Money Saver: Dial Down Your Thermostat
Losing sleep over high winter heating costs? Why not turn down your thermostat before you go to bed at night or when you are not at home? Temperature adjustment is a simple and free way to lower your heating bills. The U.S. Department of Energy recommends wintertime temperature settings of 68°F during the day, and 60°F to 65°F at night.
Concerned that you might forget to turn down that thermostat on cold winter nights? Install a programmable thermostat; these handy little devices automate the process, allowing you to save energy and rest easy.
Today's advanced thermostats provide some pretty cool features. WiFi thermostats provide remote control. You can adjust temperatures from the couch, the kitchen or wherever you and your mobile device happen to be. Smart models add even more convenience by programming themselves based on your habits.
