Are Smart Thermostats Worth It?
Smart thermostats don’t just allow you to set what you want the temperature in your home to be at a certain time, it will also learn your cooling habits. According to the Nest website, their smart thermostat works starting on day one. It will register the time and the temperature you want at various points in the day.
During the first few days you program the thermostat, it’s important you do so in a way that promotes energy efficiency. In the summer, that means you’ll want to consider turning the temperature up before you go to bed and before you go to work. The Department of Energy recommends keeping your house warmer than normal while you’re away and setting your thermostat at 78 degrees when you’re home. So if you set your smart thermostat above 78 degrees at the same time every morning just before you go out the door, it will begin to notice the pattern.
A Nest thermostat will start learning your temperature patterns and start copying them after you’ve manually programmed the temperature for three days. Then, it will use the settings you’ve chosen automatically every day. Your smart thermostat will make certain that your home is energy efficient. And when winter comes you can use your smart thermostat to set temperatures for heat, turning your temperature down at bedtime and when nobody is going to be home. If you’re using the Nest thermostat you should note that there are different temperature modes for heat and cooling.
