Heat pump and programmable Tstat savings
We just built a new home and moved in during September. Our last house was oil/hot water baseboard, so the heat pump is new to us. In our old house I would program the heat to lower from 11pm until we came home from work the next day at 3pm. We have a Honeywell Pro 8000 programmable tstat on the new system, but it seems like some folks don't recommend setting the temp lower for heat pump like we used to, claiming the heat pumps take much longer to catch up and it ends up not saving as much. Would love to hear from some the HVAC experts on here. I currently have it set to 66 when we are home then drop to 62 when we are sleeping and away. We are in eastern PA about an hour north west of Philly.
