The hottest months of the summer are upon us. July and August can be absolutely brutal, especially in the southern states. This can be taxing on your air conditioning system, your comfort, and your electricity bill.
Inside your home, the temperature can vary from room to room. Heat typically rises to the upper floors and gets trapped, creating ‘hot zones'. If these areas are out of the range of your thermostat, it will have a hard time keeping every room cool.
And if you try to compensate by blasting the air conditioning until the hottest rooms are cool, it can cost you; creating large bills and enormous inefficiencies.
When it comes to keeping your home comfortable, it all starts with the Smart Thermostat. This device allows you to control the temperature from anywhere, and even set schedules to automate the AC to crank up before you get home from work.
BUT WHAT ABOUT THOSE HOT ZONES?
Remote temperature sensors sync with your thermostat, and provide valuable data that can evaluate these 'hot zones'. These sensors can deliver precision comfort to any room in your home in a way that keeps energy wastage down.
Here's how it works:
Alarm.com Temperature Sensors should can be installed in any room of your home. This allows the Smart Thermostat the to read the temperature in each room.
If you want your bedroom cooled to 72 degrees, for example, the thermostat will target your bedroom specifically, and cool your home until the bedroom's temperature sensor registers a perfect 72 degrees.
CREATING A SCHEDULE:
Your thermostat can now target any room with a remote temperature sensor. Change your target rooms manually, or do it all with a schedule. Alarm.com makes it easy to create a schedule targeting different rooms at different times.
You can target a bedroom between 9pm and 7am for a cool night, and switch back to the main thermostat downstairs when it's time to get up. When your kids arrive home from camp in the afternoon, you can have your living room sensor take over. At 10pm, the bedroom sensor will take over again.
Your ideal temperature 'follows' you and your family around the home.
COMFORT & SAVINGS:
Precision comfort helps conserve energy by delivering just the amount of cooling that you need, and no more. There are even more ways to save energy with an Alarm.com Smart Thermostat.
Auto-setback monitors your doors and windows for potential energy waste: if you (or your kids) leave a door open, your thermostat will alert you, and automatically set back to minimize energy waste until you close it.
Geo-Services uses your smartphone's location to set your thermostat to ‘savings' mode automatically when you leave the house, and to ‘comfort' mode when you're on your way home. You leave a comfortable home, and return to a comfortable home, but consume less energy overall.
Finally, on the hottest days of all, our Extreme Temps feature gives you the option of automatically setting your thermostat to a degree or two higher when the temperature outside reaches a certain threshold.
This subtly reduces the amount of energy your AC uses during the hottest hours of the day, without impacting your comfort too much.
