It helps to circulate the air more. If one area of your house is warm, while the area with the thermostat is cooler, your furnace will run longer and use more energy. Also, make sure you have a clean air filter, as it will cause the same problem, but worse. Think about trapping the heat in the furance. The thermostat tells it to come on, and it is producing heat, however, hadly any of the heat leaves the furnace, and your house doesn't get much warmer. So, the thermostat never tells the furnace to turn off, but the furnace keeps getting hotter and hotter. If it gets really bad, you could have huge problems that could have been prevented by spending $5-10 on a new air filter.
