Did you know that you can save about 1% on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat over an 8-hour period in the winter? A programmable thermostat makes it easy allow your house to cool when no one is home or during the night and to tap into 10-20% savings on your annual energy bill. Many families save enough to pay for the new thermostat in a few months. Not only can you save money, but you also reduce the pollution associated with energy generation. We are sojourners on God’s earth, let us walk as gently as possible.
