I always hear people say that it is more efficient to let a thermostat regulate the room temperature.
Well, I do not have a thermostat, but I have an electric heater with on internal one. Not a exact one, it goes from 1 till 7, unit unspecified.
I tend to turn it on when I feel cold, and turn it off again when I feel warm. I think this is more efficient because the heater will spent less time being on. I even put a timer on it to ensure I never forget to turn it off. The timer counts down from 1 hour, and then turns the heater off.
so my question: in general, what is more energy efficient? Playing thermostat yourself, or leaving it up to a actual thermostat?
