Minimize Energy Costs with Smart Thermostats

With a smart thermostat, it’s easy to schedule your heating and cooling systems to run less while you’re away, so you’ll use less energy by cooling your home only while you’re in it. You can program your digital thermostat to turn on right before family members are scheduled to start coming home, so that your home is at the prefect temperature the moment you walk in the door.

Track Your Energy Usage

Most digital thermostats allow you to track your energy usage. You can build a home energy profile that tells you how your energy usage has changed over time, how that’s likely to affect your energy costs in the future, and how you can adjust your heating and cooling preferences to further decrease your energy costs.

Control Your Thermostat Remotely

Another benefit of installing a smart thermostat is that it allows you to control the temperature in your home from anywhere you have an internet connection.  If you’re coming home early and want your home cooled before you arrive, you can simply log into your thermostat app and override your cooling schedule for the day. If you’re going on vacation, you can change your cooling schedule to keep the house warmer while you’re gone.

Got a vacation house to maintain? Your smart thermostat can be programmed to send alerts to let you know if the interior temperature in your home has fallen below, or risen above your set limits, so you can monitor whether or not your systems are working properly from afar.

It Learns How to Control Your Home

Most smart thermostats have movement detectors, so they can sense when members of the household are home and active. Over time, they can learn from your family’s movement patterns when the house needs to be cooled or heated, and they can even use this data to adjust a heating and cooling schedule to account for seasonal changes in how you use your home. That makes it much easier to schedule your heating and cooling needs. They can even monitor the weather, to cool your home more when a heat wave is coming, or heat it more when a cold snap is setting in.
