Save Money and Stay Warm
Colder days are among us and we know you’re piling on the sweaters, jackets, and socks to stay warm all season long. When the temperatures drop, you may begin to dread that end-of-the-month utility bill that grew in number to keep your home warm. This is when you start looking for ways to save energy and money.
One of our favorite ways to encourage our customers to save money is by installing a smart thermostat in their homes.
Benefits of a Smart Thermostat
Thermostats have come a long way in terms of creating an efficient and effective control center for your heating and cooling. Not only do they look sleek, but they are also user-friendly and give you complete control of your home temperature.
While the initial cost of a smart thermostat may be higher than a traditional one, these units will pay for themselves and then some over time. With the ability to create an efficient heating schedule, you can expect your smart thermostat to save you between 15-20% on heating and cooling costs.
One of the more popular features of a smart thermostat is the ability to program it to match your schedule. If you and the kids are out of the home from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m, you don’t really need the house to be kept warm for all those hours. A smart thermostat can begin changing the temperature as you leave for the day, and bring it back to comfortable levels just in time for your 5 p.m. arrival home!
Additionally, they’re called “smart” thermostats for a reason. If you haven’t had time to program your schedule, some models will simply build one for you as they detect a pattern in your temperature settings.
While we’re not wishing fall away, the holidays are just around the corner and soon you’ll be busier than ever. If you’re at grandma’s for Thanksgiving and realize you forgot to set the right temperature at home, no worries! Your smart thermostat is easily accessible from your smartphone.
