5 Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Smart Thermostat

It's not just the gadget geeks who are interested in smart thermostats these days. More and more people are getting on board with this trend because it can save them money, time, and energy. If you haven't considered one yet or want to know more about how they work before making a decision, read on for five tips that will show you how to get the most out of your smart thermostat.

1. Install the App

What good is a smart thermostat if you don't have an app to go with it? The whole point is that it makes controlling your home's temperature easier, so you should download an app for iOS or Android devices. Once you've installed the app, you can control your smart thermostat from anywhere in the world as long as you havot4e an internet connection.

2. Create a Schedule

One of the best things about smart thermostats is that they can be programmed to run on a schedule. This means you can have your home's temperature adjusted automatically according to what time it is and what day it is. For example, you can have the AC turned down at night when you're asleep and then turned back up before you wake up in the morning.

3. Take Advantage of Vacation Mode

Many smart thermostats have a vacation mode that you can use to save energy while you're away. When you put your system into vacation mode, it simply means that your normal settings are on hold while reducing your peak air conditioning demands. This can save you a lot of money on your energy bill while you're not even home.

4. Get a Smart Thermostat That Works with Alexa or Google Voice Commands

If you have an Amazon Echo or other device that works with the Alexa voice assistant, you might want to get a smart thermostat that works with Alexa. This way, you can control your home's temperature with your voice. The same is true for Google Home devices and other voice assistants.

5. Analyze Your Energy Reports

Most smart thermostats come with built-in energy reports that show you how much energy your home is using and when. This is a great way to see where you can save energy and make adjustments to your schedule.

Remember, if an air conditioning unit has high energy efficiency ratings, it can help you save money. It's therefore essential to look at the Energy Efficiency Rating and the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio of your new unit before buying it.
