Thermostats are an amazing invention — the ability to regulate the temperature in your house just by turning a dial is one of the greatest technological achievements of the modern age and a powerful way to reduce your energy use.

But what happens when you’re constantly battling with your family members over the preferred temperature in your home? You like it cool; your partner prefers to be toasty warm. You pay the electricity bill, but your mother-in-law insists on cranking the air conditioner — you get the picture. The balance between energy savings, comfort, and finances can be difficult to achieve in a multi-person household, but with a smart thermostat, you can take back control.

Set the Perfect Schedule

Almost 90% of people with programmable thermostats never program them, largely because it can seem complicated. This means they may leave their HVAC system running while they’re gone or make it exert itself to play catch up when they turn it on after a long day. It’s inefficient and results in a waste of energy — and money.

Smart thermostats take the pain out of programming with pre-set schedules ready to go out of the box. They can be changed to suit your household using an app on your smartphone instead of the buttons on the device itself.
