A simple way to reduce your heating costs this winter is to reset your thermostat when you are asleep. This may help keep your costs down. If you’re concerned you will come home to a cold house, consider installing a programmable thermostat.
A programmable thermostat will allow you to adjust your home’s temperature automatically according to a preset schedule. This way you will arrive home to a warm house but won’t have wasted extra electricity while the house was empty.
