Are you looking for a fresh new way to cut back on energy bills in your Houston, Texas, home? If you already excel at turning off the lights when you leave a room and using power strips for your appliances, consider upgrading to a powerful new energy saving device and installing a programmable thermostat. There are several ways you can save with the smart features of a new thermostat.
Upgrade to Smarter Settings
A programmable thermostat gives you minute control over your home temperature. You can input settings that vary by the time of day and day of the week. Set your air conditioning back during the day while you’re at school or work and overnight when you’re inactive to trim your energy expenses. Adjusting your thermostat settings by even a few degrees can have a measurable impact on your utility bill.
Make Adjustments from Afar
Choose a Wi-Fi enabled thermostat and you don’t have to be home to handle your home comfort. If you’re staying at the office longer than you planned, you can use your thermostat’s app to adjust the settings so you don’t have to cool the home too early. Don’t worry about remembering to make adjustments before you go on vacation. You can do it all on your smartphone, tablet, or computer anywhere you have an internet connection so you’re always on top of your energy expenses.
Learn from Your Thermostat
Many smart thermostats, like the Côr Wi-Fi thermostat, will learn from your home comfort settings to provide suggestions and adjustments that fine-tune your energy savings over time. Get energy reports that offer valuable insights into your heating and cooling habits. Features like smart setback will adapt to the outside climate your home needs to meet your programmed comfort levels with as little energy as possible, enhancing your efficiency with time.
