Both heating and cooling systems are incredibly useful during periods of severe temperature, although the costs to keep them running can be discouraging to homeowners looking to save. A feature on the Washington Post website dated October 31, 2014 discusses how the observance of Daylight Savings Time actually adversely affects the way people use heating and cooling systems. The article stresses that the observance forced people to rely more on their heating and cooling systems during time periods when they could just be asleep. The article then cites a study conducted in the state of Indiana last 2005 that saw a sharp spike in energy use for indoor climate control systems.
