When used with a little planning, a programmable thermostat can help you shave dollars off of your winter heating bill. Set the smart thermostat to lower the temperature automatically when no one is home or when the house is asleep, like during the work day or at bedtime. You can also program it to turn up the heat as your morning alarm goes off or before your car pulls into the driveway. Lowering the temperature at key points throughout the day helps cut costs—and by using a programmable thermostat, you eliminate the annoying task of having to manually change it yourself.
