Outsmart Cold & Costly Alaskan Winters – with a Smart Thermostat

For homeowners in Anchorage, Wasilla, and Palmer, smart thermostats usually pay for themselves through energy savings and various other benefits. They also offer amazing convenience and environmental benefits. Here are a few reasons why upgrading to a smart thermostat is a smart way for you and your pocketbook to get through winter.

Energy Savings: Smart thermostats allow for more precise control over your heating and cooling systems. They can automatically adjust the temperature based on your schedule, occupancy, and weather conditions. By optimizing energy usage, you’re likely to enjoy significant reductions in your heating bills.

Remote Control: Smart thermostats enable you to adjust your home’s temperature remotely via smartphone apps. This means you can avoid heating an empty home, saving energy and money.

Geofencing: Some smart thermostats have geofencing, which detects when you leave or return home and adjust the temperature accordingly. This feature ensures you’re not wasting energy when you’re away.

Learning Algorithms: Many smart thermostats have learning capabilities. They adapt to your temperature preferences and schedule, optimizing settings for comfort and energy efficiency over time.

Zoning: Some smart thermostats support zoning, allowing you to control the temperature in different areas or rooms independently. This can prevent over-heating of unused spaces.

Weather Integration: Smart thermostats can access weather forecasts and adjust settings based on current weather conditions. For example, if it’s an unusually warm day, the thermostat may reduce heating to save energy. On the flip side, if we get a cold front coming from the north, it can increase the temperature and your comfort level.

Energy Rebates: There may be current rebates and incentives for installing smart thermostats, helping to offset the purchase cost, so check with your utility and the Alaska Energy Rebate program.  

Long-Term Maintenance Savings: Smart thermostats often provide alerts and notifications for filter changes and HVAC system maintenance. This can extend the life of your HVAC system and prevent costly breakdowns.

Energy Usage Data: Smart thermostats provide data on your energy usage and the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems. This information can help you make informed decisions about how to reduce energy consumption and lower your utility bills.

Reduced Carbon Footprint: By optimizing energy usage, smart thermostats contribute to environmental conservation, which is becoming increasingly important to many homeowners.

Convenience and Comfort: Smart thermostats enhance your comfort and convenience by maintaining a consistent temperature and allowing you to easily adjust settings. This improved comfort can lead to a higher quality of life.
