According to Consumer Reports, some thermostats can save you money. According to Energy Star, an intelligent thermostat can shave about 8 percent off your home’s heating and cooling bills, amounting to an average savings of $50 a year. (Some thermostat manufacturers claim those savings can reach $100 or more.) Of course, non-connected, programmable thermostats—which, according to the Energy Information Administration (PDF) are used in about 42 percent of U.S. homes—can also provide energy savings.
