Summer in Denver means a whirlwind of weather changes. Setting records for highs and lows, all in the same week happens all too often.
But no matter how erratic our weather becomes, there is a way you can stay comfortable inside your home no matter what the temperature is outside. You can also become more efficient in the way you operate your heating and cooling system with a smart thermostat to help you through the year.
Adjust The Temperature Based On Your Needs
We’ve all heard the advice to move the thermostat a few degrees up or down when you’re away, depending on the season. But most advice will tell you to adjust it for when you’re home and when you’re asleep. What about if you head out on vacation?
With today’s smart thermostats, you can adjust the temperature based on your needs. If you’re away for a week, why leave your thermostat set to 78 degrees, when increasing to 80 or even 82 can save energy and money? You can even adjust it automatically to return to a comfortable temperature an hour or two before you’re scheduled to arrive home.
Adjustments From Anywhere
One of the greatest things about today’s technology is you can adjust it from anywhere. Just login and change your settings based on your needs. It makes adjusting the temperature from anywhere easy.
Learn More About Your Energy Usage
Before smart technology, your only indication of energy usage was your monthly utility bill. With a smart thermostat, you’ll have access to even more data. With some technology, you can download energy reports so that you can track your household energy consumption. This feature allows you to pinpoint times of the day when your family uses the most energy. You can make decisions on how best to heat and cool your home, based on the data received.
