Looking for an easy, inexpensive way to keep your heating bills low this winter? As the winter chill arrives, it can be tempting to turn the thermostat all the way up. Unfortunately, this will result in extra charges on your utility bill. By installing a programmable thermostat, you can set different temperatures for different times of day – depending on whether you are home, out or sleeping – and enjoy significant savings on your heating costs.
Many homeowners are already aware lowering the home temperature by just a few degrees – say from 72 to 68 degrees – has a positive effect on home heating costs. Programmable thermostats help you save even more by letting you preset different temperatures depending on the time of day – morning, noon, evening or night. If you normally heat the home at 68 degrees, for example, you can program the thermostat to drop to 60 degrees while you are out or sleeping. This will prevent you overheating an empty home. Depending on the thermostat, you may be able to set different temperature change programs for each of seven days.
If you’ve been looking for a simple and effective way to ensure optimal warmth and heating efficiency this winter, a programmable thermostat is definitely worth considering. Its “set and forget” features can help you maintain a comfortable temperature in your home while lowering your utility costs.
