Smart thermostats are popular as more people look at ways to cut their heating bills. A common question people have is: “Do smart thermostats save money?” There are a lot of ways to save energy and cut heating bills from improving insulation to using technology that monitors and optimises energy usage, such as a smart thermostat.
But how do you decide if a smart thermostat is a match for your home? If you’re interested in saving money on your heating bills and have an older thermostat, a smart thermostat is almost undoubtedly going to save you money as it optimises heating settings by tailoring them to your home.
USING A PROGRAMMABLE THERMOSTAT
Programmable thermostats are probably the most common kind, but not everyone utilises the full functionality of these temperature controllers as they require some manual work. If you are, however, using a programmable thermostat like a manual thermostat, it can cost you a bundle in heating bills.
Smart WiFi thermostats, such as the Warmup 4iE, solve this problem by learning how you use the thermostat by creating a schedule for you. The 4iE also comes with built-in, preset, programs for different applications.
USING AND CONTROLLING HEATING
If you forget to turn down the heating when you leave the house or have a differing schedule (when was the last time you got home later that you thought you would just because your plans changed?), a smart thermostat will definitely help you to manage your heating bills and keep your home at a comfortable temperature when desired. Leaving the heating on all day just to enjoy a warm home when you get back is expensive and not energy efficient.
Some smart thermostats will even learn more efficient temperatures for your house, like what temperature to use when you’re away and times you can turn the heating off early and still stay comfortable.
INVESTIGATING ENERGY USAGE
The 4iE comes with MyWarmup portal that is full of useful data and information about the way you use your heating. You can investigate your daily, weekly, monthly and yearly temperature, energy and cost data to better understand how your home reacts to heating and what uses the most energy.
The 4iE has an outstanding design, easy to read and use touchscreen and it can save up to £200 on an average UK heating bill by finding smart ways to heat your home.
It’s the perfect match for anyone looking to save money on their heating bills. Learn more about how the 4iE Smart WiFi Thermostat can help to cut your heating bills.
