Save Energy!

Use Your Time Wisely

If you are like most of us, you are away from your home at least eight hours a day and asleep for another eight. A Programmable thermostat provides you added flexibility and savings in controlling your environment.  Added to that, we have some great new controls that allow you to adjust your thermostat remotely to even have more control of your temperature.

According to ENERGY STAR, you can reduce your yearly energy bill by as much as $180 every year by installing and using a programmable thermostat. To maximize your energy savings, implement a schedule similar to the ones below:

Example Summer Schedule:

Wake at 6:00 a.m. – temperature is set at or above 76° F.
Leave for work at 8:00 a.m. – temperature automatically increases 7° F.
Come home from work at 6:00 p.m. – temperature returns to or above 76° F.
Go to sleep at 10:00 p.m. – temperature raises at least 4° F.

Example Winter Schedule:

Wake at 6:00 a.m. – temperature is set at or below 70° F.
Leave for work at 8:00 a.m. – temperature automatically decreases 8° F.
Come home from work at 6:00 p.m. – temperature returns to or below 70° F.
Go to sleep at 10:00 p.m. – temperature falls at least 8° F.
