While at the Home Depot event for Stiggy’s Dogs we were able to add energy efficient products to the home so their energy bills would be less each month. Going’ green to save some green $$$!
Some of the things we replaced were the furnace filters, light bulbs, and the caulk around windows and doors. Some of the things we added were insulation around the water heater and heat ducts, insulation behind light switch covers, and a programmable thermostat.
These are all inexpensive ways to save money and make you home ready for winter. Anything that will keep me warm and save me money I am all for :)
I was lucky enough to come home with the *NEW* HoneyWell WIFI Programmable Thermostat (AKA a new gadget my hubby got giddy over).
The most exciting thing about the thermostat (yes, they are exciting….just ask my hubby) is that you can control your thermostat via your smart phone or a computer! Why would this matter? Because if you leave your home for a long period of time like for a vacation, you can turn off your heater/AC unit to save money and then on your way home you can turn it back on so that when you get home your house is a comfortable temperature.
Oh man! I wish I would have had one of these when we lived in Las Vegas. We would turn off the air when we left town to visit family and even when we got home at midnight the house would be so hot we couldn’t put the kids in their beds because their bedding was literally HOT. W would have to hold our sleeping kids while standing under the ceiling fan until the house was cooled down enough to put them in bed.
This thermostat also has online help available if you ever need it, a free app for your phone, programmable for 7 days, and a touchscreen control panel. And when it is used as directed you can save 33% on your energy bill!!!
So do you want one???
