Reduce Energy Costs in Edmonton with a Smart Thermostat

Installing a smart thermostat in your Edmonton home is a brilliant way to save money on energy bills.

A Wi-Fi thermostat is more clever than a programmable thermostat, which can only adjust settings based on the time of day. A smart thermostat picks up on your behavior and knows when you are away from home. This enables it to modify temperatures as needed.

Apps give you the ability to watch your home while you’re away and modify temperature settings from almost wherever. Plus, this smart home device provides your energy utilization in real time.

A smart thermostat can be paired with most any HVAC system. Some kinds are compatible with Amazon Alexa, allowing you to control the thermostat with voice commands. Others come with room sensors, which can lessen hot and cold spots.

5 Signs You Need a Smart Thermostat

It might be time for a smart thermostat if your home doesn’t feel comfortable or you neglect to modify temperature settings when you leave.

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

  1. Your energy bills keep going up.
  2. You’re regularly forgetting to change settings on the thermostat.
  3. Your calendar is jam-packed—and frequently changes.
  4. You’re having difficulty controlling your home’s temperature.
  5. You want to limit energy waste.

How Smart Thermostats Save Energy

A smart thermostat takes the guessing out of managing your home’s temperature. It’s a good choice if you have a programmable thermostat that’s set correctly or accidentally leave your HVAC system running all day.

It conserves energy by keeping the temperature as low as feasible for as much 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 your arrival.

Minor temperature adjustments can add up to large savings over the length of a year—between 12 to 23 percent, according to two top manufacturers. Your actual savings can be different depending on your location, the size of rooms in your house, and your temperature and humidity needs.

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 away. You can also watch your system’s performance and get messages if your furnace, air conditioner or heat pump isn’t running properly.

Unsure when you last changed your air filter? Or when you should book regular tune-ups? Your thermostat can remind you when it’s time.
