Optimal Temperature Settings

Set your thermostat to a moderate temperature, ideally between 78-80 degrees Fahrenheit, to create a comfortable indoor environment without overworking your HVAC system. Avoid setting the temperature significantly lower than needed, as this can lead to increased energy consumption and strain on the unit.
