If you're enlisting the help of energy services, you're likely seeking out ways of cutting down on your consumption. There are many ways you can achieve this, but one of the most notable is a thermostat upgrade. It might not seem like a big deal since it's only one component, but the thermostat is essentially the "brain" of your HVAC system. It's also a common source of wasted energy, as the older models are very limited in what they can do. All too often you'd find yourself choosing between being uncomfortable while at home and wasting a great deal of energy when you're away. Programmable thermostats are the solution to this quandary.
No one likes the idea of paying to heat or cool an empty house. If you have an older thermostat, there's not much you can do about it if you've already left home for the day. Smart thermostats, on the other hand, let you control the temperature in your house from your pocket! You can use your smartphone or tablet to make adjustments on the go, and even the smallest change can make a world of difference once the bills come back around. If you're hesitant to make the investment in a thermostat upgrade, keep in mind that the amount of savings you stand to gain will easily offset the price tag before long.
Your new thermostat may even show you your energy usage in real time, which allows you to make adjustments to the programming when necessary to cut back on your expenses. Smart thermostats can even tell you how long it will take for your house to reach the desired temperature after making changes, so you can better understand the speed at which your home will cool down. You can time it, so the house is pleasantly cool by the time you get home from work!
