Using a programmable thermostat, you can adjust the times you turn on the heating according to a pre-set schedule. Programmable thermostats can store and repeat multiple daily settings that you can manually override without affecting the rest of the daily or weekly program. You can easily save energy in the winter by setting the thermostat to 68°F while you’re awake and setting it lower while you’re asleep or away from home. By turning your thermostat back 5°+ for 8 hours, you can save 5% or more a year on your heating bill.
