Reduce Energy Costs in Austin with a Smart Thermostat

Adding a smart thermostat to your Austin home is one of the most intelligent ways to save money on utility bills.

A Wi-Fi thermostat is more clever than a programmable thermostat, which can only change settings based on the time of day. A smart thermostat figures out your behavior and knows when you take off. This enables it to modify heating or cooling appropriately.

Apps give you the power to keep an eye on your home from a distance and adjust temperature settings from almost anyplace. Plus, this smart home accessory displays your energy use live.

A smart thermostat can be paired with most any HVAC system. Some types are compatible with Amazon Alexa, allowing you to set the thermostat with your voice. Others come with room sensors, which can reduce hot and cold spots.

5 Signs You Need a Smart Thermostat

You should probably get a smart thermostat if your home doesn’t feel comfortable or you don’t remember to adjust temperature settings when you are away from home.

Here’s a few other signs a smart thermostat is right for your home:

  1. Your energy bills keep increasing.
  2. You’re continuously forgetting to adjust the thermostat.
  3. Your schedule is jam-packed—and constantly changes.
  4. You’re having problems controlling your home’s temperature.
  5. You want to reduce energy spending.

How Smart Thermostats Save Energy

A smart thermostat takes the guessing out of controlling your home’s temperature. It’s a good choice if you have a programmable thermostat that’s configured properly or accidentally leave your HVAC system running all day.

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

Minor temperature modifications can add up to large savings over the length of a year—between 12 to 23 percent, according to two top manufacturers. Your actual savings can depend on where you live, the size of rooms in your house, and your temperature and humidity needs.

Monitor Your Home While You’re Away

Since smart thermostats are Wi-Fi-enabled, you can set them with a smartphone, tablet or laptop while you’re not at home. You can also keep an eye on your system’s performance and get messages if your furnace, air conditioner or heat pump isn’t running correctly.

Unsure when you last changed your air filter? Or when you should schedule periodic tune-ups? Your thermostat can prompt you when it’s time.
