Thermostats

  • Set your thermostat lower in winter and higher in summer. In heating mode, lower your thermostat by 1 degree Fahrenheit for 8 hours (such as when you are asleep or away) to save about 1 percent on your heating bill.
  • Keep your thermostat at 68 degrees or lower in the winter and 78 degrees or higher in the summer to save some green. You also can save with a programmable thermostat that automatically adjusts the temperature when you’re asleep or away.
  • Turn down the thermostat when you have guests. With the extra warm bodies in the house, you won’t need to crank the heat. Save energy and keep your guests comfortable by turning down the thermostat
