There are a number of simple, practical ways to make your home eco-friendly, save energy and reduce utility bills.
A smart thermostat
is a great way to manage your HVAC system more efficiently and to conserve energy. Configure schedules to automate when to switch your system on or off. Save as much as 10% a year on heating and cooling simply by turning your thermostat back 7°-10°F for 8 hours a day from the normal settings. Save energy easily in the winter by setting the smart thermostat to 68°F while you're awake and setting it lower while you're asleep or away from home.
A big energy saver in the summer months is to switch off your HVAC when you are not at home. Typically cooling occurs quicker than heating and switching the AC on 30 minutes before you get home will have the temperature at a comfortable level for your arrival. In addition to saving energy, there are many benefits to being able to remotely control and monitor your HVAC system remotely via the TrickleStar® App
or TrickleStar® Portal
. Optimize your comfort and maximize savings.
