Turning your thermostat 10-15 degrees lower for 8 hours a day can save 10% on your energy bill.  You should consider installing a programmable thermostat  *Load up on insulation.  Add more between walls, your attic floor and basement ceiling  *Make sure to disconnect your garden hose and cover the outside faucet with a foam cover.  De Hart Plumbing Heating and Cooling, serving Manhattan Kansas, Junction City Kansas and Wamego Kansas.  De Hart Plumbing and Heating and Cooling - Manhattan, KS 66502
