Save Money with a Programable Thermostat


Turning down your thermostat by just a few degrees in the winter can save 5-10% on your overall heating bill.

The best way to achieve this is through the use of a programmable thermostat and its setback feature.

You can program your thermostat to set the temperature back until the next pre-programed time when you want normal temperatures.  Save money with a programable thermostat by programming temperatures in your home  to 62°F on cold winter nights, when you’re sleeping under blankets, this  can help you save as much as 15% on your heating costs.

Using The Setback Feature

You can program your thermostat to “setback” temperatures when your family is work, at school, or on vacation. In summer, setbacks work much the same way for central air conditioning.

Most of these thermostats come with two setbacks, a week day and a week end program.

The setback feature is important because if you’re anything like me you’ll forget to turn your thermostat down all the time. Even if you are already pretty good at remembering, these devices can frequently enable you to set back or turn up the thermostat a few extra degrees, without your assistance.

Here’s an example of my house program:

Save money with a programmable thermostat is easy once you take the steps to install and set up your custom program.
