Outsmart Your Thermostat For Each Season

With the ever-changing Texas seasons, it is important to fluctuate our thermostats accordingly to stay on top of our electric bill. According to a study done by the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, nearly 90% of Americans say that they have never programmed their thermostat, simply because they don't know how.

Programming your thermostat is actually very simple and can save Americans at least 10% a year on heating and cooling costs. You can achieve that 10% by turning your thermostat back by 7-10 degrees F from its normal setting for 8 hours a day, according to the U.S Department of Energy.

The first step is to pick the right thermostat tailored to your needs. There are four types of programmable thermostats that each include a distinctive scheduling style. 

  • 7-day programming. Best for individuals or families with erratic schedules, since this is the most flexible option. It lets you program a different heating/cooling schedule for each day of the week. ...

Start thinking inside the door frame and create something unique. Doors are overlooked so often that customizing and personalizing them will make a world of a difference. Here are seven ideas courtesy of House Logic.

1. Fancy Trim: A little well placed trim, along with a coat of paint really goes a long way. It is so simple, easy to do and will boost your home value. 

2. Faux Stained Glass: Glass doors are a great addition, and stained glass doors are even better! Want...
