If you’re like many homeowners, you’re still using the same thermostat that was installed when your home was built. While it’s definitely a trusty, durable household device, technology has advanced in the last several years. Even if you have moved beyond the manual control thermostat to the programmable model, you’re not necessarily maximizing your HVAC system’s efficiency. Today’s smart thermostats can dramatically improve your ability to monitor your energy consumption and regulate temperature.
So, what exactly are the benefits of a smart, wi-fi-enabled thermostat? These advanced devices enable you to control your home’s climate from anywhere using a mobile device. And, they monitor your habits and energy consumption in real-time to enable you to keep track of your spending on cooling and heating costs.
Cost-Savings and Convenience
Smart thermostats do cost somewhat more than standard, programmable models. However, there is often a quick return on investment by being able to better manage your energy consumption. Those who are forgetful about adjusting a programmable thermostat will likely find considerable savings, especially during the hot months of summer when energy consumption for air conditioning is high.
Yet, long-term cost-savings isn’t the only benefit. In fact, the biggest perk is probably convenience. Imagine not having to manually adjust your thermostat when you leave for an extended time or go on vacation. Consider the additional insight of knowing exactly how much energy you’re consuming without having to wait for your monthly bill. With a smart thermostat, this information is available at your fingertips from any mobile device. You can adjust your heating and cooling with better insights to ensure you stay on budget every month.
