3 Startling Facts About Home Climate Control
Find Out Why Your Residence Would Benefit From A Smart Thermostat
If you own a home in the Charlotte, NC area, chances are you spend plenty every year heating and cooling your property.
Luckily, there’s a readily available solution that will help you save money and energy consumption each month: a smart thermostat.
Smart thermostats can automatically regulate the temperature in your home to create an eco-friendly home environment whether you’re at work, lounging in your great room or readying for sleep. They also can inform you of your energy consumption patterns so that you naturally can consume less.
Most importantly, though, climate control technologies such as smart thermostats shouldn’t be considered just a convenience. They can provide real, lasting benefits for your home and the environment.
Don’t believe us? Below are three startling facts you should know about home energy consumption and smart thermostats.
Fact No. 1
Almost half of Americans’ energy bills every month go toward heating and cooling costs alone – for an average of more than $900 per year, and that number only goes up for luxury estates with large square footage.
Of course, a smart thermostat won’t eliminate your need to consume energy for heating and cooling purposes.
What it will do, though, is automatically recognize when you don’t need to be spending energy – instead saving you and your home from consuming.
Fact No. 2
Nest research in 2015 revealed that smart thermostats save an average of at least 10-12 percent on heating costs and 15 percent on cooling costs – equivalent to savings between $131 and $145 per year.
That’s actual proof of smart thermostats working more efficiently than a typical one.
Another smart thermostat brand, ecobee, claimed in a late 2013 study that its American customers save an average of 23 percent on heating and cooling costs.
While those numbers prove that you can save using a smart thermostat, it’s difficult to understand the real potential impact of smart thermostats without looking at what might happen if everyone in America owned one. That brings us to fact No. 3.
Fact No. 3
If everyone in America owned an ENERGY STAR-certified smart thermostat, the country would save $740 million per year and offset 13 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions.
To put that in perspective, that would be enough money saved to build two Bank of America Stadiums and enough greenhouse gas unused to offset the emissions of 1.2 million cars – every year.
Of course, it’s easy to say, “this is what would happen if everyone owned a smart thermostat.”
But if you choose to upgrade your home climate control with a smart thermostat, the U.S. is one step closer to reaching that ideal goal.
