Comments Off on VIDEO: How to Save Money and Energy With a Programmable Thermostat

If your wallet is already feeling the pinch from your monthly energy bill as we head into the colder months, you’ll be happy to know that you can keep those expenses down using a simple device called a programmable thermostat . We introduced these handy gadgets to you back in October and now we have a handy video that makes it even easier to understand what programmable thermostats do and how they can save the average household about $180* a year. Click the video above to get the full scoop on how this advanced technology works and what kinds of perks the latest models offer – including the ability to control your home’s temperature from bed, your office or even while you’re on vacation. * Based on ENERGY STAR averages. The $180 savings assumes a typical, single-family home with a 10 hour daytime setback of 8° F in winter and setup of 7° F in summer, and an 8 hour nighttime setback of 8° F in winter and a setup of 4° F in summer. At  The Home Depot , we pride ourselves on being  sustainability minded . To make saving energy and money even easier, we’ve launched our  EcoOptions  website dedicated to  green products  such as WaterSense® and ENERGY STAR® labeled products and wood harvested from sustainable forests.  EcoOptions  also offers helpful tips for homeowners trying to  go green  to help you every step of the way.
