How Much Energy & Money Can Be Saved With a Smart Thermostat?

Everyone is looking for ways to save money these days. While that’s a primary concern for many people, saving energy is also important. As responsible consumers, whether heating or cooling, we want to have the smallest environmental impact as possible when keeping our homes comfortable. One way to lower energy usage and keep more money in your pocket or purse is to invest in a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats can be a valuable addition to the overall performance of any HVAC system. 

Energy Star says their certified smart thermostats save an average of 8% annually on heating or cooling. Other smart home device manufacturers such as Nest claim even bigger savings, up to 15% per year. Either way, a penny saved is a penny earned as the old saying goes. When you watch the pennies, the dollars will soon add up. 

Why Is a Smart Thermostat a Smart Investment?

Smart thermostats can be programmed to heat or cool only when the indoor space is occupied, so energy isn’t wasted on an empty home. Many models also have the ability to set vacation schedules. Homeowners can set the temperature to the desired setting needed to keep indoor humidity levels reasonable and then automatically adjust to the temperature you desire when you return. 

These smart thermostats often sync with any electronic device such as smartphones, laptops or tablets, enabling the user to have access from just about anywhere. This is both freeing and provides the ultimate control over your utility costs. 

What’s the Bottom Line?

While no one can guarantee a set amount of savings on your energy costs or the specific level of environmental impact a smart thermostat can provide, what every industry expert will agree with is that overall energy usage and costs will go down by installing a smart thermostat in your home.
