The colder months are upon us and I have something to give away that every homeowner could use to help save on the the cost of heating/cooling your home for many years to come. A Honeywell WiFi Programmable Thermostat that lets you change the temperature in your home from your cell phone or anywhere. Wouldn’t it be nice to come home after a trip to a house that is the perfect temperature inside? Or not have to worry if you turned the heat down before you left? It can all be done with this -
You can program it differently for each day of the week. Do you work all day on Tuesday? Program it so the temperature is lower while no one is at home and will automatically go up an hour before you arrive back home. Being able to easily keep the heat lower at times you don’t need it is a huge money saver.
I learned all about this and other energy saving tips when I was out in Michigan with the Home Depot Blogger Network.
I know you may be more interested in the decorative aspects of making a house a home, but with a little bit of energy saving knowledge – you can use those dollars saved to buy a new piece of furniture every year or pay a painter to do a big job for you.
The energy savings really add up when you complete a few simple winterization projects. Here are a few that we did to the home of Stiggy’s Dogs: Clean and/or replace your furnace filters, caulk around the outside of your windows, and wrap your water heater in an insulating blanket. All of these tips are simple and easy to do and the cha-ching you hear will be from the sound of the savings in your pocket.
