Going Green LogoWhen going on vacation for a few days, turn the thermostat on the A/C to 78-85 degrees and Auto if the area will be unoccupied. This will help you save money because the unit will only come on if the area gets that warm. When you return, reset the thermostat to 74-78 degrees for summer energy savings. A lower temperature setpoint will not cool the space any faster.
