How You Can Benefit from Having Programmable Thermostats Installed

How energy efficient is your household? If you are not sure what we are referring to by "energy efficiency" we are talking about whether you waste a lot of energy in your home.

As we rush to unlock the front door and get into the warm, we never give a second thought to how the central heating actually works, or consider that it might not work when we turn it on. It's just something that is there, and it's only when it is taken away do we realise how important it truly is. At the heart of the vast majority of central heating systems in the US is the boiler, which is undoubtedly the hardest working appliance in the average home. In fact, it is worked so hard that it's perhaps not surprising that faults do sometimes develop.

Save Money on Energy Bills During Cool Weather Months

According to the latest information from U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average United States household energy bill is expected to rise by 12% this year -- an increase of more than 20 percent since 2007.
