Automate your HVAC System. Save Money and Stay Comfortable

Automate your HVAC System. Save Money and Stay ConfortableIs your heating and cooling system running at high-speed when it should be enjoying a much-needed break? Americans spend a great deal of money heating and cooling unoccupied homes annually. Luckily, there’s an easy way to avoid such unnecessary expenses, reducing your electric bill and your carbon footprint with the help of thermostat automation.

What is Thermostat Automation?

Thermostat automation involves the addition of a programmable or smart thermostat, alone or as part of an expansive home automation system that could allow you control your lights, sprinklers, security system, and more from your phone or mobile device. The largest single user of energy in your home, controlling your HVAC system via automation is an essential part of reducing unnecessary energy use. Rather than running your heater or air conditioner 24/7 at the same temperature, automating your HVAC system as part of a smart home system or by itself helps save you money and live more comfortably. With a smart thermostat addition, you can program, monitor, and easily change how your system operates whether you’re home or away, helping you save energy and money while living more comfortably.
