In the modern era, air conditioning and heating units have become essential components of buildings and homes in the United States and across the world. They have helped us remain comfortable regardless of the local climate. From the tropical weather of South Florida to the frigid conditions of the Mid West during the winter, heating and air conditioning units allow us to escape the elements in the harshest of conditions. Unfortunately, maintaining a comfortable temperature in your home or building can come at a high price. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), air conditioners consume roughly 5% of all electricity produced in the US, at a cost of more than $11 billion to homeowners.
Smart thermostats, sometimes known as programmable thermostats, offer substantial energy costs savings for buildings, hotels and homeowners. Smart thermostats work by allowing users to pre-set temperatures based on daily routines, or even by learning the habits of people within the building. For example, if you leave home in the morning to commute to work, and return in the evenings, you can set a smart thermostat to power down during the hours you are away, and adjust to a comfortable temperature prior to when you usually return home.
Smart Thermostats for Hotels
Homeowners are not the only people that can benefit by using smart thermostats. The hotel industry have begun to utilize smart thermostats in order to drastically reduce their energy bills. By installing smart thermostats in hotel rooms, the hotel is able to control the temperature of every room in the building on an individual basis. Many of the smart thermostats for hotels are able to determine whether a room is occupied and power down when the hotel room is not in use.
In the past, it was common for hotel guests to leave the air conditioning unit in their room running so that they could enjoy a nice, cool welcome when they returned. While this was great for the guest, it came at a tremendous cost for the hotel. Smart thermostats have solved this problem by allowing guests to enjoy the comfort of a cool room when they return, while limiting energy use when the hotel is unoccupied. Hotels are able to save thousands of dollars annually on their energy bill when smart thermostats are installed in their units.
