"I'm with you on this one PJ (for once!). All else being equal (or equally bad), setback has the potential to save more than downsizing source equipment, although if the AC is grossly oversized, say, 200% or more, who knows. It's true that…"

"On the cooling side: 1: It takes 10 minutes of run time for pressures to stabilize in most air conditioner systems. 2: Rated efficiency doesn't happen until pressures stabilize 3: Oversized systems rarely run longer than 10 minutes at a time,…"

"I've found setback thermostats to be VERY effective when combined with Time of use Electricity rates. In the summer our rate is 4.5 cents per KWH except for 2-7pm weekdays. 2-7pm weekdays the rate goes to 23 cents. Having the thermostat set for…"

"How about it auditors?  Does anyone have any data  showing changes in electical consumption from one year to the next by using a  thermostat setback with electric heat?   It would be helpful in this conversation and…"

"Power Factor devices do not work from an ROI perspective in homes because of the billing structure of many utility companies for residential dwellings.  These devices are better suited for commercial applications."

"a slightly more polite answer gets a reply to your questions: TK> For me, 5% of total consumption (not just heat) would mean less than $50 a year.  Do you think it would be fair to say this savings is so small as to be a rounding error?…"
