Want to get more out of your heating and air conditioning system?
Your heating and air conditioning system is good, but it could be so much better if you take advantage of all your Wi-Fi thermostat has to offer. Take a look at five tips and tricks to help you get the most out of it:
#1: Use the Programming Feature
One of the biggest energy savers of your thermostat is the program feature. Manual temperature changes don’t allow you to utilize the energy saving advantages you’ll get by programming it, so you only use heating or cooling when you need it.
#2: Look at the Energy Reports
You can look at daily or monthly reports of the amount of energy you’re using for heating and cooling your home. These reports will help you monitor your use and allow you to adjust accordingly to save money on your utility bills.
#3: Check the Forecast
Some smart thermostats offer a look at your local weather forecast. This can help you plan for how warm or cool you want the inside of your home, and you can change your programming to meet those comfort needs.
#4: See How Lifestyle Programming Works
A smart thermostat can learn your lifestyle and habits and adjust to fit those preferences. Not only that, you can set it ahead of time for when you’re home and when you’re on vacation, so you only use energy when you need it.
#5: Take Advantage of Remote Access
One of the best things about smart thermostats is their Wi-Fi capabilities. This means you can adjust the temperature in your home when you’re across town, or across the country, through an app on your phone, tablet, or computer. Unexpected weather changes? Change the temperature in your house before you get home. Staying an extra day on your vacation? Change the pre-set programming easily and without worry.
