Get a Programmable Thermostat

ThermostatIf you leave your thermostat on while nobody's home during the day, and if you don't turn it down a few degrees every night before you go to bed, then you're probably paying too much for heating. A programmable thermostat (cost: under $100) can automatically lower the temperature setting every weekday while you're at work and every night while you sleep. Having the temperature setting lowered to 55F for 8 hours every weekday (don't make it too cold while you're at work or the plumbing might freeze and other household items may be damaged by the cold) and 60F for 8 hours every night will lower your heating costs by about 15% if you previously ran your thermostat at 72F all the time.
