In Jacksonville, Florida, where the summer heat makes us never want to set foot outside, not one bit of cool air should ever be wasted. The HVAC industry is constantly improving methods for keeping your home running efficiently. In recent years, smart thermostats have enjoyed some increased time in the spotlight because they give you more control over air conditioning, leading to greater efficiency and comfort. Here’s how smart thermostats can lead to greater efficiency.
Personalized Temperature Control
Whenever you leave home, whether for work or vacation, leaving the thermostat at the same setting all day and all night, results in energy waste. You might resist increasing the temperature because you don’t want to return to a hot and humid living space. Smart thermostats help to solve this problem.
The convenience of these smart devices, allows users to adjust the temperature settings on their thermostat even when they are away from home. You will be able to program settings based on your schedule, and this allows you to conserve energy and remain comfortable at all times.
Is there a room or section of your home that is seldom used? If that room is being air conditioned, then energy is being wasted. Smart thermostats allow you to divide your home into different zones that can be kept at different temperatures. This could also be advantageous for members of the family who may want a different temperature in their room than the others. These zones also have their own thermostats.
Smart thermostats also run weekly diagnostic reports regarding energy usage so that you can observe patterns and make adjustments where necessary. These diagnostics will show you where you may be losing energy and give you an idea of how to increase efficiency. Reports are sent to your smart device so that you can access the information at any time.
