A Digital Thermostat Can Save 20% on Energy Bills

According to many energy consumption professionals, a properly programmed thermostat can save homeowners up to 20% on energy bills. In today's age of digital technology, nearly all new heating and cooling systems come equipped with some sort of digital thermostat. However, a large portion of homeowners don't utilize the technology to its fullest potential. Of course you can set the device to hold a constant temperature, or you can adjust the settings manually before you go to sleep each night, or when you leave your home for the day, but wouldn't it be nice for the adjustments to happen automatically? With a little understanding of your digital thermostat, it probably can.

With most digital programmable thermostats, you can preset the temperature based on your schedule and the appropriate season. For example, if you like your home at 20 degrees in the winter months, consider dropping the temperature a couple degrees while you are away at work or while you are sleeping. Reducing the amount of energy required to heat your home for those 16 hours you are sleeping or away can add up to significant savings over the course of a month.

This concept applies to summer weather as well, just in reverse. If you like your home to be 20 degrees in the summer, consider programming your thermostat to keep your home a couple degrees hotter during the day when you are away at work. Program the central air kick back in an hour before you get home and you will never know the difference! These are a couple simple strategies that can greatly reduce energy consumption, relieve workload on your heating and cooling units and save you money without even noticing it. Of course everyone has different lifestyles, schedules and preferences, so find the right schedule that works for you.
