Everything gets easier when you’re in a comfortable temperature, right? There may be some tension in your relationship over the proper temperature or how you can be more energy efficient. Here are some tips on why a smart thermostat may be the answer.
Convenience is Guaranteed
With a regular thermostat, you need to be aware at all times of what the temperature is outside and be constantly adjusting to make sure both you and your home are comfortable.
With a smart thermostat, you can take that guesswork away. The unit can be pre-programmed, so if you like it cold at night, it will drop a few degrees right before bed and come back to normal when you wake up.
The thermostat can also learn your habits and create schedules based on your timetable. For example, if you are gone between the hours of 9 and 5 every day, the thermostat, through its various sensors, will not detect motion and will adjust the temperature to conserve energy while you’re gone.
You can also control the smart thermostat with your phone when you have internet access, so if you wake up cold during the night, no need to get up! Just reach over and grab your phone to adjust.
Celebrate having no more fights over forgetting to adjust the thermostat!
Dealing with Efficiency
A smart thermostat is the key to energy efficiency and energy savings. Since you can pre-program it to only heat or cool when you need it, it reduces wasted energy. When you reduce energy consumption, your monthly costs go down. That’s extra money for date night!
Similarly, the unit will get smarter the more it gets used. Over time, it will learn how to accurately predict what adjustments are necessary and save you money on energy bills. Similarly, it can track your energy use, so you know exactly how the unit is performing.
