Did you know that one of the best and easiest ways to save energy and money is with a programmable thermostat?

Turning your thermostat down in the winter and up in the summer, while you're sleeping or away from home, can add up to big energy savings. For example, in the winter, for each degree you lower your thermostat for eight hours or more, you save about two percent on your heating bill.

Tip: Lower your thermostat just five degrees, while you're at work – without sacrificing comfort. It does not take more energy to bring your home back to the desired temperature after raising or lowering the thermostat while you're asleep or away.

Fact: A programmable thermostat is the easiest and most efficient way to use your thermostat to control your energy costs and stay comfortable.

Your certified Shumate technician can help you with a programmable thermostat right now. If it's programmed and used properly, you can expect to recover the cost of your programmable thermostat in just the first year or so.

Tip: Make sure to schedule your preventative maintenance. With a Shumate home maintenance plan, you'll lower your monthly utility bills by having a more efficient HVAC system. More importantly, a maintained system dramatically lengthens the life of your equipment, saving you thousands of dollars by not having to prematurely replace your system.
