Temperature Settings for Summer
Experts agree that you should set higher temperatures when you are away from home and when you are asleep.

If you are going to be away for eight hours or more, set the thermostat to the highest recommended temperature.
You can realize meaningful savings on your energy bill by programming your thermostat correctly. You can invest in smart thermostats that enable you to program temperatures even more effectively. Many thermostats today, allow you to set vacation programming modes and even set various programming combinations. Perhaps one of the most convenient features gives you the ability to make updates and adjustments remotely from an Internet-enabled device.
Programming Your Thermostat for Better Temperature Control

You will be able to set your thermostat to energy-saving settings when you are away. You can save even more money by keeping your thermostat closer to the outside temperature.
