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. You can even get a rebate from Dominion Energy's Thermwise program.

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.
