The Benefits of a Smart Thermostat in Your Home
Your thermostat is critical to your home comfort! It lets you control the environment of your home to fit your needs and maintain a consistent temperature that you feel best in. Investing in a smart thermostat can make an even greater difference in your home comfort by allowing you even more control.
- Look for a programmable smart thermostat that will allow you to preset different temperatures for different times of the day. Most of these thermostats will also allow you to differentiate between weekly and weekend schedules, so you can adjust to your lifestyle.Some of these thermostats can be controlled through your Wi-Fi devices, so you can change your settings even when you’re not home! This is great for any last minute changes you’d like to make to your home’s internal temperature. Nearly all models are able to override your settings remotely but not alter any of your pre-sets.
- Try to find a thermostat that can keep your home energy conscious. Aim for a temperature setback period of about 8 hours. If your home adjusts by 1 degree every hour, you’ll see a 1% reduction in costs on your utility bills. This process is most effectively used in the winter, as you can reduce the temperature in your home by at least 10 degrees while you’re out which in turn will decrease your utility costs by at least 10%!
- With a smart thermostat, you’ll find it easy to program decreases and increases to your home’s temperature to match the hours when you’re actually there. A smart thermostat allows you to enjoy your home comfort systems at their fullest capacity while allowing you to be energy efficient and save you money.
