Installing a programmable thermostat in your house is one of the easiest ways to save energy and money. A programmable thermostat is set to control the temperature in your house automatically depending on the season, your work schedule or even sleep. By having an the temperature on automatic pre-set programs, you don't have to worry about remembering to turn the temperature down when you leave or having an uncomfortable temperature upon your return. Homeowners can save about $180 a year by properly setting their ENERGY STAR programmable thermostats and maintaining those settings.

Programmable thermostats are easy enough to install it yourself if all you are doing is replacing the thermostat. If the job requires more than a simple replacement, call your local HVAC professional. See below under Installation for more information on how to properly install a programmable thermostat.
