The Benefits of Smart Thermostats
Learn how smart thermostats can make your home more efficient, reduce your energy bill, and simplify your control experience.
HOW CAN SMART THERMOSTATS REDUCE MY ENERGY BILL?
Integrating thermostats into your smart home allows for greater control over your home's HVAC system, giving you the opportunity to reduce your energy costs and increase your home's energy efficiency. Your system can be programmed to perform certain ways based on the time of day, time of year, etc. For example, your thermostats can be put on a schedule to raise the temperature in the home during the summer when you leave for work in the morning and lower to a comfortable temperature by the time you get home at the end of the day. During the winter, lower the heat during the day when the sun is shining and warming the home naturally and crank the thermostat's warmth when you go to bed at night. Why waste money heating and cooling your home when no one is home?
Smart thermostats are one of the most effective, yet cost-sensitive ways to reduce your energy bill. Aside from using a potentially dangerous space heater or throwing on several layers, smart thermostats are the best way to impact your energy bills without spending a lot of money. By programming a schedule for your heating and cooling system, your home's temperature is more intuitive and customized to your daily routine and preferences.
CHANGE IN PLANS? NO PROBLEM!
Have an unexpected gathering at your home or decide to make a last minute trip to the vacation home for the weekend? With an integrated smart thermostat system, there is no need to worry! You can control your home's thermostats remotely and override programmed schedules right from your smart phone. This allows you to set the desired temperature remotely and walk into a comfortable temperature throughout your home.
PRO TIP: UNEVEN TEMPERATURE PARADIGM
Coloradans continually face the frustration of uneven heating and cooling throughout their homes. With basements in most of our spaces and a powerful sun at high elevation, this becomes even more of an issue. The heat we pump into our homes during the winter typically doesn't reach all areas of our home the way we'd hope - furnaces in the basement will keep that space nice and toasty while the third floor could be left chilly. During the summer months, we spend more and more money trying to cool our stifling upper levels while the basement is already freezing.
With home automation and smart thermostats, you now have a simple solution! Smart thermostats can be programmed to cycle the air throughout the home, transferring the excess warm air from the upper levels of your space into the basement to achieve a comfortable, even temperature throughout the residence any time of year.
