    Behavioral response leaves less margin for error . human interaction can work for or against. Most programamble thermostats allow for comfort control prior to weather . A savy homeowner who installs a programable devise is the same homeowner who will take advantage of the benefits .. Meaning that the installation was done with intent…however most of the older homeowners , boomers are simply not interested in thinking about ROI and purchace to return rate …The savings stretch and life expectancy are miles apart
