    Programmable Thermostats:

    A Cool Way to Save and Stay Warm

    Heating and cooling systems account for more than 40% of the average energy bill over the course of a year. For the typical household, that adds up to almost $1,000 annually. Installing a programmable thermostat provides you with more control over your HVAC system, making it one of the easiest ways to save money on your electric and heating bills.

    According to the Department of Energy, setting your thermostat just 7 to 10 degrees cooler for 8 hours a day can reduce your bill by 10%. While that might be a hassle if you have to adjust the temperature manually, it’s a piece of cake when you can program your thermostat. The easy-to-use interface allows you to schedule your thermostat temperature based on the time of day and day of the week.

    Energy Saving Thermostat Settings for Winter

    There’s no reason to waste money running your heating system or air conditioner while you’re away at work. Programming your thermostat to an ideal temperature for the times you’ll be home and a few degrees cooler while you're away will add up to real savings every month. If 68 degrees fahrenheit is your ideal temp, lower it to 60, maybe 65 degrees during the work day.

    Lowering the temperature overnight is another great way to save. Our bodies already lower their core temperature by a couple of degrees in the early stages of sleep. So programming your thermostat to do the same can help you sleep more soundly while saving you money. And who doesn’t like to bundle up in a cozy blanket while drifting off to sleep?

    When the seasons change and your AC takes over from the furnace, reverse the program so that your home is warmer while you're away. Doing so is easier than changing your clocks for daylight savings. And if you ever have a question about doing so, just give us a call and we can help.
