Reduce Energy Costs in Portland with a Smart Thermostat

Adding a smart thermostat to your Portland home is a brilliant way to save money on heating and cooling bills.

A Wi-Fi thermostat is even smarter than a programmable thermostat, which can only adjust settings based on what time it is. A smart thermostat monitors your activities and knows when you leave the house. This permits it to change temperatures as needed.

Apps on your smartphone or tablet give you the ability to watch your home while you’re away and modify temperature settings from almost anywhere. Plus, this smart home accessory displays your energy use in real time.

A smart thermostat can be used with most HVAC systems. Some types are compatible with Amazon Alexa, allowing you to set the thermostat with voice commands. Others come with room sensors, which can minimize hot and cold spots.

How Smart Thermostats Save Energy

A smart thermostat takes the guessing out of regulating your home’s temperature. It’s a great choice if you have a programmable thermostat that’s not configured properly or unintentionally letting your HVAC system stay on all day.

It saves energy by keeping the temperature as low as possible for as much time as possible. This helps stop wasting money on heating and cooling when you’re not home. Then, it warms up or cools down your house based on when you return.

Minor temperature changes can add up to sizable savings over the course of a year—between 12 to 23 percent, according to two top manufacturers. Your actual savings can depend on your location, how big your house is, and your temperature and humidity needs.

Monitor Your Home While You’re Away

Because smart thermostats are Wi-Fi-enabled, you can control them with a smartphone, tablet or laptop while you’re away. You can also watch your system’s performance and get alerts if your furnace, air conditioner or heat pump isn’t working correctly.

Not sure when you last changed the air filter? Or when you need to book periodic tune-ups? Your thermostat can let you know when it’s time.
