One of the least expensive ways to reduce your heating costs is with a programmable thermostat. When you reduce the temperature of your home in the winter time you save money. A programmable thermostat allows you to reduce the temperature of your home when you are sleeping or at work and then have your home return to normal temperature in the mornings or evenings when you return all automatically.
These thermostats have different settings for morning, day time, evening and overnight. They also allow you to program for weekends. They are extremely flexible, easy to program and very effective. Recker and Boerger does not recommend a programmable thermostat with a heat pump. If you go to bed around the same time and get up and leave your home at the same time why not save some money at the same time!
