A thermostat is a simple device: when the temperature in your home reaches
a certain point, it switches your heater or air conditioner on or off
in order to maintain that level of comfort. However, did you know that
this small box you probably never think twice about could actually save
you a bundle of money? It’s true: modern thermostats are loaded
with technologies that make them beneficial to nearly any home. Here are
three ways your thermostat could save you money.
Programmable thermostats have existed in various forms for decades. However,
today’s models are small, easy to use, and extremely affordable
with cheap units going for as little as around $25. These thermostats
allow you to program your weekly schedule so you don’t have to worry
about turning the temperature up or down before you leave for work in
the morning. Likewise, if you program it to turn back to an ideal temperature
just before you get home, you arrive to a comfortable home, and saved
money throughout the day.
Energy Efficiency Focus
Smart thermostats have taken things a step further. Today, some of the
top-of-the-line units are designed to monitor the amount of energy your
heater and air conditioner consume, and then change their operating patters
to maintain your home’s temperature while using less energy. These
systems often provide full energy readouts in an easy-to-use format, sometimes
sending them directly to your cell phone or tablet via wi-fi connectivity!
These top-of-the-line units also have the ability to
learn your temperature preferences and schedule, and a complex series of algorithms
allow it to make educated decisions about how to adjust itself at various
times of the day. As a result, you’ll almost never have to adjust
your thermostat ever again. On top of that, your thermostat will not only
adjust itself, but do so in a way that saves you energy, meaning you’ll
start seeing savings on your utility bills without having to lift a finger!
