A programmable thermostat has the potential to lower your heating and cooling costs as much as 10−15% when used properly. The most basic way to save money is to set it to a lower temperature during those hours when you are asleep or away from home. Reverse the process in summer to save money on air conditioning.
Position your programmable thermostat correctly
To function properly, a programmable thermostat should be installed on an interior wall out of direct sunlight, and away from drafts, doorways, and windows. It should not be placed near a heat source such as a clothes dryer or stove. And do not place furniture or other obstructions near your thermostat—it needs a free flow of air to work properly.
