Can I Save Money When I Invest in a Smart Thermostat?

August 12, 2021

Smart thermostats let you enjoy a more comfortable indoor environment without wasting energy and your money. Connected to the internet, they also make it easy and convenient to track your energy use. Read on to learn how a smart thermostat saves energy, money and time.

How Smart Thermostats Work

Old-fashioned thermostats work by turning your HVAC systems on whenever the temperature falls or rises beyond a specific setpoint. Their job is to maintain that temperature whether you’re home or not. In contrast, a smart thermostat automatically adjusts household temperatures to match your needs. It keeps you comfortable at home, then switches to an energy-saving mode when you’re away or sleeping. Smart thermostats come with a variety of features.

  • Control temperature settings remotely through your smartphone, tablet or computer.
  • Set temperature settings in advance according to your weekday and weekend schedules.
  • Monitor HVAC usage online and learn tips on how to lower your energy bills.

Programming Payoffs

Even a small reduction in HVAC energy use saves you money. In the heat of summer, programming your AC system to raise the temperature 10 degrees while you’re away at work can cut your cooling costs by 10 percent. You can use the same strategy during the winter to save on heating expenses. Simply by using a smart thermostat’s programming options, you can save more than $180 every year on your energy bills.

Adding Up the Savings

HVAC systems equipped with a smart thermostat and controls put you in charge of your heating and cooling expenses. Online energy reports let you monitor usage and make money-saving adjustments.
