Some estimates are even more optimistic. According to the California Energy Commission, you can save 5 percent for each degree you set your thermostat below 70. Dialing your thermostat back is a great way to trim costs, but it’s hardly the only option for economically minded homeowners.

I cut my power bill by $130. My condo is all windows and difficult to heat. After a new furnace installation, the installer said to leave the fan on all the time. But it sometime blew cold air, so, I tried setting it on “auto.” The temperature was more constant and my power bill dropped $130.
I told my friends and they did the same – all with better results. Installers must have stock in power companies !
