Take advantage of the convenience of the ability to control many programable thermostats from your favorite electronic device.

TIP! If you are a homeowner, or if you can get permission from your landlord, install double-paned windows in place of any single panes in your home. Double pane windows help minimize your air conditioning use in the summer by keeping the cooler air inside your home.
