If you’re a tech-lover, it’s time to leave your manual thermostat behind and install a smart thermostat instead. Here are three ways American Standard’s range of programmable thermostats can help you save money and energy.
Automate Your Cooling System
Programmable thermostats allow you to create a number of temperature settings throughout the day, week, or even year. With these gadgets, it’s easy to set your air conditioner to save energy while you’re out all day and cool off right before you get home after work. You can also create different settings for weekends, so you’re sure to stay cool all day. Many models also accommodate seasonal settings, so your air conditioner will save energy by kicking into summer mode only when it heats up outside.
Optimize Your Home’s Temperature
Programming a series of regular temperatures will help you save energy most days, but sometimes plans change and things come up. When you decide to stay out a bit longer or head home sooner than planned, you can prompt your HVAC system to respond accordingly. Since most programmable thermostats have a Wi-Fi connection, you can log in and connect with yours to change the settings whenever you need to. By keeping your thermostat low when you don’t need the cool air, you’ll save both energy and money.
Plan Regular Air Conditioner Maintenance
Air conditioners typically need regular maintenance in order to run at peak capacity, but it’s not always easy to remember to schedule cleaning, drainage, or filter changes. Many programmable thermostats can remind you to schedule regular maintenance, making it easier to optimize your home’s cooling system.
