Recently on our Facebook page, we posted a status asking people what temperature they keep their thermostat set to, especially on the cold days we experienced early this month. The response was overwhelming so we thought we would provide you some addition information to help provide some education on saving energy while remaining comfortable in your home.
According to the Department of Energy website, “You can save money on your heating and cooling bills by simply resetting your thermostat when you are asleep or away from home. You can do this automatically without sacrificing comfort by installing an automatic setback or programmable thermostat”. We couldn’t agree more. By using a Trane thermostat for example, you can make adjustments for not only winter and summer but also for times when you are at home and when you are away.
