The easiest way to save your home heating dollars is to lower the temperature setting on your home
As a general rule, you save up to 2% on your heating bill for every 1°C you turn your thermostat down overnight.
A programmable thermostat automatically adjust your home’s temperature for better savings and comfort. Programmable, smart, and wi-fi enabled thermostats have a mechanical or electronic timer that allows you to preset household temperatures for specific time periods of the day and night.
Increased awareness of the need to control other Indoor Air Quality factors such as proper ventilation and humidity, has led to the development of smarter control systems as well. Modern thermostats also have the ability to control these factors, as well as many others, both in the summer and winter climates. Added control of humidity and ventilation leads to a more efficient system, but more importantly, a much healthier home climate.
Many homes have hardwood flooring that is sensitive to the level of humidity within the home. By synchronizing the control and settings of these systems, as well as adjusting the systems operation as outdoor conditions change, will ensure that your home humidity levels stay within the proper range.
