Will a Smart Thermostat Really Save Me Money?

April 15, 2022

The main appeal of smart thermostats is that they save you money on your energy bills. You may be wondering if they can really do that. As it turns out, they can save you money in a variety of ways.

Smart Temperature Regulation

The main way smart thermostats save money is by regulating the temperature in your home based on when you’re home and away. You can do this with a programmable thermostat as well. However, smart thermostats are more convenient and flexible than programmable thermostats.

Smart thermostats are better than programmable ones for people that come and go at different times of the day. This type of schedule is difficult to manage with a programmable thermostat. You don’t need to interact with the thermostat nearly as often when it’s a smart one.

Control It Remotely

You can control a smart thermostat from anywhere through its companion app. This makes it easy to adjust the temperature in your home when you’re at work or away on vacation. You can tweak the schedule the thermostat follows whenever you need to.

Obermanns in Jackson, MO, sells and installs smart thermostats. We have several Lennox models to choose from.

Check Your Energy Report

Smart thermostats track your temperature settings. They also track when you’re home and away. They use this information to generate energy reports. You can see when you’re using energy to regulate your home’s temperature and when. This information helps you make adjustments to your preferred temperatures, so you can save more money.

Use Remote Sensors

Some smart thermostats come bundled with remote sensors, or you can buy them separately. These allow you to monitor the temperature in other rooms of your home than where the thermostat is and make adjustments accordingly.
