Upgrading HVAC equipment can feel like a hassle. Some may wonder if a more efficient system saves all that much money, especially when it comes to thermostats. Take a look at how installing a smart thermostat in your Madison, Mississippi, home can save you money.
Smart Thermostats Optimize Themselves
Through modern technology and device pairing, smart thermostats recognize patterns in your activity and thermostat use automatically. They can then adjust to become more efficient. As a result, they can you reduce your carbon footprint and save money.
For example, they can monitor how long it takes for your home to reach a desired temperature compared to the outside temperature. So if you like your home at 70 degrees when you return from work, the smart thermostat will:
- Learn that you get home at 5 P.M.
- Reference the exterior temperature.
- Turn the HVAC system on at the exact right time to reach 70 degrees at 5 P.M.
Integration With Your Smart Home
Let’s say you’re leaving for a vacation and in a hurry to leave. You forget to turn the thermostat down. As a result, you cool an empty house for a week. With a smart thermostat that you can connect to via an application on your smartphone, you can:
- Check on the home’s temperature.
- Correct your mistake.
- Go back to enjoying your vacation all while shaving a few bucks off your energy bill.
Add Zones to Compound Energy Savings
With any thermostat system, the more heating and cooling zones you have, the more control you have over your energy bill. You likely don’t need to keep your guest room and living room at the same comfortable temperature when you’re not using one. While you can have this same level of control with regular thermostats in zones, you don’t have the ease of use tied to smart thermostats.
Taking the plunge and investing in smart thermostats is an excellent decision. If you need help with integrating a smart thermostat into your existing HVAC system, call Modern Air at (601) 202-5968 today.
