How Smart Thermostats Help You Save
Customers using smart, energy-friendly thermostats can save at least 10% on heating and cooling costs as well as enjoy several other positive changes in their HVAC energy usage. Smart thermostats not only help users save money and energy, but they also benefit the environment.
Smart thermostats and smart systems help to reduce your carbon footprint. Because smart thermostats learn their user’s habits, they utilize an algorithm to run the HVAC system as little as possible while keeping your home comfortable. Reducing the usage of your heating system also reduces the offset gases produced by the system. Pairing a smart thermostat with a well-insulated home decreases your need for extensive use of your HVAC system.
Your smart thermostat often comes with an eco-setting or energy-saving mode so that when you are away from home or out of a room, it can switch to energy-saving settings. Reducing the time your air conditioning and heating units run when you are not home helps you save money while helping reduce your environmental impact.
3 Brands of Smart Thermostats
Nest, Ecobee4, and Honeywell are three types of smart thermostats that offer savings, programmable settings, and energy-saving benefits. When you are looking for a thermostat that matches your technological needs, consider one of these smart thermostats:
- Nest: The Nest smart thermostat work to save customers 10-12% on heating and 15% on cooling costs. The Nest thermostat learns your schedule and adjusts its programming so that you can set your schedule only once. It anticipates your needs based on the habits you keep with temperature adjustments and will make heating and cooling changes accordingly. You can also use your phone or tablet to make temperature adjustments remotely, so your home will be comfortable when you get home or can turn off the system if you forget.
- Ecobee4: This system is claimed to save customers 23% annually on heating and cooling costs. It includes room sensors that can be placed in key areas, to help balance the temperature in your home in the rooms you use while reducing the use of HVAC energy in rooms you are not using. The sensors can read the ambient temperature and sense the occupancy of a room, then use this information to switch between comfort mode and savings mode accordingly. When you are away, savings mode helps reduce your energy impact and save you money.
- Honeywell: The Honeywell thermostat has flexible programming, scheduled temperature adjustment, and preference options. You can differentiate between permanent and temporary setting changes, so if you have guests whose preferences differ from yours, it won’t disrupt your “normal” scheduled programming. You can program vacation mode settings and personalize comfort levels for individual rooms.
