So you finally escaped life and got away on that big vacation that you have been planning for the last couple of years. You have traveled all the way to Cancun, Mexico from your little home in Upstate New York. You are sitting on the beach basking in the hot glow of the sun while everyone else you know freezes back home in five feet of snow. A cool breeze washes over you as you take a sip of your ice cold Piña Colada. Suddenly it hits you, tragedy! You just realized that you had forgotten to turn off your thermostat at home which may now end up costing you as much as that airfare to Cancun.
Hundreds of dollars are now needlessly warming up your vacant home. Ah, but you are prepared. Just a few months ago you installed a low cost, cutting edge Wi-Fi or smart thermostat that you can control with your smartphone. You now have the solution right in the palm of your hands. Because your smartphone in Cancun will interface with your thermostat in New York, you can turn off your thermostat with a touch of the touchscreen saving yourself all that wasted money. Now you can enjoy that Piña Colada with peace of mind.
Not only can consumers control their thermostat from a vacation on the beach, they can control it from anywhere, including the morning commute or in the office. Some features of a smart thermostat allow users to create zones within their home at varying settings for cost savings effect and warmth…or cool air.
There are quite a few things that you’d need to do and the thermostat is going to deeply affect the way you do them. However, if you manage to do them correctly, you’re going to end up with significant savings up your pocket.
Thermostats are designed to optimize the healing of your home. This is why you should use them to the fullest potential.
