In the winter, you can save energy by setting the thermostat to 68°F while you're awake and setting it lower while you're asleep or away from home. With a programmable thermostat, you can pre-program these settings to regulate your home's temperature. As a result, you don't operate your heating system as much when you are asleep or when the house is not occupied.
By turning your thermostat back 10° - 15°F for 8 hours, you can save about 5% - 15% a year on your heating bill, depending on your current system (according to the U.S. Department of Energy).
Programmable thermostats can store and repeat multiple daily settings that you can manually override without affecting the rest of the daily or weekly program. Dead River Company sells programmable thermostats that we can install in your home. Contact us today for more information and pricing.
