Install a programmable thermostat.
ENERGY STAR® estimates that homeowners can save $180 a year by properly setting their programmable thermostats and maintaining those settings.
A programmable thermostat helps make it easy for you to save by offering four pre-programmed settings to regulate your home’s temperature in both summer and winter – when you are home, asleep or away.
The key is to establish a program that automatically reduces heating and cooling in your home when you don’t need as much.
This way you won’t have to remember to turn the furnace down when you go to sleep or leave for work. It will automatically change the temperature.
