- Incorporate a Smart Thermostat into your home
You may be wondering, what makes a thermostat smart? Our ENERGY STAR certified Smart Thermostat helps keep your home at a comfortable temperature while also providing the best savings for you and your family! It’s sleek design and user-friendly app helps you adjust your thermostat from anywhere, set up geo-fencing to automatically kick-on the AC as soon as you get home or turn off as soon as you leave, and keep track of your temperature through data measurement. Now that’s smart!
- Maintain the upkeep of you air conditioning system
Keeping track of the quality and life span of your air conditioning system may seem cumbersome, but ensuring that your air conditioning is clean can help provide cooler and fresher air. Routinely check that your vents are blowing air and the main unit (usually in the basement) is working properly to ensure the greatest bang for your buck in terms of energy management!
- Keep doors closed to maintain the cold air inside your home
With the kids running in and out of the house, make sure to let your family know to be mindful of keeping the door shut so that cold air stays inside of your home and doesn’t help cool your neighbor’s home instead.
