Hello my fellow Frantic Moms!
I know you all have heard it a million times…”program your thermostat”; however, I’m here to tell you to ACTUALLY do it.
Spend 30 minutes (or less) programming your thermostat to save hundreds of dollars a year on your heating and air conditioning bill. Hundreds of dollars in savings is well worth 30 minutes of your time. Most of us don’t make hundreds of dollars in 30 minutes.

Before you begin the programming process, think about what you want the temperature of your home to be during specified blocks of time each day. For example, if you work Monday through Friday and therefore are away from home from 7am to 6pm, you can turn the heat down (not off) in the winter months for the majority of that timeframe. Program the thermostat to turn the heat up to your preferred temperature 30 minutes before you arrive at home so you can walk into a warm and cozy place! Alternate the same process with your air conditioner during warmer seasons.
Chaos to Calm Action Plan: Program your thermostat. Reprogram it during seasonal changes or as often as you need to.
With Love from A Frantic Mom 💜
