A programmable thermostat helps you save on energy costs by giving you complete control of the heating or cooling schedule in your house. While most of us know not to place a thermostat near a heat source like a stove or space heater, it is also a mistake to place one near a television or lamp. Any electric product that generates heat can trick a thermostat into reading the room as warmer than it actually is, forcing cooling units to work longer and use more energy. By placing it away from any sources of heat, you can keep your programmable thermostat working properly.
