If you’re like most busy professionals in Asheboro, North Carolina, you probably don’t have a lot of extra time to spare. Juggling work responsibilities and necessary at-home tasks can feel downright exhausting, especially when you receive an outrageous utility bill because you forgot to adjust your thermostat. 

Instead of cooling an empty house all day while you’re at work, you can control your HVAC system from an app on your phone from anywhere. Here’s how a smart thermostat can help you take back control of your comfort and keep your utility costs low.

Smart Thermostats Help Save Money

When programmable thermostats first appeared in the HVAC industry, they saved property owners ample money. A smart thermostat takes savings to the next level by offering better control of the system from anywhere. Forget to switch it to vacation mode before leaving on a trip? No problem. Just adjust the setting when you get to the airport. When you can adjust the temperature from an app on your phone, you won’t waste money heating or cooling your house when you’re not there.

Smart Thermstats Reduce Energy Waste

Some smart thermostat options have built-in tracking and reporting functions to help you maximize energy savings. In fact, your new thermostat might even sense whether people are at home and moving around. If the house is still for an extended period, a smart thermostat can automatically adjust the temperature for you.

On the flip side, a smart thermostat can override its own settings. It can maintain a comfortable temperature, even on a day when you set it to get warmer or cooler. For example, say you’re at home taking a sick day, but you set the thermostat to get up to 78 degrees on weekdays. Movement in the house can trigger the smart thermostat to keep the temperature locked at your normal at-home setting.

These impressive benefits are only two of the many reasons to upgrade to a smart thermostat. If you’re interested in learning more, check out our selection of state-of-the-art smart thermostats or contact Charlie’s Heating and Cooling at (336) 629-5453.
