Use Your Thermostat to Cut Costs

A thermostat is a vital part of your La Habra, CA home: allowing you complete control over your heating and air conditioning system and regulating the temperature in your home. Summers are always brutal here in Southern California, and we usually end up paying a great deal for air conditioning services.  But timely use of your thermostat can help cut into those costs, without skimping unduly on the cool air you need to keep your house comfortable on even the hottest days. Here’s two quick lists of a few tips to help you out, one for existing thermostats and one for newer thermostats you may wish to consider purchasing.

New Thermostats

New thermostats are often equipped with smart technology that led you cut into costs in a number of ways. For starters, it can analyze your cooling habits and make little micro-adjustments to maximize efficiency. It can also analyze local conditions around your house and make changes as necessary (lowering the temperature in response to high humidity for example). Perhaps most importantly, many modern thermostats can connect to your WiFi, meaning that you can control them from anywhere in the world via an app on your phone. No more worrying about whether the system got turned off, or whether your kids will set the thermostat much lower than it will go. Just check your phone and make adjustments.

Old Thermostats

Even if you don’t have a newer thermostat, you can still make adjustments to your habits to help save money. For example, set the temperature to 78 instead of 75 every day, allowing you to stay cool without paying quite so much. And if you run your AC in an empty house all day, use your programming feature to turn it on 20 minutes before you expect to arrive home. You’ll be surprised how much of a difference it can make!
