Do you have a nasty (usually brown) old thermostat? Like this:
Do you want your old place to look like it has a whole new heating system? Do you want to save the earth one little unit of energy at a time? Do you want to save money too? Then you need a new programable thermostat!!! Installing this cool new gadget is as easy as 1-2-3!
1)Take off old thermostat from wall, but be careful, they are usually full of mercury so maybe get a friend to hold it while you unscrew and untwist the wires from the thing. No need to disconnect power as it’s low voltage (but um, I did because I saw this thing where this guy was electrocuted through his drive though window (he was a bank teller) and then he was messed up his whole life, so I have a fear of that now).
2)Set the date and time on your fancy new thermostat. See the great thing about these is that they will kick on your crummy old energy sucking furnace exactly when you say, every day! And you can set them differently for weekends and stuff.
I got my thermostat at Home Depot for 39.97 (if you live outside Oregon add tax), how cheap is that? And I got a 7 day programmable! Try this! It’s easy!
