Save Energy Dollars Regardless of the Season
How? By installing a programmable thermostat on your central heating and air conditioning system. The money you invest upgrading your thermostat today will pay you back in dividends down the road.
EnergyStar-sponsored research has shown turning your thermostat back 10 to 15 degrees for eight hours a day can save from 5-15% on your heating bill.
Available at home stores, these devices keep your home comfortable when you need it. For example, program the thermostat so that after the kids have done to school it will automatically cut back the temperature. Then, set it to come back to a comfortable temperature when they return.
A good programmable thermostat can be bought for $50 – a good investment.
Are you tech savvy?
Now you can install a programmable thermostat that connects with your WiFi that allows you to remotely adjust the temperature from your smart phone. Drop back the thermostat while you are away on vacation. Then, turn it back where you like a few hours before you even make it back home.
