Would you like to save a bit of money this winter in your Summerlin, Nevada, home? One of the best ways to save money and energy is by using your smart thermostat wisely. Let’s look at four ways that your connected thermostat can keep some of your hard-earned money in your wallet this winter.
Pre-Set the Heating Schedule
If you have a regular schedule, where you leave and arrive at the same time each day, schedule the furnace to run at a lower temperature when you’re not at home. You can set a smart thermostat for weekday settings and one for the weekend when you have a different schedule. Lowering the temperature when there are no occupants helps to lower your energy bill, therefore, you save money.
Control the Temperature Remotely
When you’re away from home, either on vacation or at work and your plans change, like arriving home sooner than expected, you can control the temperature from your mobile device. Simply download the compatible app, and you can adjust the temperature before you walk in the door, so your home is nice and comfortable.
Automatic Temperature Adjustments
Some smart thermostats sense when someone is in the house and when there are changes in temperature or humidity. The thermostat can then make adjustments to the temperature if somebody suddenly fires up the oven or takes a hot shower. The thermostat will auto program itself based on consumer’s habits.
Track Energy Use
Most smart thermostats allow you to track your energy usage with a report sent to your mobile device or computer. With the report, you can see what time of day you’re using more energy and what parts of the house need more heat. With this information, you can make adjustments to the area or specific room so you’re not wasting energy there.
