Effects of Thermostat Setting on Energy Consumption
This study measures the energy savings from thermostat setback (in winter) and set forward (in summer) in R-2000 houses at the Canadian Centre for Housing Technology. In order to reduce energy use, many households adjust their thermostat settings when occupants are not at home, or are asleep. The research demonstrates the benefits of this relatively simple energy conservation measure. Results vary in less efficient houses, and set-backs could lead to condensation and mold in some houses.
