Pass it Along Green

Our Daily Green recently received an upgraded programmable thermostat from our local utility company. It was part of a local state initiative toward energy savings and efficiency. We had an older programmable thermostat. There is nothing wrong with it and we would like to offer it to one of our readers for free. To qualify, simply add a comment to this page about a way you conserve energy in your home. In the spirit of reusing and wasting nothing, we would like to pass this thermostat along.

A programmable thermostat is one of the simplest investments you can make to regular your energy usage. It will automatically raise or lower your temperature based on the time of day. You can lower it at night, when you're at work, or hold it steady at a lower temperature when you're away.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,
The average household spends more than $2,200 a year on energy bills - nearly half of which goes to heating and cooling. Homeowners can save about $180 a year by properly setting their programmable thermostats and maintaining those settings.
A few minutes of simple programming can give a homeowner peace of mind as well as savings in the bank. We are offering our Honeywell CT3200. It is a discontinued model, but it works perfectly fine. The owner's manual is available online: HERE.
