Here are some simple thermostat tips for saving money and energy:
- Turn your settings back.
- Save as much as 10% a year by simply turning your thermostat back for 8 hours.
- Install a programmable thermostat.
- Programmable thermostats can automatically adjust your heating and cooling according to a preset schedule.
- Programmable thermostats can store and repeat multiple daily settings (six or more temperature settings a day) that you can manually override without affecting the rest of the daily or weekly program.
When shopping for a programmable thermostat, be sure to look for the ENERGY STAR® label. Also check out the BGE PeakRewardsSM A/C Program.
