AbstractTemporarily adjusting the temperature setting on the thermostat at night or while residents are away from home offers an attractive solution to energy savings. During the winter heating season of 2002-2003, the Canadian Centre for Housing Technology (CCHT) ran a series of trials to determine actual energy savings from thermostat setback, and to examine the resultant house temperatures and recovery times. As a follow-up to these winter experiments, a set of summer trials were performed to determine the effect of thermostat setting on air conditioning performance. This document examines the results.
