might be faulty sensors and bad connections that skew the settings. If you invest in a newer, digital thermostat, you will get more accurate settings. You will also have the added benefit of being able to schedule times where your heat or AC doesn’t need to work as hard, such as during the night hours or when you are away at work. Getting a thermostat that connects to your WiFi will give you even more options, such as remote control, or even connection to your home automation system for voice control.
