Consider replacing traditional thermostats with programmable ones.

Nest programmable thermostat

The nest learning thermostat

According to ENERGY STAR, the average household spends $2,200.00 a year on energy bills and could save $180.00 a year by using a programmable thermostat to maintain proper heating and cooling settings.  This one’s a no-brainer, so before the winter chill settles in and decides to stay a while, call your heating and cooling contractor and schedule an installation.  Your wallet will thank you.
