It’s the season when your air conditioner will help you beat the heat during hot weather in San Marcos, Texas. The good news is keeping your home comfortable this summer is easy when you optimize your smart thermostat. Not only will optimizing your smart thermostat help you keep your home a reasonable temperature but it can also save you on your annual energy bills. Here’s how to optimize your smart thermostat for summer savings:

Optimize Your Smart Thermostat

Your smart thermostat gives you the ability to control your home temperature remotely. It also lets you create detailed daily programs and stores data about your energy use in an app. That makes it simple to take control of your energy usage and how much you spend to cool your home.

Set a Program to Suit Your Lifestyle

Adjusting your temperature 7 to 10 degrees for 8 hours during your day can provide you with significant savings on energy. To help reduce your energy use while keeping your home comfortable, determine your preferred temperature. Then, create a program that slowly brings that temperature up to about 10 degrees higher while you sleep and slowly brings it down when you’re active.

Adjust Your Thermostat From Your Phone

With your smart thermostat app, you can adjust your temperature settings directly from your smart device. You can remotely increase your temperature while you’re away to reduce costs and bring the temperature back to comfortable levels when you’re home. As a result, you’ll be able to control how much energy you’re using when you need it.

Track Energy Reports on an App

Your smart thermostat is designed to learn about your energy habits and your preferred comfort level. As it receives data, it can adjust your schedule and provide you with reports on your energy habits. You can also view these energy reports to spot areas where you can improve your energy use and save a few dollars on your utility bills.
