Programmable Thermostats Save Money, Energy

This week’s “Green Tip” comes from the Environmental News Network’s “10 Green Ways to Save Some Green $$” (via Richard C. Taylor, associate professor of plumbing and heating, andchair of the Energy Conservation Subcommittee): As the temperature drops and winter approaches, manage the fuel consumption of your home by installing programmable thermostats that can be set to lower the heat on a schedule you control when you’re not home or in rooms you’re not using. (Contacts for the “Green Tip of the Week” feature are Gail B. Landers , group leader at the Children’s Learning Center and a member of the Energy Conservation Subcommittee, and Carl J. Bower Jr. , horticulture instructor.)
