Task of the Month

Did you know that you can get a rebate of up to $100 on the purchase of a smart or programmable thermostat?

Home Depot's website actually tells you (while you shop!) what rebates you qualify for on new thermostat purchases.  Pretty neat, huh? 

As you’re browsing on the Home Depot website, look below the price tag.  If rebates are available, simply click a button for all the details on how to take advantage of the rebate and get money back!  DTE Energy and Consumers Energy websites also offer information about available rebates.

Speaking of getting money back, did you know that you can save 10% or more on your energy bills by installing a programmable or smart thermostat?  For every one degree that you adjust your temperature, you save up to 3% on your energy bill!

So, in any season, you can control your energy use by making sure that the temperature of your home, while still comfortable, is as close to the temperature outside as possible.
