Advantages of a Smart Thermostat
The future of home energy solutions is here! With the advent of the smart thermostat, you can now be in control of a more efficient, cost-effective, energy-conscious home. But if you’ve only just recently heard of smart thermostats, you might be wondering what exactly they do. Here are some of the advantages they offer.
Energy Bill Savings
The most attractive advantage of the smart thermostat is obviously the money you can save on your home energy bills. By shifting the temperature and operation schedule of your home HVAC unit throughout the day, a smart wireless thermostat can be used to achieve optimal energy efficiency, thereby cutting your energy costs. Depending on your current energy situation, you can save anywhere from $50 to $150 annually!
Have you ever wanted complete control of your thermostat while you were away from home? A smart thermostat can make this a possibility. Select models of smart thermostats offer remote management apps that can be operated from your phone.
Let’s say you wanted to shut off your air conditioner while you’re at work, and then turn it back on half an hour before you get home. If your smart thermostat has a remote management app, it’s a snap to pull this off. You’ll arrive at a home that’s already being cooled to the perfect temperature.
A conventional thermostat simply isn’t able to indicate operational problems like a smart thermostat is. Depending on which model of smart thermostat you have, you may be able to receive convenient alerts that point you directly to home energy problems. Now, you can forget about manually keeping track of when you last changed your air filter, because your thermostat will remember for you!
