How a Smart Thermostat Can Save You Money


Having a new and efficient HVAC system is extremely important in order to maintain comfortable temperatures and low monthly bills. A major component of an HVAC system is the thermostat as this controls the entire system. While normal thermostats get the job done, smart thermostats offer many benefits - one of which is saving you a lot of money.

Zoning Benefits
By adding a smart thermostat to your home, you will have the ability to create zoned heating and cooling when and where you need it. You can choose to heat or cool certain rooms or levels of the house during different times of the day. Adjustments can be made to specific zones while other zones remain warmer or cooler. This will allow you to heat or cool the areas of the home you use most, while saving you money on rooms you do not need heated or cooled.

Smarter Than Programmable Units
Programmable thermostats do allow you to set zones for heating and cooling during different times of the day. However, many people do not get around to programming these thermostats - 89 percent of homeowners to be exact! With a smart thermostat, it will learn habits and patterns to more efficiently cool your home so you don't have to, as well as having all of the programmable capabilities.

Remote Control
While programmable thermostats are great, smart thermostats make controlling your HVAC system even easier and more customizable. Many of these thermostats can connect to your phone and allow you to adjust zones and temperatures away from home. This means you can lower or raise the temperature when you're not home and do the opposite when you're on your way back to the house.

Installing a smart thermostat in your home will give you more control of your HVAC system while also saving you money with each and every energy bill.
