That’s a good question, since heating accounts for about 54% of your electricity bill.
It’s difficult to answer your question precisely since a number of factors must be taken into account, including the total area of the building and the number of people that work there. As an indication, Natural Resources Canada recommends setting the temperature in your home at around 20 °C during the day.
We suggest you install programmable electronic thermostats to regulate your workplace temperature so you can automatically lower the temperature when a room is empty, which helps save on heating costs.
