Having a smart thermostat can help you save money on heating and cooling in your Wildorado, Texas home. The more you know about your thermostat, the more you can save. Maximize your thermostat’s energy-efficient potential by taking advantage of these three features you didn’t know about.
Local Weather Forecast
If you stick with the same preprogrammed schedule every week, you may have noticed that your home becomes uncomfortably warm or cool when outdoor temperatures change. The best way to avoid this is to take the weather forecast into account when programming your thermostat. The Housewise Wi-Fi thermostat makes it easy to do just that by providing a local four-day weather forecast.
Dirty Air Filter Detection
Many smart thermostats allow you to set filter-change reminders at fixed intervals. However, the Evolution Connex Control thermostat takes this feature a step further with TrueSense dirty air filter detection. Rather than reminding you to change the air filter every month, this thermostat can simply let you know when your air filter is dirty enough to warrant replacement.
As part of its intuitive programming, the Bryant Housewise Wi-Fi thermostat lets you program different comfort settings for common activity periods. You can set one temperature for when you’re asleep and another for when you’re awake, as well as different settings for while you’re home versus away. There’s even a vacation setting. Taking the time to set up these temperature profiles and add your own custom profiles makes it easier to program a weekly schedule that fits your lifestyle.
If you’re thinking about adding a humidifier, ventilator, or air purifier to your HVAC system, you may want to know that the Evolution Connex Control thermostat is compatible with each of these units. That means that once you have these HVAC add-ons installed, you’ll be able to manage every aspect of your home’s comfort in one place.
These are just a few beneficial features of smart thermostats, and mastering your smart thermostat is the first step toward energy efficiency. For more help with saving energy, call Grizzle Heating & Air at 806-553-4690.
