Reduce Energy Costs in Toronto with a Smart Thermostat

Using a smart thermostat in your Toronto home is a clever way to save money on heating and cooling expenses.

A Wi-Fi thermostat is more clever than a programmable thermostat, which can only change settings based on a set schedule. A smart thermostat figures out your activities and knows when you leave the house. This allows it to change temperatures appropriately.

Apps give you the capability to monitor your home from a distance and modify temperature settings from almost anywhere. Plus, this smart home accessory shows your energy use in actual time.

A smart thermostat can be paired with most any HVAC system. Some models are compatible with Amazon Alexa, allowing you to set the thermostat with voice commands. Others include room sensors, which can minimize inconsistent temperatures.

5 Signs You Need a Smart Thermostat

It might be time for a smart thermostat if your home doesn’t feel comfortable or you don’t remember to adjust temperature settings when you leave.

Here’s a few other indications a smart thermostat is right for your home:

  1. Your energy bills keep going up.
  2. You’re regularly forgetting to lower or raise the thermostat.
  3. Your schedule is hectic—and constantly changes.
  4. You’re having problems regulating your home’s temperature.
  5. You want to limit energy loss.

How Smart Thermostats Save Energy

A smart thermostat takes the guesswork out of controlling your home’s temperature. It’s a good choice if you have a programmable thermostat that’s set correctly or unintentionally leave your HVAC system on all day.

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

Small temperature adjustments can add up to sizable savings over the course of a year—between 12 to 23 percent, according to two leading manufacturers. Your actual savings can depend on the part of the country where you are located, how big your house is, and your temperature and humidity preferences.

Monitor Your Home While You’re Away

Since smart thermostats are Wi-Fi-enabled, you can set them with a smartphone, tablet or laptop while you’re gone. You can also keep an eye on your system’s performance and get notifications if your furnace, air conditioner or heat pump isn’t operating correctly.

Can’t remember when you last changed your air filter? Or when you need to make an appointment for routine service? Your thermostat can let you know when it’s time.
