How to Set a Thermostat in Winter to Keep Warm and Save Money and Energy?

The cold air goes round after round, the weather is getting colder and colder, and winter heating has once again become a hot topic of people's daily discussion. The thermostat can intelligently control the home heating system, and it is favored by modern families with its "personalized heating solution". In winter, many users are uncertain about the heating temperature. They always ask about the appropriate temperature adjustment and how to save energy and money for heating. Next, in response to the above questions, I will explain how to set the thermostat in winter for your reference.

1. How to set up thermostats upstairs and downstairs in winter

Relevant experts have found that in winter indoors at 18-25℃, relative humidity at 40%-70%, the human body feels the most comfortable. The temperature standard for heating in winter is determined according to the actual needs of people. The standard for indoor heating temperature is 18℃±2℃. The energy efficient temperature for winter is generally 21℃.

If there are upstairs and downstairs areas in the user's home, pay attention to insulation for the house. If the house is not well insulated, a large amount of indoor heat will be lost to the outdoors through thermal convection, and a large amount of outdoor cold air will flow into the room, making the thermostat continue to operate and heat, and the gas consumption is naturally large. Before leaving the house, users should close all doors and windows and draw up all curtains to keep the house warm.

Users can set the appropriate temperature for the rooms upstairs and downstairs respectively through the smart radiator control thermostat.

2. How to set up a dual-zone thermostat in winter

  • Use multi zone underfloor heating control systems to lower the temperature of uninhabited rooms. If the housing area is large and there are many rooms, you can choose to lower the temperature of the unoccupied and idle rooms. Reducing the heat supply will not only save energy, but the temperature rise of the room where the heating system is normally used will also increase, reducing gas consumption.

  • In fact, if the temperature difference between the indoor temperature and the set temperature of the thermostat is large, the heating system needs to operate with high power to speed up the room temperature. This will not save energy, but will waste more gas. Therefore, it is not advisable to turn off the gas when you are away from home for a short or long time. To prevent the system pipeline from freezing and cracking, the thermostat can be adjusted to the antifreeze state.
