Most people think of their thermostat as the little box on their wall that they adjust when they are feeling cold. But if you have a programmable thermostat, you could be doing much more with it – including saving money.
In fact, managing the temperature of your home with a programmable thermostat is one of the easiest ways to save 10 percent or more on your energy costs – enough to cover the cost of installing one if you don’t have one already.
If you do have a programmable thermostat, you might be wondering what settings will give you the best balance of comfort and economy. Here’s what the U.S. Department of Energy has to say about that.
* On exceptionally cold days, avoid dropping your thermostat below 60 degrees to prevent frozen pipes.
** If you have Wi-Fi thermostat, you can control your home’s temperature from your smart phone.
