Fall is here and temperatures are dropping (at least for those of us in the northern hemisphere). According to the Department of Energy, 48 percent of energy consumption can be attributed to heating and cooling. So when the seasons change, be sure you change your thermostat. In the winter, make it 2 degrees cooler; in the summer, make it 2 degrees warmer.
By adjusting your thermostat 2 degrees for a year, you can save 2,000 pounds of CO2. That’s like saving 100 gallons of gasoline! Below is a fun little video from the Department of Energy that gives some tips for setting your thermostat and for saving some money.
