Stupid winter... Spring is just a few days away, but snowstorms, record lows, and ever changing temps make it tough to regulate the heat in your home. JUST CRANK IT UP? That could cost hundreds of dollars a month!
We've got a solution for STUPID WINTER.
Getting a smart thermostat can save you hundreds of dollars in energy costs annually, while also keeping your family more comfortable. Unlike programmable thermostats, they're easy to use and come with more ways to save energy than simple scheduling. With the crazy winter weather we are having this week, we aren't out of the winter woods yet!
When it's time to turn up the heat, that also means higher energy bills. Adding an Alarm.com Remote Thermostat to your smart security system, professionally installed by American Defense Systems can help. This technology knows what's happening around your home, and uses that knowledge to save energy when you don't need to use it. We've still got a few weeks of winter left, and the weather outside is still frightful! Here are a few tips using your smart thermostat, that can help cut your energy costs over the next few weeks and beyond.
Smart Thermostat Schedules
If you've ever endured programming a thermostat at the wall, you'll love our Smart Thermostat and mobile app. It makes it easy to create custom schedules, fine-tuned to save energy when you're not there while still making things comfortable when you are.
In addition to scheduling, our smart thermostat also saves energy by reacting to your activity. Our Geo-Services feature uses your smartphone location to determine whether you're home or away, and turns your heating to either ‘comfort' or ‘savings' accordingly. You don't have to lift a finger.
With visitors, packages and carol-singers, your open your front door a lot at this time of year. Avoid heating the neighborhood excessively with our Smart Thermostat's auto-setback feature, which sets your thermostat back automatically when a door or window is open for too long. It works in summer too!
Less Standby Waste
It's not just heating an empty house that wastes energy: many everyday devices consume power even when they're in standby mode. With Alarm.com-powered smart plugs, you can set rules that automatically turn off the power to ‘energy vampire' devices like your TV and DVR when you leave home.
If you want to go further, Alarm.com gives you plenty of insight and tools to make deeper energy savings.
Your Alarm.com app gives you a complete picture of your home's energy use, and lets you set energy-saving goals with projected monthly costs. Alerts and daily energy summaries will help you stay on track and save more. Adding a Temperature Sensor can also help regulate the temperature throughout your home. Click here to learn more.
