Greensboro, NC, has hot and humid summers with cold, wet winters. A professionally-installed smart thermostat can effectively keep you and your loved ones comfortable every season while also reducing the monthly energy bills.
Create Your Automation Schedule
When you install a smart thermostat, you can set your own custom automation schedule through programming. This lets you set your air conditioning or heat at a particular temperature during certain times of the day according to your schedule.
These automated schedules will save you money by only running the AC or heat when you need it. For example, you can set the thermostat to automatically raise the temperature when you leave the house for work in the morning, saving you money on your energy bills every month.
Customize Every Room in the House
Consider the rooms you frequently use. During the summer, you can divide them using an HVAC zoning system. The zoning system will ensure there is room-to-room temperature control, and you only cool the rooms you are using to save energy.
You can also program the smart thermostat to pre-cool a room just before use. For example, you can set your bedroom’s thermostat to cool during a hot summer before you go to sleep.
Take Advantage of Smart Thermostat Sensors
You can choose smart thermostats with sensors to detect any changes in the house. For instance, you can install sensors to switch the AC off whenever the window is open. This saves you time from having to manually adjust the temperature if you want a breeze and saves you money by only running the AC when needed.
Proper placement of the smart thermostat is vital to make sure you reap the energy-saving benefits. A smart thermostat placed near the window can perceive the temperature as cooler, so make sure to have an HVAC expert install your thermostat.
Installing a smart thermostat can help cut the monthly energy bills by a considerable amount, and it will save you money in the long term as well by helping prevent excess wear and tear on your HVAC system. Contact the HVAC technicians at Air Treatment to schedule the installation of a smart thermostat in your home.
