How can you maximize your central air conditioner's performance this summer?
There are several signs that your central air conditioner isn't running at optimal performance: climbing utility bills, regular repairs, and the sound of your air conditioner running all the time. When you ask the experts, you'll get plenty of advice. Switch away from cheap air filters. Schedule preventative maintenance.
But these aren't the only things that can improve the efficiency of your central air conditioner. Stop dreading the appearance of your utility bills this summer or sweating even more in the hot, humid weather. Instead, look into a small add-on HVAC product that could save you a lot of hassle and cash.
This small product? A smart thermostat.
Here are three ways replacing your old thermostat with a smart thermostat can help you get the most out of your central air conditioner.
1. 10 will give you 10.
You could save approximately 10% off your summer cooling bill just by turning your thermostat down 10 degrees during the day. But that information doesn't do you any good if you forget to reset the thermostat before you leave for the day. You can easily avoid that misstep with a programmable thermostat.
2. Cool when you want it.
A smart thermostat can also be programmed to cool the house back down before your scheduled arrival time. That way, you don't have to experience the warm house, but you will have the peace of mind in knowing that your central air conditioner wasn't running all day.
3. Power in your pocket.
Most smart thermostats can even be controlled with your phone. When you are at work, on vacation, or just out for the day, you can always check your home's temperature. As long as you are on a device that can connect to the internet - a laptop, a tablet, a smart phone - you can control your home's thermostat.
