Do you have a drafty window? Do you find yourself getting busy with all sorts of tricks with the windows just to keep your home warm or cool? Do you see visible cracks or gaps? Are your problems with the windows and/or doors related to the usual wear and tear or are these all signs of improper insulation? If any of the questions above are troubling you, there is a strong likelihood that these problems are costing you some 30% heat loss in your household.
Are you aware that heating and cooling make up approximately 40% of our energy use? With an electric programmable thermostat, you can have savings of up to 20% on your heating bill; by lowering the temperature 5 degrees during night time and 10 degrees in the day while heating you are out. The same is accomplished by setting it up by the same amount when cooling.
A programmable thermostat is the essential tool to save utilities bill and the earth.
