Now that we are all spending an inordinate amount of time at home, it’s essential to optimize your heating and cooling system. With increased use, comes increased misuse, which causes energy bills to skyrocket while heating and cooling efficiency diminish. That’s why its time to let a smart thermostat take over your home HVAC operations! Here’s how installing a smart thermostat in your home will benefit you and your family:
Minimize Energy Costs
Smart thermostats have automated scheduling capabilities that can be pre-set to match your preferences. This allows for exponential energy savings, as interrupted heating or cooling cycles become things of the past. You can save up to 15% on cooling costs and up to 12% on heating costs with this technology! Pro tip: set your thermostat to decrease at night for optimal sleep.
Remote Control Capabilities
With a smart thermostat, you’ll be able to control your home HVAC system from anywhere. Remote access, such as this, proves advantageous for those that wish to control their system from their couch! Smart thermostats now come with mobile apps, that you can download on any smartphone, which enables you to control your home’s climate from remote locations. Whether you are traveling in the future, or you simply don’t feel like walking to your wall-mounted system, you will be able to heat or cool your home as you please, at any time.
When it comes to remembering mundane tasks, we all fall short. And, heating and cooling our homes fall under the “out of sight, out of mind” category. We have all left our homes, at some point or another, with our air conditioning or heating still cranked on high. This is costing you. When you are not home, your HVAC system should be off to avoid unnecessary utility costs.
With a smart thermostat, comes a motion sensor setting that detects movement in a room, and adjusts the temperature and system settings accordingly. This is great for those that are oftentimes forgetful.
Additionally, smart thermostats will observe the weather outside and correspondingly react. This further optimizes energy-savings.
