The Many Ways that You Can Save with a Smart Thermostat
Smart thermostats work in conjunction with room occupancy sensors, so they automatically go into savings mode when you are away. They can be linked to smart speakers, whereby you can use voice commands to adjust the temperature in your room. Some models of smart thermostats literally “learn” your habits and adjust themselves accordingly.
While you are away from home, you can use smart phone apps to remotely manage your AC. It’s easy to program your smart thermostat with your phone to take advantage of the lowest rates offered under our time of use pricing plans and avoid the higher prices that are associated with peak hour use between 4-9 p.m.
