What Should You Set Your Air Conditioner Temperature to When Leaving On Vacation?
While it sounds like a simple question, setting your thermostat too high when you leave for vacation could actually end up costing you more. The reason is, if the house is allowed to get too hot the air conditioner will have to work overtime when you return to restore the temperature to a comfortable range, negating much of the energy savings.
Turning the temperature up too high can also cause problems with excess humidity, which can damage furnishings and cause mildew to grow.
What is the best temperature? We recommend setting the temperature 4-5 degrees higher than the normal setting to save energy and keep your house safe from excess heat and humidity. So if you normally set your temperature to 72, turn it up to a maximum of 77 degrees.
