Is it worth trying to increase energy efficiency in the summertime?
Increasing your energy efficiency can often seem like a lost cause. Everyone has great intentions, but it can sometimes feel like energy efficiency, without giving up comfort, is an impossibility. Until now. Here are three ways a smart thermostat can increase your summer energy efficiency without making you sweat:
#1: Advanced Programmability
A smart thermostat is not just a way to more accurately gauge the temperature inside your home. It’s state of the art technology allows you to program your heating and cooling to fit every aspect of your life and lifestyle, and the desired comfort level of you and your family. Their user-friendly interface and intuitive settings make it easy for anyone to get the most out of their HVAC system with easy programming, so you only cool your house when you need to.
#2: Remote Access
Plans changing? Smart thermostat technology and Wi-Fi access let you change and adjust your heat and cooling settings, update your programming, and manage the temperature of your home from anywhere via an app on your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
#3: See Your Energy Use
Smart thermostats can show you how much energy you're using during the hot summer months so that you can adjust your programming and temperature settings accordingly. Instead of the surprise you feel when you open your utility bills, you'll know ahead of time just how efficient your air conditioning is, and how you can improve it if you choose to do so.
Staying cool in the summer is a priority, but so is saving money on your energy bills. For all the information you need on how smart thermostats can increase your energy efficiency this summer, contact our team of pros at H.H. Hovey Heating and Cooling.
