During the hot months of the summer, you want your home to stay cool without spending too much money. Fortunately, by installing a smart thermostat in your Cartersville, Georgia, home, you’ll save money while keeping your family comfortable. Here are a few ways you can use a smart thermostat to save money this summer:
Take Advantage of Smart Scheduling
One of the most effective ways to save money during the summer by using a smart thermostat is to take advantage of smart scheduling. Smart scheduling means that you’ll set the temperature in your home to raise and lower based around your lifestyle.
For instance, if you work outside the home, you can set the temperature to raise a few degrees during the day. As a result, you won’t spend money cooling an empty house. Many thermostats will also eventually learn your preferences. They can set and adjust schedules on their own.
Control Your Thermostat Remotely
Another way that smart thermostats can help you save money is by letting you control your system remotely. For example, imagine that you don’t have smart scheduling set up yet and you forget to turn down your thermostat before you leave the home. You can use remote access to adjust the temperature so that you won’t waste any energy. All you need is a smart device, the downloaded app and an internet connection.
Turn On Vacation Mode
If you take long summer vacations, you can save some money by using your smart thermostat’s vacation mode. Vacation mode will adjust your HVAC system so that it runs efficiently while you’re away. Best of all, you can remotely turn off vacation mode when you’re on the way home so your house will cool down for your arrival. As a result, you won’t have to sit in a stuffy house waiting for it to feel comfortable.
