Four ways thermostats can save you on electrical costs

Four ways thermostats can save you on electrical costs

Now that winter time seems like it is in our rear view mirror, this is a great time to think about how much you spent on your energy bills this winter. If you had sticker shock every time you opened up your energy bill, this is a great time to take advantage of the cost savings that you can find when you trust the Roanoke thermostat experts at Southern Trust Home Services to install new thermostats in your home.

Our team knows the cost savings you will experience when you maximize the control and comfort of your home HVAC system with a digital thermostat. The four ways that thermostats can save you on electrical costs include:


Having a digital thermostat installed can help you better manage the use of your home HVAC system. Our digital thermostats can be set to the right temperature when you leave to go to work and the system can turn your house cooler (and warmer in the fall and winter) before you arrive home to help keep your system from running when it isn’t needed. You can also save up to 30 percent on your energy bills!

Energy savings

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, up to $10 billion a year is wasted on what is called “vampire energy”, which comes from standby modes for home heating systems. Having a digital thermostat can minimize this standby energy loss, saving you on your energy bills and energy consumption.

Extending the life of your existing HVAC system

You can extend the life of your existing HVAC system by minimizing the time that your system has to work on cooling or heating your home. A digital thermostat can help reduce the amount of time that your system has to be operating, making it more efficient.


In the same way that you can control your digital thermostat by programming the times that it will come on, newer models can be conveniently controlled by smartphone apps as well. A smart home design can help offer additional convenience for you and your family to save on energy costs and to ensure that your home is the right temperature as soon as you get home!
