Contrary to how most households in the Ringgold, GA, area use HVAC systems, you don’t need to maintain your preferred temperature when you’re not at home. However, no one wants to return to an uncomfortable house after work or a vacation. Switching to a smart thermostat can address that and other issues. With features such as Wi-Fi and remote access, smart thermostats can lead to energy savings and lower utility expenses.
Easy Programming for Your HVAC System
A smart thermostat gives you more control over your HVAC system. Through the Wi-Fi-enabled device and its smartphone or computer app, you can program when your furnace or air conditioner should maintain certain temperatures. By programming the system, you don’t have to worry about remembering to adjust the temperature before you leave the house and you can be assured of comfortable temperatures when you return home.
Connected thermostats also let you adjust the temperature from anywhere that has an internet connection. The app updates periodically as well, ensuring that your connected thermostat uses the latest features and algorithms for optimal efficiency.
Money and Energy Savings
The features that connected thermostats provide naturally reduce energy use, which you will see on your utility bill every month. You can also see the difference via data that your smartphone or computer app collects. Modern thermostats provide energy reports, helping you to understand how you consume energy and where you can make improvements.
According to the Energy Star website, the average U.S. household spends more than $900 per year on heating and cooling costs. Using a certified connected thermostat could save a collective $740 million a year across the country. It would also produce an energy savings of 56 trillion BTUs.
