Ways to Save: Programmable Thermostats

For most homeowners, about half of your electricity is used to cool or heat the air inside your house. And, in most of these homes a programmable thermostat can be used to save you money without sacrificing comfort. While thermostats can be adjusted manually, programmable thermostats can avoid discomfort by returning temperatures to normal before you wake or return home.

Important to consider:

  • The smaller the difference between the indoor and outdoor temperatures, the lower your overall heating or cooling bill will be.
  • Programmable thermostats can store and repeat multiple daily settings that you can manually override without affecting the rest of the daily or weekly program.
  • For any cost savings, members must program the thermostat to change temperatures during the day.
