- Nighttime Energy Savings


Do you turn down your thermostat at night in order to save energy while the household is sleeping?

It's a great idea and is one of the best energy savers. However please think twice before you defeat the purpose by leaving your bedroom window wide open. When you leave the window wide open it cools the whole house down. You will then put more demand on your furnace when you turn up the thermostat in the morning, thereby raising your energy costs.
