  1. At the Energy Doctors we have all our techs carry programmable thermostats on the truck in case some one needs one when we are out on an audit.

  2. We at RethinkHEAT feel that if everyone purchased an infrared heater, this whole oil problem would have to be put to an end. The alternative of “NOW” is infrared!

  3. Programmable thermostats are really easy to install and very affordable.

  5. this post makes it sound easy, thank you.
