Energy savings in my summer home in Jacksonville, Florida can be a challenge. With the 95-degree heat each day and high humidity, our air conditioner unit is constantly running… unfortunately. Last summer my husband and I heard about installing a Smart programmable thermostat to save energy and it’s been the best decision ever! I’m excited to pair up with Lennox® to highlight energy saving tips for your home and to give you a chance to enter their Energy Savings Superstar Contest. You have the chance of winning $10,000 in Lennox® heating and air conditioning equipment for your home…. I know right? Take a look at how to enter.
Saving Electricity and The Lennox Energy Savings Superstar Contest
I don’t know about your house during the summertime but it seems like we’re constantly on the go and conservation of energy tends to be last priority on our minds. We decided to install our Smart Programmable Thermostat last summer and have been using it for more than a year. We love how you can control it remotely from your smartphone or computer when you’re out of town, or even if you’re on your way home from work and you want the house to be cool when you get home! More importantly than convenience is it learns our family habits of when we are away or in the house and it saves us energy without us thinking about it.
Here’s a good energy efficiency tip when using your thermostat:
Raise the temperature of your thermostat a few degrees in the summer to lower cooling costs. In the winter lower the temperature a few degrees to save on winter heating costs. A programmable thermostat will also keep you from changing the settings constantly, resulting in less energy efficiency.
Lennox® air conditioning units help save energy:
While your thermostat is one way to cut your energy costs, the air conditioning unit you use should be energy efficient as well. The Ultimate Comfort System™ from Lennox® is made one of the most efficient and quietest HVAC systems on the market. Consider the XC25 model, which offers the lowest operating noise levels of any air conditioner and is precise and energy efficient.
