According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a programmable thermostat can save you up to 15 percent off of your annual heating and cooling bills. The nice thing about a programmable thermostat is that you can set once at the beginning of each season and leave it alone. Replacing an old-style thermostat that you have to manually control with a new programmable one is not that difficult – even a novice do-it-yourselfer should be able to do it by themselves.
