Spring weather can make you feel like you’re on a roller coaster. One day you’re wearing shorts and the next day you could be cranking up the heat. So how can you determine the ideal indoor temperature for your home? It involves monitoring the weather and staying connected on the go, while also keeping your personal preferences in mind. S&R Heating & Cooling shares our best tips for maintaining the ideal indoor temperature below. Call our Bryant® experts when you’re ready to discuss solutions at 651-429-0001.

The Ideal Indoor Temperature for Any Time of Year

Regardless of what time of year it is, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends keeping indoor temperatures between 68 and 70º F for maximum comfort and cost savings. However, if you’re not home or don’t mind an even lower temperature, you can keep it set around 65º F for even more savings.

How to Maintain the Ideal Indoor Temperature in Spring

Instead of being quick to rely on your air conditioner or furnace this spring, try to take advantage of the season’s natural temperatures. For example, open your windows on warmer, breezy days to let the fresh air cool your home. Or, on cooler days, open all your shades, blinds, and curtains to allow the spring sunshine to provide natural warmth. If you just need a little boost of warmth, you can also try using your fireplace to add coziness if you have one.

Everyone’s opinion on the ideal indoor temperature varies. But a good rule of thumb for this and any time of year is to keep your thermostat set as closely as possible to the actual outdoor temperature. It will help you achieve maximum efficiency and cost savings.

Dealing With Temperature Fluctuations

We all know that nature is unpredictable, especially in springtime. If you don’t already have one, a Wi-Fi or smart thermostat can help you keep your home comfortable, even when you’re not at home. S&R installs a range of models—and if you have any concerns with your existing thermostat, we can troubleshoot those for you, too. We’ll show you how to use your device and make sure you’re taking advantage of all the programming and customization features it offers.
