Smart Thermostats

How Smart Thermostats Help You Save on Your Electric Bill

If you’re looking for a way to save energy in your home, a smart thermostat is one of the most popular ways to do it. Smart thermostats are not your average, ordinary thermostat—while they do measure the temperature and turn your heating and cooling system on or off, a smart thermostat does so much more beyond that. Today’s smart thermostats have the ability to connect with other appliances or devices in your home, give you data on how much energy you’re using, be controlled from anywhere in the world, and even make operating decisions that increase efficiency without sacrificing comfort.

While you might think your thermostat is perfectly fine as it is, the truth is you could be missing out on the biggest benefit these systems can offer you: energy efficiency! These devices have shown to pay for themselves in energy savings quickly, sometimes in as little as just a few months’ time!

Energy Readouts

Perhaps the largest benefit of a smart thermostat is that it keeps track of exactly how much energy you use in heating and cooling your home, and then shows you this data in easy-to-read charts and graphics that allow you to spot patterns and see areas where you can improve. Not only do these thermostats usually store all this data in the cloud so you can access it from anywhere, but some even analyze this data on their own to make decisions about how to heat and cool your home.

When you combine both of these functions, you have two different ways in which these thermostats could help you save a lot of cash.

No More Adjustments

One of the biggest ways people waste money with their heating and cooling system that most people don’t realize is the constant adjusting of the thermostat. Lowering the temperature isn’t going to make your home cool off any faster, but that hasn’t stopped people from cranking their system to try and find the relief they need. A smart thermostat ensures you don’t have to worry about this. With modern technology and algorithms that take into account everything from indoor temperature to your climate preferences to even the weather outside, these systems will adjust themselves to make sure that your home is always cool, comfortable, and welcoming to you and your family.

In fact, the Nest smart thermostat, one of the leaders in the industry, is so advanced it actually learns your climate preferences and then adjusts itself based on these and other external factors. Most customers say that within as little as a week or so, they never have to touch their thermostat again and their home is always as comfortable as they would like.

Less Strain on Your Electrical Grid

Heating and cooling consumes a lot of energy, and a smart thermostat helps with that. But did you know that consuming less energy also means less strain on your electrical equipment? It’s true! A smart thermostat pulling less current through your electrical system means less wear on your breakers, less wear on your wires, and plenty of other benefits as well. Likewise, a system that runs less also stays in better condition, and that means it won’t have to pull extra current and voltage through your electrical grid in order to operate.
