Are your winter heating bills taking a toll on your finances? A simple thermostat adjustment could ease the strain. Is it possible to optimize the settings on your thermostat for both comfort and energy efficiency? We promise the two can coexist.
Heating and air conditioning professionals recommend a winter thermostat setting of 70 degrees when you are at home. At night, when you’re warm and cozy under the covers, you should lower it a few degrees more. Turning your thermostat setting down when you and your family are away from home also offers significant savings. If you’re the forgetful type, a smart programmable thermostat is an ideal way to manage both comfort and energy savings masterfully.
With a smart programmable thermostat, you won’t feel like you’re constantly adjusting thermostat settings or have to leave yourself sticky note reminders by the bed or door-side to remember to change settings. You can choose from smart thermostat models that you set yourself, based on a schedule, or smart ‘learning’ models that adjust to your lifestyle, automatically altering settings based on your comfort preference or the proximity of your smartphone to home. Affordable and convenient, they offer the ideal solution for meeting your energy savings goals, helping you ensure a happy family and a healthy budget.
Smart thermostats have been on the market several years, now offering more affordable pricing and stable technology with few models and software updates. Smart thermostat options exist starting at just $100, delivering a fast return on investment. Air conditioning companies report these convenient, money-saving devices provide energy savings of 20-30% on average – up to $180 per year.
Top smart thermostat models and their related apps work well with other home automation platforms and are easily integrated with Amazon Echo/Alexa, Apple Homekit, and Google Home technology. What’s more, many local utility companies are offering energy efficiency incentives toward smart thermostat upgrades, providing additional savings.
