Save Energy & Money Without Sacrificing Comfort

While there are many ways to save on your energy bills, the lion’s share of your energy usage comes from your home comfort system. And while you’re diligent about turning off any lights you’re not using, you’re not likely to turn off your air conditioning during the hot North Carolina summer.

However, there are ways to minimize your cooling costs, such as making sure to set your thermostat at an energy-saving temperature and keeping up with your seasonal HVAC maintenance. You can also cut your cooling costs by investing in a smart thermostat. Check out all the ways a smart thermostat will make sure you are getting the most out of your system for the lowest cost! 

4 Reasons A Smart Thermostat Is A Smart Investment

Say Goodbye to Human Error

Most families have complex schedules, with everyone coming and going at different times. When you install a smart thermostat, you can teach it your schedule during setup. Because the smart thermostat knows your regular schedule and unique preferences, you won’t have to worry about forgetting to reset the temperature as part of your daily routine. Your thermostat will manage your comfort system while you focus on your busy schedule. This way, you won’t have to compromise time or money when it comes to your energy bill, not to mention it’s one less thing to remember! 

Remote Wi-Fi Access

While your smart thermostat learns your schedule and cools and heats your home accordingly, you’ll still be able to access your unit at any time to make unscheduled changes. Smart thermostats connect to your home wi-fi network and interface with your mobile device via an app, allowing you to control your temperature settings from anywhere. For example, if you are taking a much-needed summer vacation, you can put your AC in vacation mode for the duration of the trip and return it to normal when you’re driving home so you aren’t greeted with a hot, stuffy house! 

Additional Features

Between chauffeuring the kids around to making sure you walked the dog, some important details may slip through the cracks. Smart thermostats provide extra features that can prevent this. These features include:

  • Maintenance reminders to help you avoid unnecessary repairs.
  • Diagnostic alerts when repairs are needed.
  • Energy-monitoring that allows you to track your usage in real time. 
  • Reminders to let you know when it’s time to change the air filters.
  • And much more! 

Saves Energy & Money 

Because a smart thermostat is designed to maximize energy efficiency, you can achieve maximum efficiency by simply allowing your thermostat to manage your home comfort system on its own. You can rest easy knowing your home will be comfortable and your system will be monitored for inefficiencies and maintenance problems. Plus, you will be saving loads of energy and money!
