Did you know that if your home is heated with a Solid Fuel a Programable Thermostat is not required? The major problem with that statement is that most folks aren’t quite sure what solid fuels are? Basically, there are three types of fuel:
- Solid Fuel – things that burn to create heat, things like wood.
- Liquid Fuel – this is mostly fuel oil, kerosene, or LP
- Gaseous Fuels – obviously the name is a give-away.
If your home is heated with either liquid fuel or Gaseous Fuel then the Vermont Energy Code requires that you have a Programable Thermostat that will:
- Raise the temperature when you are home
- Lower the temperature when you are NOT home.
- There are thermostats available that can actually sense when someone is in the room and will alter the temperatures automatically.
- Lower the temperature when you are home – Air Conditioning
- Raise the temperature when you are NOT home – Air Conditioning
How much does the “Average American Family” spend over the course of a year on energy?
I hope you didn’t cheat and look ahead – the Average American Family spends about $2,000 each year on Energy Costs. And of that total Energy Cost about one-half is spent on Heating and Cooling.
- Did you know that a Programable Thermostat can save you between 15% and 20% each year on your Energy Costs?
- Did you know that Programable Thermostats are eligible for Energy Rebates?
