Properly installing a programmable thermostat in your home is one of the easiest ways you can save money and energy. A programmable thermostat offers the ability to pre-program settings that regulate your home’s temperature.Follow these tips to get the most efficient use of a programmable thermostat during the cold weather season:
- When away from home or asleep, use a lower temperature setting for savings.
- When at home, use a higher temperature setting for comfort.
- The location of your thermostat matters, too. A thermostat should be on an interior wall, away from direct sunlight, drafts, doorways and windows.
