Many people believe that you should turn your heating or air off when you go on a trip. However, doing so could cost you much more money than you’d save on energy costs by turning it off. Turning off your heat in the winter can cause your pipes to freeze, and turning off your AC in the summer can cause extra condensation and moisture to collect in your home. Each of these issues could come with costly repairs.

Additionally, when you turn off your AC or heat while you’re out of town, that means that your home’s HVAC system will have to work extra hard to get the temperature back to normal when you return. This extra push can cause you just as much money as you’d save by turning it off while you’re on vacation.

While you shouldn’t turn your HVAC system off completely, you can turn down the temperature a few degrees while you’re away; this will save you some money without causing any damage to your HVAC system or your home. If you have a programmable thermostat, you can even set it to go back to the regular temperature shortly before you return home. In addition, you can program your thermostat to drop a few degrees each day while you’re at work.
