Crank Up the Air Conditioning and Save Money ?
"Southern California Edison urged its customers Wednesday to buy an Energy Star-labeled programmable thermostat -- and said it will throw in a $20 rebate for those who do.
They are easy to install, and once you set it, you can forget it. You won't have to worry about cooling an empty house when you're away. Customers who use programmable thermostats can save up to 30 percent on the air- conditioning portion of their electric bill.
Air conditioners account for an average of 150 kilowatt-hours of electricity per month and are one of the costliest energy users in a home, according to SCE.
Programmable thermostats can keep room temperatures within two degrees of the desired temperature, and they cost as little as $35, according to SCE, which is ready to throw in a $20 rebate as well."
