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 utility bills.

A Wi-Fi thermostat is more clever than a programmable thermostat, which can only adjust settings based on a set schedule. A smart thermostat figures out your behavior 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 fine-tune temperature settings from almost anywhere. Plus, this smart home equipment displays your energy consumption live.

A smart thermostat can be used with most any HVAC system. Some models are compatible with Amazon Alexa, allowing you to adjust the thermostat with your voice. Others have room sensors, which can lessen 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 forget to change temperature settings when you take off.

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

  1. Your energy bills keep increasing.
  2. You’re regularly forgetting to adjust the thermostat.
  3. Your schedule is hectic—and constantly changes.
  4. You’re having difficulty regulating your home’s temperature.
  5. You want to limit energy spending.

How Smart Thermostats Save Energy

A smart thermostat takes the guesswork out of handling your home’s temperature. It’s a great choice if you have a programmable thermostat that’s set correctly or inadvertently leave your HVAC system running all day.

It uses less energy by keeping the temperature as low as practical for as much time as possible. This helps you avoid wasting money on heating and cooling when you’re away. Then, it warms up or cools down your house based on when you get back.

Small temperature adjustments can add up to large savings over the length 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 appropriately.

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