Would a Programmable Thermostat Save You Money ?

Would an Automatic SetBack Thermostat save you money?

Programmable Thermostats are one of the most cost-effective energy saving investments you can put in your home!  With their modest cost, these thermostats can save you a lot of money by:
  • Setting the heat to a lower setting when you sleep
  • Setting the heat to a lower setting when you are away.
  • Setting the A/C to a higher setting while you are away.
Heating Savings: The energy cost-savings from a Programmable Thermostat is impressive.  According the the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), "By turning the heat back 10-15 degrees while you are at work, you can save 5-15% on your annual heating bill".
Cooling Savings: In 2010 Forbes Magazine ranked DFW as #1 for high electric bills in the United States. * 


 A 2.5 ton central air conditioner uses 3500 watts or 3.5 KiloWattHours (KWH) for every hour it runs continuously.  For each degree below 78 energy usage increases by 3--4%.
