Reduce Energy Costs in Edmonton with a Smart Thermostat

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

A Wi-Fi thermostat is more clever than a programmable thermostat, which can only modify settings based on what time it is. A smart thermostat picks up on your activities and knows when you are away from home. This allows it to change comfort accordingly.

Apps give you the power to monitor your home remotely and modify temperature settings from almost wherever. Plus, this smart home device shows your energy consumption in actual time.

A smart thermostat can be paired with most any HVAC system. Some types are compatible with Amazon Alexa, allowing you to adjust the thermostat without getting up. Others come with room sensors, which can minimize temperature swings.

5 Signs You Need a Smart Thermostat

You should probably get 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 signs a smart thermostat is right for your home:

  1. Your energy bills keep going up.
  2. You’re continuously 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 loss.

How Smart Thermostats Save Energy

A smart thermostat takes the estimating out of handling your home’s temperature. It’s a good choice if you have a programmable thermostat that’s set properly or unintentionally leave your HVAC system on all day.

It saves energy by keeping the temperature as low as possible for the greatest amount of time as possible. This helps you avoid wasting money on heating and cooling when you’re not home. Then, it warms up or cools down your house based on your arrival.

Small temperature adjustments can add up to big savings over the length of a year—between 12 to 23 percent, according to two top manufacturers. Your actual savings can vary based on where you live, 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 away. You can also watch your system’s performance and get messages if your furnace, air conditioner or heat pump isn’t working appropriately.

Can’t remember when you last changed your air filter? Or when you should schedule routine tune-ups? Your thermostat can let you know when it’s time.
