Improving your home’s sustainability can go a long way toward saving energy, lowering monthly bills, and helping the environment at the same time. There are many ways you can help increase your home’s green profile, and most of them won’t break the bank.

Thermostat Installation

Installing a new thermostat is a great way to reduce your energy usage and save money. Programmable thermostats allow you to control the temperature of your home whether you’re there or not. Some models even let you access the thermostat from your Smartphone. Replacing your thermostat this spring will help keep your home more comfortable this summer, while you save on those air conditioning bills.


The average cost of thermostat installation is between $200 and $250 for a digital thermostat.

Total costs range from $50 for a manual thermostat you install yourself to $700 for an electronic thermostat.

Tips to Get It Done Right

• Digital and electronic thermostats cost the most upfront, but will save you the most over time.
