Winterize Your Home: Program Your Thermostat

Programmable thermostat Though we're already well into winter, many of us are still seeking green solutions to keeping our living spaces warm and comfy. This week's tips are about how to winterize your home in ecofriendly ways.

Tip #1: Program Your Thermostat
Install a programmable thermostat (we show you step-by-step how to do it here) and never again forget when it's time to turn off the heat. Tell it just once and it'll always cut your usage when you're out of the house or asleep. Plus, you'll still be able to have the heat on when you want it.
