How Much Energy Can We Save?
The Setpoint Savings Calculator by the Center for the Built Environment and Building Robotics at UC Berkley estimates the potential energy savings due to changes in thermostat settings. With this tool and a starting temperature range of range of 70°F - 72°F, we've estimated these potential energy savings.
Raising the cooling setpoint +3°F would mean the room will cool to 75°F instead of the previous 72°F. This change would save approximately 22% in cooling energy.
