Here in Wildwood, Florida, the air can sometimes feel muggy. If your air quality seems off, it might be time to look at your thermostat. With changing technology, smart thermostats have become both an energy and money saver. Here are three ways a smart thermostat can help you save money and improve comfort at home:
Have More Control Over the Temperature
Smart thermostats are designed to easily connect to smartphone apps. So even if you’re not at home, you can control the temperature. If you’re away all day, you can turn your system off or set it at a higher temperature. Then, before you head home, use the app to lower the temperature so you arrive to a comfortable setting.
According to U.S. Department of Energy, you could save up to 10 percent on your heating and cooling bill by turning your thermostat back 7-10 degrees for eight hours a day.
Automatically Learn Your Ideal Temperatures
A smart thermostat has the capability of learning your ideal temperatures along with high and low traffic times. So instead of continuously manually adjusting the thermostat up and down, the smart thermostat learns your routine and preferred temperatures, making the adjustments for you.
As you continue to use the device, your thermostat can also figure out your preferences. When you pair these functions, the thermostat helps make your home a lot more energy efficient. As a result, it saves you time and money.
Connect to Other Smart Devices
Smart thermostats can link with other smart devices at home. In Wildwood, where humidity can be high, you might have a smart dehumidifier. You can link these devices to create an even more energy-efficient, comfortable home.
Smart thermostats can help you save energy and money. They can also help you maintain a comfortable home year-round. If you’re ready to install a smart thermostat, call our professionals Sun Kool Air Conditioning, Inc. at 352-282-4763.
