Reduce Energy Costs in Austin with a Smart Thermostat

Installing a smart thermostat in your Austin home is one of the best ways to save money on heating and cooling bills.

A Wi-Fi thermostat is even smarter than a programmable thermostat, which can only modify settings based on the time of day. A smart thermostat learns from your plans and knows when you leave the house. This permits it to modify temperatures as needed.

Apps on your smartphone or tablet give you the power to monitor your home while you’re away and modify temperature settings from almost wherever. Plus, this smart home accessory displays your energy utilization in actual time.

A smart thermostat can be used with most HVAC systems. Some types are compatible with Amazon Alexa, allowing you to set the thermostat with voice commands. Others come with room sensors, which can minimize hot and cold spots.

How Smart Thermostats Save Energy

A smart thermostat takes the guessing out of regulating your home’s temperature. It’s a great choice if you have a programmable thermostat that’s not set up properly or unintentionally letting your HVAC system run all day.

It saves energy by keeping the temperature as low as possible for as much time as possible. This helps stop wasting money on heating and cooling when you’re not home. Then, it warms up or cools down your house based on when you return.

Minor temperature changes can add up to sizable savings over the course of a year—between 12 to 23 percent, according to two leading manufacturers. Your actual savings can fluctuate depending on your location, how large your rooms are, and your temperature and humidity settings.

Monitor Your Home While You’re Away

Because smart thermostats are Wi-Fi-enabled, you can control them with a smartphone, tablet or laptop while you’re away. You can also watch your system’s performance and get alerts if your furnace, air conditioner or heat pump isn’t operating correctly.

Not sure when you last took care of the air filter? Or when you should book periodic service? Your thermostat can let you know when it’s time.
