Home automation systems installed in Leeds by FirstEye
Although the weather is warm at the moment, autumn is just around the corner and as the temperature starts to drop, many of us start thinking about the cost of heating our homes. In addition, as many people are now working from home, keeping your house warm during the winter is going to become more important than ever before! With this in mind, a home automation system can help you make big savings when it comes to reducing heating bills.
Take control of your heating with a smart thermostat
A smart thermostat can be installed as part of a home automation system and is a new type of central heating control. Designed to be accessed and adjusted remotely using an app, a smart thermostat could provide you with far more control over your central heating, regardless of what time of day or night, or where you are.
A range of smart thermostats are currently available and whilst each has different features and works slightly differently, they are likely to offer the option to:
• Turn your heating on and off, or to control the temperature via an app on a mobile phone, tablet or laptop.
• Control the heating in different rooms or areas of your home, helping to avoid wasted energy in rooms which aren’t being used.
• Provide you with information on how much energy you are using, helping you to adjust or reduce the amount of energy used.
• Control the heating in your home, based on your routine. Many home automation systems are designed to remember your routine energy use and will remember this information and set your heating accordingly.
Smart thermostats offer a range of benefits
Smart thermostats offer a number of benefits, not least in terms of helping you to save money by controlling your central heating more efficiently. For example, if you are going to be late home from work you could delay the time your heating is set to switch on, or if you’re due to get home early, the heating can be turned on in advance.
Furthermore, you’re also likely to find that because a smart thermostat gives you with an accurate picture of how much energy you use at different times of day, they offer a useful way to work out the optimum central heating settings for your home, your family and your lifestyle.
