Heating & Cooling

Space heating is the largest energy cost in the average U.S. home, contributing to over 50% of a homeowner's energy bill in the Mid-Atlantic region. There are many different actions you can take to reduce your heating (and cooling) bills. 

Programmable thermostats are a great way to save money on your energy bills. You can save an estimated 10% a year on your heating and cooling bills by installing a programmable thermostat in your home.
