Here in Southeast Tennessee, we have a very unpredictable climate. It’s common for the weather to change very quickly. There can be wide ranges of temperatures from day to day. And even from hour to hour on some days, no matter which season we’re in. This can make regulating the temperature in your home quite a chore. And constantly having to reach for the thermostat can be a headache. But did you know that it can hurt your wallet as well? Thankfully, there’s a simple solution. Smart thermostats bring convenience and savings into your home – and help you combat waste as a bonus.
How Does a Smart Thermostat Save You Money?
Check out these 3 main ways that a smart thermostat saves you money by helping you control the temperature of your home.
1. Accessing It From Anywhere
Using your smart device, you can control your smart thermostat from wherever you can get a signal. Easily adjust your home’s heating and cooling when you’re on the go. Simply open the thermostat app on your phone, and the temperature control is at your fingertips. This is an especially helpful feature to use if you forgot to adjust the thermostat before you left home, or if you’ve had a change of plans.
2. Reducing Wasted Energy
It’s hard to avoid wasting energy in your home, no matter how much you try. But small adjustments in how you handle your heating and cooling can make a big difference. We tend to reach for the thermostat when the outside temperature suddenly gets warmer or colder. And then we reach for it again the next time the weather changes. While this may seem reasonable to us, it actually makes the heating and air conditioning system work overtime to keep up.
Smart thermostats are easy to program so that you don’t fall into a costly heating and cooling cycle. Whether you need the heat to turn on just before you get home, or for it to turn off when you head to bed. Your smart thermostat will follow whatever schedule you set on the app.
3. Getting Clear Reports
Besides just following a schedule to heat and cool your home, smart thermostats can send detailed energy reports. These reports range from how much energy you have used over a period of time, to how you can optimize your heating and cooling system. This helps eliminate a lot of guesswork and trial and error, leaving you with easy savings.
