With winter upon us it may be time to consider ways to improve the efficiency of your HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) unit.  Studies show that heating and cooling account for about half of the energy use in a typical U.S. home.  One thing you can do to lower this expense is to replace your current thermostat with a smart thermostat.  There are several different types of thermostats available.  There are programmable thermostats which allow you to set different temperatures for different times of the day and smart thermostats which program themselves by learning from your behavior and your desired temperatures for certain days and times throughout the week.  Smart thermostats can also be controlled remotely allowing you to change temperatures miles from home.  Changing to one of these types of devices can save you approximately 20% on your heating and cooling.  Below are some benefits of a smart thermostat.
