One Degree Difference

Savings you can make with a simple adjustment to your thermostat.

I am not sure I believed it the first time I saw it either. Changing your thermostat setting by just one degree can add up to big energy savings.

If you raise the temperature one degree in the summer and lower it one degree in the winter months, you will save energy.

You save enough energy, just by the one degree change, to power your entire home for one day. Just by making that small change to your system you will save money because heating and air conditioning makes up roughly 54 percent of your power usage.

Give it shot, what do you have to lose? You just might save some energy which will save you money.
