Reduce Energy Costs in Calgary with a Smart Thermostat

Adding a smart thermostat to your Calgary home is a clever way 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 as needed.

Apps give you the power to keep an eye on your home remotely and adjust temperature settings from almost wherever. Plus, this smart home device shows 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 have room sensors, which can minimize hot and cold spots.

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 adjust temperature settings when you are away from home.

Here’s a few other signals 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 calendar is hectic—and frequently changes.
  4. You’re having difficulty controlling your home’s temperature.
  5. You want to minimize energy spending.

How Smart Thermostats Save Energy

A smart thermostat takes the estimating out of handling your home’s temperature. It’s a great choice if you have a programmable thermostat that’s not set up accurately or inadvertently leave your HVAC system running all day.

It uses less energy by keeping the temperature as low as feasible for as long 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 leading manufacturers. Your actual savings can be different depending on your location, 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 alerts if your furnace, air conditioner or heat pump isn’t operating 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.
