Programmable Thermostat Usage

IDT Energy ,


Programmable thermostats are a good way to save on your IDT Energy bills.  While it may initially seem like a pricey investment, it seems that research has proven it can pay for itself within a year.  So how is it meant to be used to ensure it is most efficient?  The most important thing to do is to use it consistently.  If not, then one will not reap the conservation benefits.

Make sure the thermostat has four pre-programmed temperature settings.  This ensures one’s home or office stays at the correct temperature needed for different times of the day.  This is the main benefit of having this type of thermostat.  Some models even allow for different temperature setting on different days of the week (maybe some days one is at home a lot and other days, not so much).  For example, setting a furnace for a short time before one arrives home, provides for a warm and cozy homecoming, without getting a high utility bill at the end of the month.
