Keeping your Birmingham, Alabama, home a comfortable temperature while saving energy is a top priority. Your heating and cooling system accounts for a large portion of your energy bills and can be difficult to manage when you spend much of your day in and out of the house. The good news is that you can easily tackle both problems by installing a smart thermostat in your home. Check out why a smart thermostat is perfect for those with an on-the-go lifestyle.
With a smart thermostat, the temperature in your house can be adjusted according to settings that you program to take effect at certain times of the day and on certain days. You can program a smart thermostat with different temperatures for when you’re asleep, awake, at work, or on vacation, for example. Programming a regular heating and cooling schedule for the week on your smart thermostat can save a lot off energy bills.
If your schedule is not consistent or if you plan to be home earlier than expected, you can still make sure your home will be comfortable when you arrive because your smart thermostat can be adjusted from any smart device. This is also useful if you forget to change the temperature when you leave home.
Monitoring and Notification
The same app that allows you to adjust the temperature can also let you know what’s going on in your home. You can set up notifications to alert you if the temperature in your house changes drastically and suddenly. You’ll also be alerted when there’s a power outage and your thermostat suddenly goes offline. Some models even notify you when the filter is dirty or if there are other maintenance issues.
If a busy lifestyle prevents you from managing your home’s heating and cooling as closely as you would like, consider buying one or more smart thermostats.
