Adjust the Temperature

  • When you are home and awake, set your thermostat as low as is comfortable for energy efficiency.
  • When you are asleep or out of the house, turn your thermostat back 10° to 15° for eight hours and save around 10% a year on your heating and cooling bills. A programmable thermostat can make it easy to set back your temperature.
