Improving your home's energy efficiency saves money, important resources, and cuts down on pollution. A smart thermostat not only makes changes fast and easy, but they can recommend small adjustments you didn't know would help.
Take a look at the biggest benefits behind the latest thermostats available:
Programmable thermostats have been around for decades. They allow you to schedule heating or cooling periods throughout the day, automatically turning the heat down after people have gone to sleep or left for work, and turning it up again after a few hours. The potential savings they offer are significant, but studies show that 90 percent of homeowners don't really use those features. They're just too complicated, and people would rather adjust their thermostats manually than going through the learning process.
With today's smart thermostats, you can often preprogram heating and cooling schedules. Because this is done over easy-to-use applications on the computer, tablet or cell phone, the features are more likely to be put in motion.
Tapped into Wi-Fi networks, these thermostats can be adjusted from home or away via mobile device. You can also observe use, which is helpful for families with working parents who want to keep temperatures reasonable whether they're at home or at work.
The majority of smart thermostats give owners feedback on heating and cooling habits and their energy use. They can even offer suggestions for cutting back. These can easily be put into place, saving you enough money to pay for your investment.
