Heating and air conditioning doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg.
Are you struggling with the bills from your heating and air conditioning? You’re not alone. Heating your home in the winter can be a pain in the wallet. The good news is that you can do something about it with a simple upgrade to a smart thermostat. Take a look at three ways a Wi-Fi connection to your HVAC system can lower your energy bills this winter:
#1: Smart Beats Programmable
Old programmable thermostats used to be cutting-edge when it comes to creating an energy efficient heating and cooling system. But as older thermostats become less and less efficient, smart thermostats are becoming more efficient and effective, as well as user-friendly. The programming options on new smart thermostats are increasingly flexible, giving you more control over the comfort of your home.
#2: But Wait, There’s Wi-Fi!
One of the best things about smart thermostats is their Wi-Fi capabilities. Not only does it allow the system to “learn” your preferences and adjust accordingly, but you can make changes to programming remotely via an app on your phone, tablet, or computer. You can also track your energy use so you can make changes based on what you can see in real-time regarding your efficiency.
#3: Monitor Your Environment
Another bonus to having a Wi-Fi thermostat is the ability to monitor the environment, both inside and outside your home. If the weather is unexpectedly cold, you can see that and adjust your indoor temperature accordingly. You can also see what’s happening to the indoor temperature when you’re not home and make adjustments.
