Casa Verde: Fast Thermostat Facts

If you're concerned about keeping a green home, energy efficiency goes hand in hand with eco home products and concepts. And since it's getting chilly again, I thought I'd give you a little refresher on ways to keep your house as energy efficient as possible. It's generally recommended that, to save money on heating, try to keep your thermostat set at a reasonable 68 degrees. Every degree warmer you set your thermostat will increase your energy use by 6-8 percent, which also means a rise in your heating bill. So, instead of notching up the thermostat, take a quick tip from me and layer up instead.

I live in Ottawa, Canada and our city is starting a program to provide free programable thermostats to all house holds this fall! The best part is that they cover the instillation cost AND pay you $25 for making the switch! Canvas you'll local municipality and ask the same. It's amazing what a few concerned citizens can change in their town.
