The U.S. Department of Energy recommends using programmable and smart home thermostats as a practical and cost-effective way to manage indoor temperatures in Sumner County, Tennessee, and throughout the country. These advanced devices can save your family money while ensuring the greatest comfort during every season of the year. Here are three ways to save money by adding home automation and a smart thermostat as part of your home HVAC system.
Lowering Energy Costs When You Are Away from Home
Smart and programmable thermostats are designed to allow you to set up schedules that can adjust temperature settings for times when you are typically away from home. This can allow you to enjoy lower utility costs while maintaining comfortable temperatures during your time at home.
Monitoring and Adjusting Temperatures Remotely
The heating and cooling experts at ENERGY STAR recommend smart home thermostats as part of your home automation efforts. These devices allow you to monitor temperature levels by using your computer, tablet or smartphone. You can then make adjustments as necessary from work, school or anywhere else you happen to be. If you are coming home earlier than expected, your Wi-fi connected smart home thermostat allows you to adjust your air conditioning or heating remotely to ensure that your home is at the perfect temperature upon your arrival.
Maintaining Monthly Records
Depending on what type of smart thermostat you choose, you may be able to pull monthly reports on the energy usage of your heating and air conditioning system. This can provide you with valuable information about the performance of your system over time and can alert you to issues that could be affecting the efficiency of your HVAC system and its ability to produce comfortable indoor temperatures for you and your family.
