Properly adjusting the Thermostat

By properly setting a programmable thermostat, you can reap significant energy savings. However, recent Honeywell research indicates nearly 70 percent of homeowners who own programmable thermostats find them too difficult to operate, and lose out on energy-saving benefits.

To eliminate this challenge and enhance your opportunities for lower energy bills, Honeywell developed a programmable thermostat called VisionPRO® that uses touch-screen technology – similar to the technology used in ATMs – to help prompt you through the programming process, making it effortless.

To take full advantage of the energy-saving benefits of programmable thermostats, you should turn your thermostat back 10-15 percent for eight hours, while away at work or sleeping at night. This can result in savings of up to 33 percent on annual energy bills.

“Because homeowners can easily use the VisionPRO thermostat, they’re programming it correctly and saving money each month on their energy bill,” said Eileen Youds of Honeywell. “VisionPRO has also been very popular because it can be removed from the wall for easy programming.”
