Control the Temperature in Your Home No Matter Where You Are!
While there are numerous benefits of living an energy-efficient lifestyle, reducing the AC during the peak of a brutal Coachella Valley summer is simply not an option. However, your HVAC system is responsible for about 70% of your energy bill.
That’s why, in addition to using efficient LED light bulbs and turning off your appliances when you leave your home, it’s also important to consider energy-saving methods for maintaining your home comfort.
By scheduling regular HVAC maintenance and installing a smart thermostat, you can do well by the planet and your wallet!
4 Reasons to Switch to a Smart Thermostat
If you forget to turn down the AC in your home before leaving for that long-awaited summer vacation, you’ll be coming back to an unnecessarily high bill. With smart technology, you can connect to your thermostat using WiFi. That way, if you remember that your AC is still running on high while you’re mid-flight, you can turn your system down as soon as you have an internet connection. And on the way home, you can turn your air conditioner back up so you won’t be walking into a stuffy, hot home upon your return!
The point of a smart thermostat is to save energy while providing you and your family with the same level of comfort. When installing your thermostat, you can set unique preferences depending on your schedule, so you won’t have to worry about whether you remembered to adjust the thermostat on your way out the door. Moreover, your smart thermostat will also keep track of your energy use and let you know if any issues arise such as inefficiencies or repair needs, so you’ll be able to address them before they can lead to higher bills!
Aligns With Your Schedule
To maximize your system’s efficiency, you’ll want to make sure it is turned down while everyone is out of the house. However, it’s easy to forget about dialing back or turning up the thermostat when people are constantly coming and going from work, school or other leisure activities. A smart thermostat saves you the hassle, as you can adjust it to fit your family’s unique schedule so it will make all the necessary adjustments for you!
Although we work hard to make sure we are taking care of everything at work and around the house, we’re only human! Sometimes, we just need a friendly reminder that an important task has slipped through the cracks.
Some helpful features of a smart thermostat include letting you know:
- That repairs are needed.
- How much energy is being used.
- When the air filters need to be replaced.
- When it is due for a maintenance check.
