Could a New Thermostat Lower Your Heating and Cooling Bills?
If you’re looking for more attractive and user-friendly thermostats, consider upgrading to Wi-Fi-enabled models. They’re proven to reduce your air conditioner’s annual runtime while lowering your heating and cooling bills by 15%. For best results, follow these recommendations from the Department of Energy when programming your thermostat.
- Use eight-hour setback periods to minimize costly temperature changes.
- During the cooling season, increase the temperature by 4 to 7 degrees when you’re away or asleep.
- If you have a thermostat designed for a furnace or heat pump, use an 8-degree setback during the winter for additional savings.
