According to ENERGY STAR, the average Birmingham homeowner spends almost $1,000 every year on heating and cooling. Smart thermostats can cut these costs by up to 25 percent. Besides saving money, they make life easier. Here’s how:
1. Heating and Cooling That’s Just Right for You
Also called learning thermostats and WiFi thermostats, these intelligent devices observe your behavior and provide an energy-efficient indoor environment custom-designed just for you. Smart devices sense your movements and respond accordingly; they turn the heat down when you leave and turn it up when you return. They monitor weather reports and adjust indoor conditions accordingly.
2. Remote Indoor Comfort Control
You can remotely tell your thermostat to have the house nice and cool by the time you return from vacation, or you can instruct it to delay turning on the AC if you’ll be late getting home from work.
3. Data Reports for More Energy Savings
Intelligent thermostats generate detailed monthly HVAC usage reports complete with Birmingham weather conditions and hourly, daily and monthly energy efficiency ratings. You can use these reports to tweak the system, increase efficiency and save even more. Some models will even tell you how to do it and save you the trouble of having to figure it out yourself.
Smart thermostat technology is a smart choice if you’re not getting the savings you’d like from your programmable device. Programmables are wonderful, but only if you know how to set them for optimal comfort and maximum energy savings. A learning thermostat will do all that for you. Just install it, and let it do its thing. In no time, you’ll feel like you have your own personal HVAC manager who makes sure you get what you want when you want it without having to ask.
