The U.S. is a vast place, and the place you live typically determines optimal temperatures for inside a home. People from different climate zones tend to prefer consistent temperatures, but outside temperatures typically influence those preferences. Fall generally has the most variable temperatures throughout the country, with some days feeling closer to winter than summer and others are just the opposite.
Maintaining a steady temperature is ideal for virtually any living space. When you attempt to change the temperature of a space by constantly changing thermostat settings, you are essentially forcing your HVAC system to work harder than it needs to and increasing the chances of equipment breakdowns and uncomfortable temperatures.
Keeping your thermostat at one temperature steadily throughout the season increases the overall comfort of the space. Regardless of whether it’s an apartment with one tenant, a large family home, or a multi-unit rental property, consistent thermostat settings are a must. Consistent thermostat settings are the most efficient way to keep inside temperatures comfortable in every part of the U.S., but some areas experience more dramatic temperature shifts than others.
People who live in variable climates like the Northeast and Midwest United States tend to have the most trouble with their inside temperatures in the fall. The transitional season compels many property owners to crank up their air conditioning by lowering their thermostat temperature during hotter days and then raising the temperature once the weather shifts toward colder temperatures. This type of pattern doesn’t result in more efficient heating or cooling as it essentially contradicts how HVAC systems actually work.
Controlled thermostats are ideal for any climate zone of the United States. These devices can help keep interior temperatures consistent without diminishing the efficacy of your HVAC system, even when there is a large gap between inside and outside temperatures.
