Programmable thermostats are a smart way to stay comfortable and reduce heating costs for your home
There’s no reason to spend money to heat or cool your house when there is no one home to enjoy it! Using a programmable thermostat allows you to program your heat in advance to match your weekly schedule. Set your thermostat to lower the heat by 10°-12° for the 8 hours or so that everyone is out during the day. Also, consider reducing the heat by a few degrees while you’re sleeping at night to keep your family comfortable without overspending. If you search on blogspot for mytrustedcontractor.com, they have a great article that talks about thermostat placement and problems. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat yet, you have a few options:
You can be extra vigilant about turning the heat down each time you leave the house.
You can purchase a digital thermostat yourself (usually between $25-100 dollars, depending how fancy you go).
Or, you can get a Mass Save home energy assessment, and receive a delightful, digital thermostat at no cost to you or your landlord, if you are a renter! Now that’s what we call a deal!
Get with the program, and reduce your heating bills today!
