Installing a smart thermostat is one of the cheapest ways to lower your household utility usage. The smart thermostat adjusts the amount of heating/cooling that is being delivered to the house. The smart thermostat also gives you the ability to adjust the temperature from anywhere you want using the application. So, if you left the air conditioning blasting, but you won’t be home for hours, you can easily lower your household temperature and reduce your electric usage. Smart thermostats estimate 10-25% reduction in heating and cooling costs with very little upfront cost. This is a great product for us to install alongside a solar installation!
