What temperature should I have my AC set at while in the Fall season?

After Labor Day, most of us start preparing for the cooler Fall weather.

  • And this time of year, all of us make swings to how all of us use our central air units.

In the beginning of Fall, the weather is still hot in some areas, which means that some people will still use their central air conditioning systems. As the season progresses and the weather becomes cooler outside, all of us begin to adjust the temperature on our thermostats, but personally, I look forward to this time of year because not only do I increase the temperature on my thermostat, although I also open my windows while in the mornings to allow the cool breeze to flow inside. Additionally, I use my ceiling fan more because the weather is cool enough for it. I live in an section where the weather is pretty brutal while in the Summer, so my central air conditioning system is usually running every morning, so I am ecstatic when the Fall weather comes around because I can give my HVAC component a much needed split after the Summer. During the Summer, I keep my thermostat at 69 degrees, which is close to the recommended temperature of 70 degrees. However, while in the Fall, I increase my thermostat to 70 degrees and my house is perfectly comfortable. So far, the air conditioning system has not been running a lot while in the days. In fact, one morning I woke up and the indoor temperature was 71 degrees, which means that the overnight temperature was rather cold. It warmed up that morning and eventually the central air conditioning system cycled on, however it did not take long for it to cycle off again.
