Reduce Energy Costs in Albany with a Smart Thermostat

Using a smart thermostat in your Albany home is a clever way to save money on energy expenses.

A Wi-Fi thermostat is more clever than a programmable thermostat, which can only change settings based on what time it is. A smart thermostat picks up on your behavior and knows when you are away from home. This enables it to change heating or cooling appropriately.

Apps give you the capability to keep an eye on your home from a distance and fine-tune temperature settings from almost wherever. Plus, this smart home device displays your energy use live.

A smart thermostat can be used with most any HVAC system. Some types are compatible with Amazon Alexa, allowing you to adjust the thermostat with your voice. Others have room sensors, which can lessen temperature swings.

5 Signs You Need a Smart Thermostat

You should probably get a smart thermostat if your home doesn’t feel comfortable or you forget to adjust temperature settings when you take off.

Here’s a few other signs a smart thermostat is right for your home:

  1. Your energy bills keep getting more expensive.
  2. You’re constantly forgetting to change settings on the thermostat.
  3. Your agenda is busy—and frequently changes.
  4. You’re having trouble controlling your home’s temperature.
  5. You want to minimize energy spending.

How Smart Thermostats Save Energy

A smart thermostat takes the guesswork out of handling your home’s temperature. It’s a good choice if you have a programmable thermostat that’s not set up accurately or unintentionally leave your HVAC system running all day.

It conserves energy by keeping the temperature as low as feasible for the greatest amount of time as possible. This helps stop wasting money on heating and cooling when you’re away. Then, it warms up or cools down your house based on when you get back.

Minor temperature changes can add up to big savings over the length of a year—between 12 to 23 percent, according to two leading manufacturers. Your actual savings can vary based on the part of the country where you are located, the size of rooms in your house, and your temperature and humidity preferences.

Monitor Your Home While You’re Away

Since smart thermostats are Wi-Fi-enabled, you can control them with a smartphone, tablet or laptop while you’re not at home. You can also watch your system’s performance and get notifications if your furnace, air conditioner or heat pump isn’t working appropriately.

Can’t remember when you last changed your air filter? Or when you need to book periodic tune-ups? Your thermostat can let you know when it’s time.
