Heat Wave in So Cal

While waves of snow and ice blanket the East Coast, here in Southern California we are experience hot days and cold nights. This kind of extreme change may prompt you to crank up your AC during the day and your heater at night. While it may be tempting to push your thermostat to the extreme, ramping up the heat or AC doesn't do the job any bit quicker. A very low or high temperature set-point can overtax your AC, heat pump, or furnace -- plus, its not all that energy effiecient.
