Would you like to save money this year? Of course you would! Heating our homes can be a big line item in the budget, especially during the cold winter months. Be sure your system is working well.

Thermostats can help a home’s system working efficiently. You want to heat the house only when you’re in it. If you’re home most of the time, then a set temperature is comfortable. 68˚ is an optimum temperature for comfort and cost. But if you are in and out of the house all day, or work outside of the home, make sure the furnace is running only when you’re there. A thermostat with controls that can be scheduled will make cost-saving improvements.
*Tip for saving money – lower the temperature while you’re sleeping. It will save you money.
