How Thermostat Placement Can Impact Comfort and Efficiency
Putting your thermostat in the right place is one of the easiest ways to make sure that your Adel, GA, home stays at a comfortable temperature. However, there a few factors that you need to consider when you’re deciding on the best location to install it. Keep reading to discover the three most important things to think about before you make a decision.
Do You Want It in the Center of Your Home?
The ideal location for a thermostat is in a room that stays at a constant temperature throughout the day. In other words, you want to keep your thermostat away from windows and exterior doors. For many people, this means that the center of the home is the perfect place to install a thermostat.
Which Room Has the Best Insulation?
To make sure your thermostat’s sensor can take an accurate reading, you’ll want to install it in a room that has strong insulation. Otherwise, the outside temperature can significantly change your thermostat’s reading. Usually, an interior wall in your dining room or living room works best.
Which Rooms Are Furthest From the Kitchen?
Every time you cook, the heat from your kitchen spreads into the surrounding air. If you put your thermostat close to the kitchen, your air conditioner will work harder than needed. Likewise, a thermostat that’s too close to the kitchen will often fail to turn on the heat when it should.
