Upgrading Your Thermostat May Help with Energy Efficiency and Savings. Learn How

Upgrading Your Thermostat May Help with Energy Efficiency and Savings. Learn HowAre you looking for ways to lower your electric bill this winter? Save money and improve the performance of your heating and air conditioning system with a new home thermostat. Upgrading the thermostat on your home heating unit to a new programmable smart thermostat model is an easy and inexpensive way to improve your system’s efficiency and save on your monthly heating costs.

How Do Smart Thermostats Help You Save?

Smart thermostat technology offers savings of 10-15 % on average. That’s no small amount since heating and air conditioning accounts for around 50% of the average homeowner’s utility bill. Smart thermostats offer these savings by:

  • Adjust thermostat settings when your home is unoccupied
    Smart thermostats monitor when you are away from home, automatically adjusting settings for savings when you are away and ensuring a comfortable environment when you return.
  • Offering season-specific settings
    Programming your HVAC system to a cooler setting in the winter (and a warmer setting in the summer) delivers savings. You could save up to 3% on heating and cooling costs for every degree that you adjust the setting.
  • Monitoring the performance of your HVAC system
    Many smart thermostat models monitor your heater’s usage patterns and performance in real-time, offering suggestions that could improve savings and lengthen system life.

Save On Installation with Utility Rebates and Incentives

With the help of your local utility company, you could upgrade to a smart thermostat at little or no cost to you. Most utility companies across the US offer incentives of $50-100 for a new Energy Star smart thermostat. The small amount you’ll pay out of pocket for purchase and installation could be quickly recouped in as little as a couple of months.
