Instead of completely turning off your heating system while you’re out of the house, consider setting the temperature a few degrees lower than you would while you’re home as well as lowering the temperature while you’re sleeping. According to the Energy.gov
website, “by turning your thermostat back 10° to 15° for 8 hours, you can save 5% to 15% a year on your heating bill — a savings of as much as 1% for each degree if the setback period is eight hours long.” Consider installing a programmable thermostat
instead of constantly adjusting a traditional thermostat to achieve these results. Programmable thermostats are designed to save your preferred settings and will automatically adjust to your preference for your connivence. Features like these will lower the amount of energy you use and ultimately, result in lowering the cost of utility bills.
