Best Apartment Temperatures for Comfort and Budget

Best Apartment Temperatures for Comfort and Budget

Warmer weather is heading for Middle Tennessee. Finding the best temperatures in your apartment can be tricky, but there are a few basic rules to selecting the right temperatures for you that won’t break the bank, are energy efficient, and will keep guests (and yourself!) comfortable. As always, test these out in your apartment to find the right temperature for you
Suggested thermostat settings for summer are 72 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. This should feel reasonable with warmer weather. Remember, it’s more cost efficient to keep your apartment a little warmer in the summer (since it costs $$ to cool!). To save even more energy costs, consider adjusting the thermostat when you leave your apartment. Then turn it back to your regular setting as soon as you walk in the door to get it started quickly!

And finally, a few quick tips to keep you comfy and cozy:
  • Feeling a spot that’s way hot or way cold? Try opening the interior doors nearby! This allows air to flow more freely through your apartment, letting your thermostat, AC unit, or heater work more effectively.
  • Need a specific space taken care of? Invest in a small fan or space heater for your bedroom, bathroom, or other space that gets uncomfortable. You can likely save a little money by adjusting your thermostat and reducing your energy bill, too!
  • Sometimes there are more issues with larger apartments! Be patient as you adjust your thermostat or air conditioners to meet your needs. If you need to move them around for best results, ask your landlord.
  • Energy bill higher than expected? Check with your landlord for tips specific to your apartment. There may be certain ways they recommend you leave your blinds or curtains or be able to provide some extra insulation in the space.
