This winter has been colder than most, with more snow and ice. This has lead to us having an increased energy bill. One of the biggest causes of a significant increase in our energy costs may be due to an inefficient thermostat. One of the best ways to save energy is to upgrade your thermostat. I know we would all like to save money on energy costs. During the hot summers and cold winters, we may change our thermostat settings several times a day.
Do you change your thermostat setting when you leave the house, or go to bed? Do you change it based on the weather outside? Do you make several trips to the thermostat to adjust the temperature? How would you like to have a best Wifi Thermostat with remote control? A thermostat like the Nest Learning Thermostat that has a built in WiFi and can learn your heating/cooling habits in about a week, sounds great doesn’t it?
A thermostat that you can adjust from anywhere in your home or even if you are away by using your laptop, tablet smart phone or other Wi-Fi capable device can really increase your comfort by insuring your heat or air-conditioning is on before you get home so that you do not walk into a cold or to warm home. Not only can you adjust the thermostat settings, you can check your energy usage and learn to use it more smartly.
It’s important for me to save money on energy and to ensure the comfort of my family; this type thermostat makes perfect sense to me. Not only will it tell me the temperature setting that is most energy efficient, it knows when I leave and return home and can adjust the temperature accordingly. Once it learns my habits, it can adjust temperature accordingly. Sounds almost too good to be true, but if I am using the thermostat correctly, I can see it paying for itself on saving energy costs in a very short time.
The smarter we are about your energy usage, the better we will be able to use it more efficiently and save money, as energy costs continue to rise and we need to do what we can to mitigate our out of pocket costs to save money and still insure the comfort and health of our family. The Nest Learning Wi-Fi thermostat seems like a good fit for me.
