“The vast majority of potential savings can be achieved by simply creating a schedule. To do that, an expensive smart thermostat is not necessary. All you really need is a programmable thermostat.
However, cost is not the only consideration. Ultimately, any savings should not come at the expense of comfort or convenience. I want my home to save and be comfortable, but I don’t want to worry about constantly adjusting my thermostat.
A smart thermostat uses a combination of scheduling, geofencing, and motion sensing to know when to turn the heat up or down.
A smart thermostat isn’t some mystical device that changes the laws of physics in order to use less energy. The only way to spend less is to heat or cool less.
The smart part is deciding when to do it, so you don’t notice.”

Creating a schedule to program into your smart thermostat is perhaps the best way to save money while not sacrificing comfort. Consider how often you are away from home or sleeping. Having the temperature adjust even a few degrees during the “down” times is an excellent way to save money on energy costs. If you’re on vacation, having remote access to your smart thermostat will also allow you to make adjustments based on the current weather. Over time, these savings will add up which means more money in your pocket!
