A programmable thermostat enables you to pre-program your heating and cooling preferences. Models vary, but you can purchase one for under $100. The energy and cost savings from a programmable thermostat will be apparent almost immediately, particularly because you can set it to regulate the temperature when you are asleep or away from home. When comparing models, consider how much customization you need, and whether you want certain features, such as a backlit display and smart recovery capabilities.
