    19 January 2012: We've all heard the order, "Leave the thermostat alone. Put on a sweater, if you're cold."

    An analysis of 100,000 datapoints collected by EnergyHub’s MercuryTM, indicates that if you followed those instructions while living in Vermont, you would, on average, save $500 a month.

    Energy Hub also reports that people in Vermont set their thermostats lower than users in Oaklahoma: 63.4 F degrees in Vermont and 70 F degrees in Oaklahoma. What do they save with a sweater?

    Go figure. Does this mean people in warmer states don't buy as many sweaters? I don't know. Read More.

    I stopped pushing my thermostat up during the day and have made sure it is down to 63 at night. Luckily l have two dogs who love to give off their body heat while taking up most of the bed ;)
