What makes a home smart? It’s not a good GPA. It’s having traditional home appliances and accessories such as refrigerators, light bulbs, and even doorbells connected to the internet.
As far as “smart” things go, a smart thermostat might be the easiest upgrade to make in your home that can save you the most money over time.
Bring your own thermostat and earn up to $100
This may not be news if you already own a qualifying thermostat. However, there’s one great benefit you might not know about. Read a little further to see how you could earn up to $100 by enrolling in SRP’s Bring Your Own Thermostat (BYOT) program.
If you’re not familiar, you might be wondering, “what is a smart thermostat? Are they worth it?”
Unlike a traditional thermostat, a smart thermostat’s wi-fi connectivity gives you the ability to manage the energy use of your home’s air conditioner remotely from an app on your mobile device. There are some key benefits to installing one:
By using a combination of technologies such as auto-scheduling, motion sensing and geofencing, smart thermostats keep your home at the ideal temperature when you’re there and save on cooling and heating costs by automatically adjusting it when you’re away. This increased efficiency helps save energy and money.
One of the features people find most convenient is the ability to control the temperature of their home from wherever they may be. Whether you want to make your home extra chilly on your drive home from work, or heat things up a bit before jumping out of bed, simply grab your phone and take control of your smart thermostat.
Many smart thermostats can show how much energy your HVAC system uses every day. This makes finding out how to save even more on your energy bill easier than ever.
Some smart thermometers like the Google Nest Learning Thermostat and the ecobee SmartThermostat with Voice Control learn the way you use energy to cool and heat your home after just a few days. They can then adjust automatically. Or should we say automagically?
Is a smart thermostat right for you? Well, if you like to save money by using less energy, then we’d say, “yes!” Start saving today with a smart thermostat instant rebate when purchased from SRP Marketplace.
