I bought a house many years ago and the gas budget for that home was $157 per month. It was an older home but fairly well insulated. It also had a boiler for heat. Once I installed the programmable thermostat I noticed my budget dropping each year until it bottomed out at $106 per month. That programmable thermostat paid for itself over and over again.

I have put one in every place I have owned since. There is a savings by reducing heat or A/C when no one is home and when sleeping.

I have mine set at 73* for both the heat and A/C when we are home. At night for sleeping the heat drops to 64* and the A/C is set for 77* when no one is home.

I would not be without one.
