Is A Smart Thermostat Your Answer To Rising Energy Costs?

Living in the new digital era means living with technology more than ever before. From our mobile devices, to now home appliances, ‘smart’ systems are here to stay. Homeowners now have the option to upgrade their traditional thermostats to ‘Smart’ alternatives giving them greater control of their central heating from the palm of their hand.

The question people often have hanging over their heads before switching over tends to be ‘can it save me money?’ 

Amongst other benefits including convenience, the answer is yes it can. So let’s bridge the knowledge gap between ourselves and homeowners in our latest edition to our money saving series.

How Much Does A Homeowner Save On Average With A Smart Thermostat?

Nest is one of the major players within the smart thermostat industry. Their independent study boasted an average saving of 10 to 12% on heating bills.

With rising energy costs we are seeing more and more enquiries on smart thermostat installation and we believe it’s important to explain exactly how they work.

So How Do They Work?

Using an internet connection homeowners are able to connect to their thermostat via its’ official app. It is here where you can control your heating wherever you are. (Imagine turning the heating on as you leave work in time for when you arrive) 

Simply put, smart thermostats are all about making home life easier, simpler and more efficient. You have the power to schedule when your heating comes on, change the temperature and edit the automatic settings via your phone. Say goodbye to getting up during your favourite tv show just to turn the heating on!

Energy Saving Setting

Amongst cool features such as voice control and other smart appliance connection (smart lights etc), most smart thermostats come with an energy tracking feature. Monitoring exactly when you use energy and optimising your central heating by understanding when you’ll be using it the most. 

Tell Me More On How They Can Save Me Money

By using scheduling, geofencing and even motion sensing, smart thermostats know exactly when to turn the heating on or off and up or down without you even realising.

How you use your existing thermostat defines just how much you will save with a smart one. If you’re the type of person to not really bother with utilising the programming on your thermostat or manually set your thermostat to stay at a single temperature at the time, then you are the ideal homeowner for a new smart thermostat.

Smart thermostats save money by keeping the household temperature as low as possible for as long as possible. 

You tell your thermostat your ideal temperature for when you need it most and they do the rest. With the smart technology installed, the smart thermostats ensure your home is warm enough for when you get in and automatically running the central heating behind the scenes to ensure it’s lower at specific times and higher at other times. 

Allowing adjustments according to your schedule, they also begin to understand your homes’ behaviour and essentially work with you in constructing the ultimate schedule and produces energy based around this.

They even have the technology to not only log, but they have the capability to thoroughly understand the type of changes and adjustments you manually make. Over time, their use becomes even more apparent by digitally painting a picture of your whereabouts and offer ideas for further optimisation.


Our smart thermostat installation covers a variety of brands such as Nest, Hive, Tado and Honeywell.
