Your Vacation + Your Air Conditioning: What Homeowners Need to Know

Tiger Services family on beach vacation air conditioning tips

When it comes to vacations, there can be a lot of prep work. Just think about it! You have to book your trip, place a hold on the mail and newspaper, pack your bags, and of course, secure your home.

When it comes to your home’s air conditioner, do you know what to do before leaving on a vacation? The Tiger Services team breaks down our best tips for you below.

When to Turn Off Your Thermostat

The first thought homeowners have when leaving for a vacation, typically, is to turn off their thermostat. However, this is a big no-no.

Turning off your air conditioning system will leave your home very humid. In some cases, this can even cause mold to grow.

When to Turn Up the Temperature

Now let’s talk about what you should do with your thermostat. For vacationers, we recommend you bump the thermostat temperature up a few degrees.

US Department of Energy Fact: A savings of as much as 1% for each degree if the setback period is eight hours long.

Not only will your system use less energy to stay at a higher temperature, rather than turning it off and powering it back on, but it will also keep the humidity level in your home steady.

Utilize Smart Thermostats

So what’s the best way to utilize your heating and cooling system while you are out of town?

A smart or programmable thermostat could be the answer. These handy devices will allow you to control the temperature while you’re away, plus, will return your home to a pleasant, cool temperature just in time for your return.
