Warming Up to Climate Control
Written by Rick
CNet news is running an article called "Warming up to climate control tech".  Good article on how more-and-more homeowners are embracing technology to save energy, thus saving $'s.   In particular, the author discusses an emerging trend of homeowners signing up to have their energy use monitored in real time by the utility... "During peak periods, when electricity costs the most and can be harder to come by, these providers reduce energy consumption via a command, sent to a computer on your power meter, that slightly throttles air conditioners or other select appliances. ".

While I'm not yet convinced that I should allow an outside utility or service  to dynamically change anything in my home, I am a big fan of using technologies like programmable thermostats and multi-zone HVAC systems to maintain my own control over climate in my home... saving energy and $'s.
