According to Energy Star, with “proper use of a programmable thermostat you can save about $180 every year in energy costs.” They suggest the following to get on your way to saving:
  1. Keep the temperature set at its energy savings set-points for long periods of time (at least eight hours).
  2. Don’t consistently “hold” or over-ride the pre-programmed settings.
  3. Avoid using the hold/permanent/vacation feature to manage day to day temperature settings.
  4. Schedule your thermostat to begin to heat or cool at a set time, to reach your comfort level by the time you come home from work.
  5. If your home has multiple heating or cooling zones, you'll need a programmed setback thermostat for each zone to maximize comfort, convenience and energy savings throughout the house.
  6. If your programmable thermostat runs on batteries, don't forget to change the batteries each year.
