4 Reasons to Invest in a Smart Thermostat

Smart thermostats are becoming commonplace in many Midwestern households. Since we live with four distinct seasons, many homeowners spend quite a bit of time (and money) keeping their home at a comfortable temperature. 

Smart thermostats make managing your home’s heating and cooling system a breeze. Plus, their programmable cycle settings can save you up to 10 percent on your monthly energy bill

They’re not just a luxury option—smart thermostats are now more affordable than ever. Many are available for less than $80. Certain models are also eligible for tax rebates in some areas. With a little bit of research, you can find a model that fits your home needs and budgets.

Here are four ways a smart thermostat can elevate your home comfort experience: 

Easy Mobile Interface

You can adjust the temperature, view energy updates, and more—all from your mobile device. That means you have access from virtually anywhere in the world. That means when you are halfway to Disney World and realize you forgot to turn off your heat, it’s a quick fix. Or, if the school bus drops off your son early, you can quickly adjust your home temperature. 

Maintenance and Repair Notifications

Your car has a check engine light, so why doesn’t your air conditioner? Many smart thermostats let you know when it’s time to change your air filter—sending an immediate notification to your phone. Sensors also detect when you need a repair and let you know when it’s time for a maintenance visit. 

Monitor Your Energy Usage

Is someone in your house stealthily adjusting the thermostat? Your smart thermostat provides accurate energy use data to help you pinpoint wasteful activity. You’ll receive the right information to moderate consumption. 

Programmable Cycles

Since we’re all human, sometimes we forget to turn down our thermostats at night or when we’re away. Smart thermostats can take over this responsibility, with automatic cycles seven days a week. By using a feedback algorithm, it can also create cycles tailored to fit your home habits.  

Save Money Today

When used properly, a programmable thermostat can save you about $180 every year in energy costs. Another tip from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is to improve the insulation in your Springfield home. Doing so can shave another 10 percent off your annual energy bills.
