3 Ways a Smart Thermostat Can Save You Energy

With the Show Low, AZ summer right around the corner, you may soon see your monthly energy costs start to rise. You’ll probably be turning the air conditioning up quite often to stay comfortable, and cooling systems can use up quite a bit of electricity over time. However, if you install a smart thermostat now, you could keep your monthly bills at a reasonable level all summer long.

1. No More Unnecessary Cooling

Every time you forget to turn the AC off when you head to work or go to sleep, it results in several hours of wasted electricity. Additionally, every time you leave the AC running even after the house is comfortable, that’s wasted energy as well. With a smart thermostat, these occurrences will no longer happen. You can program your schedule into the thermostat, and it will automatically turn off your HVAC system during the hours that you don’t need it. Over several months, this can significantly impact your electricity bills.

2. Controlling the Climate Remotely

Most smart thermostats feature an app that you can use on your phone to control your home’s climate. So, if you’re out running errands, going for a hike, or even on vacation, you can easily check in to see the status of your smart thermostat. If you realize that the AC is running despite no one being home, you can remotely turn it off and prevent further wasted energy.

3. Tracking Your Energy Usage

You may be regularly wasting energy without realizing it. If that’s the case, then a smart thermostat will be able to help you improve your habits. It will track your energy consumption habits and give you a breakdown of where your money is going. Once you’re presented with a clear picture of your energy usage, it will be much easier to start making positive changes in your habits.
