How Smart Thermostats Save You Money

Save Money With Smart Thermostats

If you’re relieved that the high cooling bills from the summer are over, don’t get too comfortable. With winter approaching, be prepared to shift energy expenses to keep your house warm during the cold months. Luckily, there is an easy solution that won’t break the bank – install a smart thermostat in your home. By installing one of these devices, you can regulate the temperature inside your home based on daily and seasonal temperature swings, while at the same time, doing your part to consume less energy.

Here Are Some Benefits Of Smart Thermostats

  • Save On Energy Costs: A major benefit of a smart thermostat is that you won’t be heating (or cooling) your home during times when it’s empty. You can program the thermostat to turn the heat down during the day when your family is at work, school, running errands, etc. The thermostat will start warming the house up so it’s nice and toasty when everybody arrives back home at the end of the day.
  • Energy Consumption Reports: Your smart thermostat can analyze your energy usage patterns and provide you with hard data. The report details how much energy you use during the day and at what times. Energy used during “peak” hours will cost more the “off-peak” and typically runs through the daytime hours, extending later into the evening during winter and when Daylight Saving Time has ended. With these reports, you can adjust your energy consumption and many utility companies will give you credits based on your adjusted usage.
  • Peak Usage Adjustments: This is another money-saving advantage of a smart thermostat. Based on the findings from your energy usage reports, you can easily program the thermostat to lower the temperature during peak hours and crank it back up during off-peak hours.
  • Compatible With Other Smart Devices: Smart thermostats can be controlled by your phone or other devices. This makes it easy to adjust the thermostat if you are coming home from work early or arriving home in the middle of February after a relaxing tropical vacation.
