Reduce Energy Costs in Ogden with a Smart Thermostat

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

A Wi-Fi thermostat is more clever than a programmable thermostat, which can only change settings based on a set schedule. A smart thermostat learns from your activities and knows when you leave the house. This permits it to adjust heating or cooling appropriately.

Apps give you the power to watch your home while you’re away and modify temperature settings from almost wherever. Plus, this smart home equipment displays your energy use in real time.

A smart thermostat can be used with most any HVAC system. Some models are compatible with Amazon Alexa, allowing you to control the thermostat without getting up. Others have room sensors, which can reduce temperature swings.

5 Signs You Need a Smart Thermostat

It might be time for a smart thermostat if your home doesn’t feel comfortable or you don’t remember to adjust temperature settings when you are away from home.

Here’s a few other indications 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 jam-packed—and constantly changes.
  4. You’re having difficulty evening out 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 great choice if you have a programmable thermostat that’s set accurately or inadvertently leave your HVAC system working all day.

It conserves energy by keeping the temperature as low as practical for as long 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 adjustments can add up to big savings over the duration of a year—between 12 to 23 percent, according to two top manufacturers. Your actual savings can vary based on the part of the country where you are located, how large your rooms are, and your temperature and humidity preferences.

Monitor Your Home While You’re Away

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

Not sure when you last changed your air filter? Or when you have to schedule periodic service? Your thermostat can let you know when it’s time.
