How Does a Smart Thermostat Save Money on Utility Bills?

Everyone is always looking for ways to save money on utility bills. At All Services, we build partnerships with our valued customers by not only providing the most comprehensive services for heating, cooling, and electrical services, but by also educating our customers with ways to save money on utilities. Here's how a smart thermostat can save you money.

How Much Can a Smart Thermostat Save?

Smart thermostats can save homeowners an average of $10-15 a month on heating and cooling costs, which adds up to $120-150 a year in savings. This means that the thermostat will pay for itself in a couple of years (or even in a year, depending on the brand of thermostat you purchase).

Homeowners are able to program a smart thermostat with specific temperatures for different times of the day. This enables you to use less energy by not heating or cooling your home as much when it isn't necessary, thereby saving you money on your utility bill.

How Are Smart Thermostats Programmed?

Smart thermostats are basically divided into four different time periods. You can set your desired temperature for each time-frame, as well as program the start time and end time of each zone. Here is an example of how to program a smart thermostat.

  • Morning: Program the start time, with your desired temperature, for a few minutes before you wake up, so the house will be comfortable. The end time would be around the time everyone leaves the house.
  • Afternoon: If the house is empty during the afternoon, adjust the temperature setting to either reduce the heat or air conditioning, depending on the season.
  • Evening: A few minutes before everyone starts to get back home, you would program the temperature to return to your comfort level.
  • Overnight: You won't need as much heat or air conditioning overnight, and can adjust your temperature settings accordingly.

Some smart thermostats will even automatically program themselves based on your usual settings.If you're considering having a smart thermostat installed, give us a call.
