Save up to $180 with a Programmable Thermostat

Have you heard about programmable thermostats, also known as setback thermostats? Most likely, yes. So you know that, in theory, they save money and energy by automatically lowering and raising the temperature in your home, depending on when it is needed. That may seem like a lot of work and fuss. However, it is not. It seriously does work in theory and reality.

According to ENERGY STAR®, programmable thermostats are “…one of the easiest ways you can save energy, money, and help fight global warming?” Also, you can save up to $180/year just from a programmable thermostat alone (imagine combining that with buying the generic brand cereal…) Here is an example of the settings that ENERGY STAR® programmable thermostats come with for you to receive the most benefits (These can be adjusted):

Setting Time Setpoint Temperature (Heat) Setpoint Temperature (Cool)
Wake 6:00 a.m. ≤ 70° F ≥ 78° F
Day 8:00 a.m. Setback at least 8° F Setup at least 7° F
Evening 6:00 p.m. ≤ 70° F ≥ 78° F
Sleep 10:00 p.m. Setback at least 8° F Setup at least 4° F

The other good news, as you can tell from this chart, is that programmable thermostats are helpful in both the winter and the summer. Now go and enjoy this snowy day. Contact FLAME for any questions about programmable thermostats, or check out the ENERGY STAR® website, where much of this info came from.
