As the weather warms up, people are naturally going to turn to their thermostats down, cranking up the cool air in order to get a break from the heat. However, this can wreak havoc on your energy bills… unless you have a smart thermostat for your home.
Is a Smart Thermostat Right for Your Home?
A smart thermostat, like other “smart” home devices, utilizes modern technology in order to make your life easier and to save both money and energy. They allow access from phones and other devices so that you can adjust the settings from anywhere, saving you money as you make adjustments based on changes to the weather.
Some of these thermostats will adjust automatically depending on the temperature in order to keep things within a reasonable temperature, though not so high, or low, as some people might set. This saves you the effort of having to adjust with the shift in temperature, but also saves a ton of money by keeping things a few degrees cooler, in this case, than you might opt for on your own.
Another benefit is “off-peak pricing.” If you have a smart thermostat and use it outside of the designated “peak hours,” then you’ll also be able to save a lot on energy. Companies will designate the times of day when most people are turning down the temperature inside because it’s hotter outside, and if you don’t use your thermostat (or have it warmer than you might otherwise), then you’ll see big savings.
If you have an old thermostat, one that is simply digital, or if you forget to change the temperature before you go out, then this type of tech could really work for you.
