Understanding Smart Thermostats October 18, 2021 In the UK, the government has been working very hard to place certain targets in place to reduce our carbon footprints but as individuals, there are a few things that Castle Heating Kent can do to help. Something you can easily do is by simply changing your thermostat to a smart thermostat, but how? How smart thermostats can help reduce carbon emissions! Central heating and hot water are known to have a negative impact on the environment and can emit a significant amount of carbon, especially if your boiler is old or inefficient. As a result, starting to consider your contribution to the problem may appear to be a challenging task. However, how you manage your energy consumption can have a significant impact. We should all strive to live as efficiently as possible in terms of time, money, and energy and you will be glad to know that all three of these factors can be controlled by a smart thermostat. Installing a smart thermostat can help you save up on money and energy due to its adaptive learning schedule. Many thermostats such as Nest and Hive have the advantage of learning your routine when you are not at home, therefore, turning the heating off when you do not need it. What's more is that you have the option to download the app on a device so you are able to further control the heating in your home, thus helping you save more on your energy bills! All the information is stored on the app, making it easier for you to revisit to check through your usage. Smart thermostats have become increasingly popular over the years and have contributed a huge step forward towards energy saving.
