I've been a homeowner for about eight years now and the things I've learned in that time surprise even me. I am in no way a "Mr. Fix It" like my Dad, but to other people who have no clue, I seem pretty far ahead of the game:-)
I've painted the inside and out of the house, replaced the floors, done landscaping numerous times, had a new roof put on, put up pictures, and the list goes on and on. What you learn as a homeowner is that there is ALWAYS something new to be done.
Cabinets, counters, new appliances...all contestants for the next round of my home's makeover. Being a home isn't all that bad when you think of it. Someone takes care of you and cleans you...OK, it's kinda like being a baby. To the point I go....
When is the last time you thought about replacing your home's thermostat? I honestly had never really thought about it until recently. With the economy being as tough as it is, more and more people are looking for ways to save money. It only makes sense that the device that controls your house's temperature could save you more than a few dollars a year if run correctly.
I personally have an older thermostat, but after quite a bit of research I'm thinking of upgrading to a new digital programmable thermostat. The benefits keep more green in the bank account and it's upgrading is a "green" thing to do. You can read more about all the benefits via the link below. You will also get instructions on how to replace your current thermostat if you are a "Mr. Fix It" type of guy or gal.
What kid of thermostat do you have? By the first of the year, I will be a proud Digital Programmable Thermostat owner. Who's coming with me? Who in this cold forsaken winter weather is coming with me? OK, enough with the bad Jerry Maguire dialogue.
More digital thermostat updates to come in the future. Peace!
PS: Anyone out there have a digital thermostat already that can shed some light on what I'm missing?
