Save Energy with a Smart Thermostat this Season

Save Energy with a Smart Thermostat this Season

It probably comes as no surprise that heating and cooling your home accounts for the majority of its energy use - and expense. In fact, the average household spends about half of its energy bill on heating and cooling. And as we approach the cold winter months, you’ll be relying on that heating system more and more to stay warm.

Managing your heating costs this winter is easier with a smart thermostat. With different control mechanisms, room specific settings and adaptable timers, you can take control of the amount of energy you’re using. Over time, modifying how your energy is being used can help you reduce consumption.

These smart devices, which interact with your heating system through an app on your mobile device, are convenient, energy-efficient, easy to use and cost-effective. In fact, smart thermostats can help you save an average of 10 percent on your utility bills. 

The transition to a smart thermostat, is pretty simple to set up yourself. Or, sign up for a FREE Quick Home Energy Checkup for SJG customers and we’ll install one eligible Smart Thermostat with proof of purchase through the SJG Marketplace. And for added convenience, over time, some models can predict your preferred settings which can more accurately control the climate and enhance energize efficiency. Once the setup is complete, it requires little maintenance, which is a win/win overall.

Quick tip: Make sure your smart thermostat is unobstructed by doors, bookshelves or other objects AND within range of your home’s Wi-Fi source in order to work properly.
