Are programmable thermostats effective some say bringing temp back wastes more energy than it saves?

Independent testing labs would disagree. I don't think that the majority of all commercial buildings and governments in the "World", would be doing it, if it didn't save $ and energy. Check out the savings just the government realized, when they did this during the last oil crisis. Honeywell has a good consumer site as does the government on energy savings using setback and reset strategies. http://yourhome.honeywell.com/Consumer/Cultures/en-US/Solutions/Energy+Efficiency/save_energy.htm lc
