Install a thermostat & help your home become more energy efficient

March 2013

During this exceptionally cold Winter it’s important to be mindful of how you are consuming energy in the home … Lowe Electrical in Leicester would like to share with you just one idea to make your home more energy-efficient.

Install a programmable thermostat and a timer for the water heater

Just as you would switch off the lights before heading out to work, you should turn the heating down while you’re away. You can easily do this by programming a thermostat for a higher temperature when you’re away from home in warmer months, or lower in cooler months.

Likewise, only heat your water when you’re there to use it…you definitely want to make sure you are not heating the whole tank needlessly.
