According to figures from the US Department of Energy, the average household in America spends $2,200 a year on heating and cooling bills. A significant proportion of this is due to waste. By installing an Energy Star rated thermostat such as the Honeywell RTH700D this cost can be cut by as much as 33%.

This is a remarkable saving that adds up to over $700 a year. If you consider that the Honeywell RTH7500D programmable thermostat only costs $60 at reputable online retailers such as Amazon you can see that it is a must-have device for your home.

The Honeywell thermostat is easy to self-install and can be made to regulate nearly any 24-volt heating or cooling system including both single and multi stage systems, separate heating and cooling systems, air conditioner units, gas pumps and electric fire places. The Honeywell RTH7500D itself can be run on batteries or from the mains.

Once the Honeywell RTH7500D is installed it is easy to program. It uses smart response technology and an easy-to-understand menu-driven interface that will allow you to control the temperature in your house for every day of the week. And within each day you can set up four different periods. Thus, you can have the heating/cooling on low while you are sleeping, have it turn up just before you wake up, have it go off while you are at work and have it come on again just before you return home from work. This means the HVAC system in your house is always running efficiently and you are more comfortable.

The Honeywell RTH7500D also has the capacity to account for daylight saving time changes and also has a vacation mode that allows you to go away during the Christmas holidays without fearing that your water pipes will burst during a sudden freeze.

The thermostat is accurate to within one degree Fahrenheit and can change instantly between heating and cooling systems to make sure the temperature in your house is exactly as you want it.

It is amazing how having the ability to really control the temperature in your house can not only make you more comfortable but also save you money. And not only are you saving money you are also using less electricity that has been produced by burning fossil fuels. This lowers your carbon output and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

The Honeywell RTH7500D Conventional 7-Day Programmable Thermostat comes with a one-year warranty.

When you consider the above it is hard to think of a valid reason why you shouldn't buy a Honeywell RTH7500D thermostat today.
