There’s much debate in our home as of late with the weather being what it is. When it does cool off, my wife and I battle over where to set the thermostat to get our home toasty ASAP. Is it true that if we crank it all the way up it will heat up our home faster? She says it isn’t a factor, but I think it is. Help me set the record straight once and for all.

Inefficient, outdated heating, cooling, and ventilation systems can be draining on your wealth, but also on your health. Uncirculated, stale air allows moisture, odors, and pollutants to linger in your home. Consider replacing systems that aren’t energy efficient if they’re more than 7 to 10 years old – even those in fine mechanical working condition. Also consider automatic thermostats and a balanced ventilation system with a single intake for fresh air that’s filtered, heated or cooled, and distributed to living areas and later exhausted through several outlets. Over time, energy savings as high as 30% from energy efficient heating and cooling equipment will recoup the cost of buying the systems.
The largest portion of most utility bills is attributed to controlling temperature. An energy efficient heating and cooling system can significantly contribute to savings on your utility bill and may improve the comfort in your home. When shopping for a new heating or cooling system, be sure to take into consideration the equipment costs, costs of fuel, fuel delivery, warranties and any predictable maintenance costs over the life of the equipment.
