It’s no secret that along with automated assistants and LED lighting, smart thermostats are becoming an increasingly more popular staple of the home and modern living. Smart thermostats aren’t just sought-after because they look cool, they also work to help you have the perfect temperature in your home while saving money and energy. There are several benefits to installing a smart thermostat and being able to control your home temperature remotely: take a look at a few of our favourites.
One of the main benefits of being able to control your thermostat remotely, and the biggest reason why homeowners are switching to smart thermostats is the money saved on utility bills. When you choose to control your thermostat remotely, you can turn down the air conditioning or heating when you’re out of the home and turn it back up before you come back. This way, you’re enjoying the comfort of your HVAC system without having to worry about wasting money when you’re out of the house.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
On average, most households reduce their heating and cooling energy use by about 30% when they make the switch to a smart thermostat with which they can control their home’s temperature remotely. If you ever feel like you need air conditioning but feel bad for overusing energy in the summer, turning down your air conditioner while you’re out of the house is a great way to keep your home cool during the summer without increasing your carbon footprint.
Stay Comfortable Day And Night
Smart thermostats are great to control your home’s temperature while out of the house, but the same applies to when you’re inside the house as well. A great use for controlling your thermostat from your phone is programming your smart thermostat to lower and raise the temperature of your home according to the time of day. This way, you’re getting the most comfortable sleeping and waking hours when you’re at home.
