Tired of the high cost to keep your house cool in the summer and warm in the winter, especially when you’re away much of the time? Well, now you can control your home’s thermostat by simply using your smartphone or computer, regardless of where you are. Some of the new high-tech thermostats can even alert you via your smartphone whenever your filter needs changing! How’s that for high-tech! Two good options to replace your old thermostat with one of these money-saving newer models are The Nest Learning Thermostat which senses when you’re away and then adjusts your AC or heat to an energy-saving temperature while you’re gone (approximately $250) and The Ecobee SmartSi which allows you to control your thermostat from anywhere you are located by simply using your phone or the internet (approximately $205). Take advantage of this new technology to help you save money over time, which will definitely pay off in dividends in the long run!
