Comment on Can i set my thermostat very low in summer? by Jim (Thermal Leak Detector) http://www.utilitybillbusters.com/articles/cooling/can-i-set-my-thermostat-very-low-in-summer/comment-page-1/#comment-12166 Jim (Thermal Leak Detector) Sat, 16 Apr 2011 23:49:16 +0000 http://www.utilitybillbusters.com/articles/?p=485#comment-12166 You're right when you say you can set the temperature to whatever you want, but you're going to pay for it! A good rule of thumb I like to follow is that for every degree you lower your thermostat, you can see a roughly 4% increase on your summer air conditioning bill. On a $200 bill you're looking at ~$8 / per degree... the question a homeowner needs to ask him or herself is if it's worth it.

Comment on Turning down your thermostat in the winter by David Andersen http://www.utilitybillbusters.com/articles/heating/turning-down-your-thermostat-in-the-winter/comment-page-1/#comment-11984 David Andersen Mon, 11 Apr 2011 01:48:17 +0000 http://www.utilitybillbusters.com/articles/?p=14#comment-11984 Hi John, The furnace does run to run the temperature back up to the required 68 degrees, but typically this time is less than the "maintenance" temperature time, or the time to keep the house at 68 all the time. If it takes more energy to run back up from 60 to 68, than perhaps try reducing it to 62 or something similar. The fact is, this type of practice is proven over and over again. This is the whole basis and idea behind setback or programmable thermostats. If they didn't work, they a) wouldn't be energy star rated, b) wouldn't be recommended by energy contractors and energy auditors, and c) they wouldn't be featured and promoted by energy companies for energy star and savings rebates programs. Unfortunately, its probably the application of the technology rather than the practice itself. Hi John,
