WiFi Set-Back Thermostats Benefit You and Pay for Themselves

With modern Wi-Fi set-back thermostats, keeping your home at the right temperature is not only easy, it can save you money and give you flexibility. For every degree that you decide to cool or heat your home each month, the costs come directly out of your bank account.

On hot summer days and cold winter nights, this comfort may be worth the money, after all, that’s what your heating and cooling system is for. On the other hand, while you’re away from your home or sleeping, this is simply money that is going to waste. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, “You can save as much as 10% a year on heating and cooling by simply turning your thermostat back 7°-10° F for 8 hours a day.” Regardless of where you live, this is a huge savings over the course of a year, let alone over the next decade.

As alluring as these numbers are, in order to achieve these savings, you’ll have to remember to turn down your thermostat every day. Consistency is the key to achieving both energy efficiency and savings, but remembering to do this each day can be quite a challenge. With a set-back thermostat, these adjustments are controlled automatically, ensuring that you’re seeing the savings that you deserve. With savings like this year-in and year-out, it isn’t hard to see how purchasing a set-back thermostat will pay for itself many times over.

WiFi Thermostats make your home a smart homeIn addition to cost savings, a set-back thermostat also provides comfort, reliability, and offers a higher level of flexibility. These systems are programmable, allowing you to set the optimal temperature in your home for the hours that you’re most active, and reduce energy consumption while you’re away, or at night while you’re sleeping.

When choosing a set-back thermostat, the Home Owners Network asserts that choosing a quality system is essential, as it will be easier to configure and maintain. Having an easy to control interface makes it simple to update for more efficiency, seasonal changes, and going on vacation. This is not only an environmentally-friendly approach, it also keeps your home at a consistently comfortable temperature while you’re there. Trusted industry leaders like Honeywell have built Wi-Fi access into their thermostat’s controls, allowing you to monitor and adjust them from anywhere in the world. You can even receive notifications in the event that your heating or cooling system malfunctions. Imagine how valuable it would be to know that there is something wrong with your furnace while you’re away on vacation. You could save yourself from coming home to a disaster.

When you live in an area of the world where the temperature changes so frequently like we do, being able to control the temperature of your home or business at your fingertips is invaluable.

When it comes to protecting your home, you want to ensure that you have every safety measure in place. You may have an alarm system for intruders, a smoke alarm to alert your family in case of fire - but what about protection from things you cant see? Were not talking about ghosts, but something that is even scarier: Carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide (CO) is a by-product of combustion, present whenever fuel is burned. Prolonged exposure can lead to lasting health problems and even death. Since carbon monoxide is virtually undetectable, carbon monoxide poisoning is quite common. In fact, the CDC estimates that more than 20,000 Americans go to the emergency room each year due to carbon monoxide poisoning. Monitoring carbon monoxide emissions in your home is so crucial to your familys safety. CO cannot be seen or smelled, which means every homeowner should invest in CO detectors to protect their family. By the time you start experiencing symptoms of CO poisoning - like lightheadedness,

Making the best use of all the spaces in your home often leads to a common question - Should I add ductwork to a three-season room to make it usable year-round? Unfortunately, there is no straightforward answer. Quite simply, the answer is that it depends. But this does not help you, does it? Lets look at a few factors which come into play when making this decision. Insulation Oftentimes, in older three-season rooms, windows are abundant and insulation is lacking. These features leave plenty of room for energy leaks. In short, the structure was just not designed for comfort in extreme temperatures. Adding ductwork to this type of room would likely disappoint. High heating and cooling requirements accompany the lack of insulation and the common single-paned window. The bottom-line is that the room would be cold in the winter and warm in the summer.

While the hot, humid summers of Ohio call for air conditioning, understanding the best unit to meet the needs of any home proves to be a foreign language to many. Lets clear the air with a few facts and figures to get you in-the-know when purchasing an air conditioner. The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) produces a rating of sorts for air conditioners. It is figured this way: The amount of cooling a given unit produces (BTU) divided by the amount of electricity (watts) used over a typical cooling season. SEER figures range from 13 to 25. Since the unit is tested on static conditions, the rating represents a units best performance. In brief, this number reflects the maximum rating. For instance, a unit rated at 13 does not perform above but may fall below this figure. Thats helpful. But, what does it mean to you, the consumer? After all, it is just a number on the box. A few answered questions might clear things up even more. What Does the SEER Rating Tell You? Efficiency.
