How Should I Set My A/C for Vacation?

Summer is the perfect time to take a vacation. A popular travel magazine estimates that 140,000,000 Americans will travel this summer. If you are among those travelers who will leave home for a week or more, remember to change your thermostat settings before you leave.

If you have a programmable thermostat, set it to run your air conditioner at 72 degrees for two hours each morning before sunrise and at 88 degrees for the rest of the day. This prevents mold by removing moisture from the air during the cooler hours when humidity is highest and A/C runs most efficiently. If you do not have a programmable thermostat, you can safely set the temperature in your home for a constant 80 degrees. For condominium units and apartments, it is recommended that you set the temperature to a slightly cooler 77 degrees.
