    I had an energy audit done and then hired this company House Doctors to make the adjustments to my home and I am noticing the savings on my bill already. I think energy efficient repairs are also a tax write-off but I am not for sure.

    While I admittedly just scanned through a good majority of the posts in this thread, there are a few things that I noticed that no one else pointed out.

    1: The OP stated that his thermostat is set to 70*F during the day and 72*F in the evening. WTH? In Ohio?? with a heat pump?? I have natural gas fired forced air heat and my thermostat is never above 68*F in the winter nor lower than 76 in the summer.

    I also have a programmable thermostat and it is set to let the temperature drop to 66*F during the hours that I am at work and then raise the temp back up to 68*F right before nightfall. It also lowers the temp back to 66*F at around 11pm when I go to bed and then raise it back up to 68*F again right before I wake up at 6am. Installing that thermostat and using those temperature settings alone has saved me about 20% on my gas bill.

    2: All of the people who replied to this thread are keyed in on the heat pump as the culprit when the OP posted that the problem existed before he had it installed and that it was, in fact, installed as a measure to help control his electric bill.

    While I will concede that I'm no where near an expert in such matters, it seems to me that while it may not be the single cause of the problem, the thermostat being set to 72*F at night is a BIG part of the problem. Just my $.02

    I'm concerned that some kind of plant is blooming a week earlier along Walden Pond than when whatshisname was there taking notes a long time ago.

    I am thankful for a company gas card.
