Programmable Thermostats are good energy savers,
with 7 day programming and four time periods, you should be able to save anywhere from 5 to 15 percent on your utility bill
if the program periods are set properly.
There is a rule of thumb of never to go up or down more than 7 degrees of the
setting you normally have your thermostat set.
Energy saving automatic electric water heater timers
eliminate energy waste and save you big money, year in and year out.
An electric water heater uses more electricty than
any other appliance in your home.
It cycles on-off according to set point of thermostat, to maintain a constant temperature
24 hours a day, year after year.
If you are a working family and not home most of the day, electric water heater timers
make great sense and can save you up to 33% on your electric bill each month.
Ducts that leak heated air into unheated spaces can
add hundreds of dollars a year to your heating and cooling bills.
Sealing your ducts to prevent leaks is even more important
if the ducts are located in an unconditioned area such as an attic or vented crawl space.
If the supply ducts are leaking,
heated or cooled air can be forced out of unsealed joints and lost. In addition, unconditioned air can be drawn into return
ducts through unsealed joints.
In the summer, hot attic air can be drawn in, incresing the load on your air conditioner.
In the winter, your furnace will have to work longer to keep your house comfortable.
Either way, your energy losses cost
