This depends on your personal preferences and how much you want to save on cooling bills.

Here are expert recommendations:

  • ENERGY STAR®—82 degrees, but this might be too warm for most people.
  • National Sleep Foundation—60-67 degrees, as people sleep best when their bedroom is cool.

We’ve found that around 70 degrees is comfortable for most people. You can try experimenting with your thermostat for a week to find the most comfortable temperature for you. Or you can ask us about installing a smart thermostat, which creates an energy-efficient cooling schedule with your temperature preferences in mind.
