A smart thermostat is a Wi-Fi enabled device that automatically adjusts your home’s heating and cooling. You can “set it and forget it” for greater ease of use and convenience, while saving energy. Some models allow for remote monitoring and control from your mobile phone, tablet or laptop, or wherever you happen to be.
According to ENERGY STAR, heating and cooling your home can cost up to $900 a year. A smart thermostat can save energy and money by maintaining recommended temperatures.
There are three main types of thermostats:
You adjust the temperature setting up or down as desired by manually turning a dial or moving a lever.
This thermostat uses a built-in calendar and clock for temperature adjustment by day and time.
Does everything a programmable thermostat does. It is also Wi-Fi enabled and automatically adjusts temperature settings for optimal performance.
PLEASE NOTE: Manually operated thermostats contain mercury and need to be disposed of carefully and properly. Locate a safe and free collection site near you, and see if you qualify for an additional $5 rebate. Find out more at the Thermostat Recycling Corporation.
Now that you’ve got a smart thermostat, make the rest of your home smart. You’ll gain security, comfort and convenience, plus the energy efficiency will help you save.
