Reduce Energy Costs in Calgary with a Smart Thermostat

Installing a smart thermostat in your Calgary home is one of the most intelligent ways to save money on heating and cooling costs.

A Wi-Fi thermostat is more clever than a programmable thermostat, which can only change settings based on a set schedule. A smart thermostat learns from your behavior and knows when you are away from home. This allows it to adjust temperatures accordingly.

Apps give you the ability to keep an eye on your home remotely and adjust temperature settings from almost wherever. Plus, this smart home device displays your energy utilization in real time.

A smart thermostat can be paired with most any HVAC system. Some kinds are compatible with Amazon Alexa, allowing you to set the thermostat with voice commands. Others include room sensors, which can minimize temperature swings.

5 Signs You Need a Smart Thermostat

You should probably get a smart thermostat if your home doesn’t feel comfortable or you neglect to change temperature settings when you are away from home.

Here’s a few other indications a smart thermostat is right for your home:

  1. Your energy bills keep going up.
  2. You’re constantly forgetting to lower or raise the thermostat.
  3. Your schedule is hectic—and constantly changes.
  4. You’re having difficulty controlling your home’s temperature.
  5. You want to minimize energy loss.

How Smart Thermostats Save Energy

A smart thermostat takes the guessing out of handling your home’s temperature. It’s a great choice if you have a programmable thermostat that’s configured accurately or inadvertently leave your HVAC system running all day.

It saves energy by keeping the temperature as low as feasible for as much time as possible. This helps stop wasting money on heating and cooling when you’re away. Then, it warms up or cools down your house based on when you get back.

Small temperature adjustments can add up to large savings over the course of a year—between 12 to 23 percent, according to two top manufacturers. Your actual savings can be different depending on where you live, how large your rooms are, and your temperature and humidity needs.

Monitor Your Home While You’re Away

Since smart thermostats are Wi-Fi-enabled, you can set them with a smartphone, tablet or laptop while you’re not at home. You can also watch your system’s performance and get notifications if your furnace, air conditioner or heat pump isn’t running correctly.

Can’t remember when you last changed your air filter? Or when you need to book routine maintenance? Your thermostat can prompt you when it’s time.
