Make the Smart Choice – Install a New Thermostat!

Summer is a good time to start making some changes that will increase the energy efficiency of your Ohio home. With a large portion of your energy budget going to heating and cooling, every little bit of savings helps. One of the easiest ways to do that is to install a programmable thermostat in your home.

Programmable thermostats let you set the temperature according to your schedule. In this case, you can keep the house warmer during the day when you’re at work and cooler in the morning and evening when you’re home.¬†

If you’re ready for the next step for your home, consider a smart thermostat installation.

Smart thermostats are synced to an online account that allows you to access the system through a computer or your smartphone. You can still create a temperature schedule for regular everyday use, but this access allows you to make changes instantly. Say, for example, your child becomes sick at school. Before you leave the office you can override the temperature schedule ensuring the house is comfortable when you and your child arrive home.

Unlike regular programmable thermostats, smart thermostats collect data on your energy use, which can help you make even more changes that can lower your bills.

The system can also keep track of regular maintenance and alert you when something needs to be done (for example, changing your air filters).

There are many different smart thermostats on the market, to find the best one that is right for your home, contact Butler Heating & Air Conditioning for all your indoor home comfort needs.
