Give Yourself a Raise — Install a Programmable Thermostat and Save Money
Sometimes saving big money is the result of making small changes. Analyzing your monthly energy usage and tweaking it here and there can add up to big savings. In fact, a programmable thermostat can save you up to $180 per year on heating and cooling costs. That’s practically like giving yourself a monthly raise. In addition to your savings, you can enjoy year-round comfort with just a push of a few buttons. Programmable thermostats offer several benefits:
- Impressive Technology: Programmable thermostats are extremely user-friendly, offering impressive features to save you money. New, engaging touchscreen displays walk you through a simple, step-by-step process to set the temperature in your home every hour of the day. Some models can be remotely accessed through your smart phone to adjust the temperature if your schedule changes unexpectedly while other devices can even shut off appliances like the water heater for you.
- Set It and Forget It: Once you install a programmable thermostat and set it, you can pretty much forget it. You can count on it to keep your home a little warmer while you’re out and make it cool and comfortable when you walk in the door after a long, hot day.
- Variety: Programmable thermostats come in a wide variety to suit your family’s needs. If your schedule changes every day, choose one that allows you to set the temperature every day of the week. If your schedule is more predictable Monday through Friday, other models let you set the same temperature schedule during the work week and tweak it for the weekend when you are home more often.
