3 Top Tips for Saving Energy with a Smart Thermostat
The U.S. Department of Energy recommends programmable and smart home thermostats as a way to manage heating and cooling costs. These advanced devices offer set-it-and-forget-it convenience for homeowners in Coachella Valley. Here are some of the most practical tips for getting the most from your smart thermostat this year.
Upgrade for Extra Features
Programmable thermostats are designed to allow you to set up a schedule for adjusting the temperature inside your home. This makes it easy to ensure cool temperatures when you return from work or school in the evening while allowing somewhat higher temperatures when your home is usually unoccupied. Upgrading to a smart home thermostat, however, will put the power to adjust indoor temperatures at your fingertips by using your smartphone or another connected device. Other available features include reminders for maintenance and air filter changes. Your HVAC contractor can point you in the right direction to ensure that you get a smart thermostat perfect for your needs.
Invest in Regular Maintenance
ENERGY STAR recommends regular maintenance as one of the best ways to ensure that your thermostat is working correctly. Your HVAC contractor can deliver the right maintenance services to make sure your smart home thermostat is working as intended and that it provides the proper temperature control for your Coachella Valley home.
Change with the Seasons
You can adjust your Wi-Fi-connected thermostat from wherever you happen to be. You can also set up programmed schedules that account for the differences in temperature in each of the seasons. By creating separate schedules for winter and summer, you can keep your home comfortable year-round.
