For many Americans, summer is the best time of year to enjoy the warm weather by flocking to the beach, swimming pools, or taking vacations. However, the heat can be pretty brutal for all ages, especially when it comes to your home.
The following are four of the biggest summer woes:
- Coming home to a scorching desert. When you’ve been working all day, you look forward to relaxing in the comfort of your own home. But as soon as you enter through the front door, a wave of hot air greets and consumes you.
- Too hot to get a good night’s sleep. It can be difficult to obtain a comfortable and consistent sleeping temperature in the summer months. When it is either too hot or too cold, getting a decent sleep can be challenging.
- Leaving your pet at home. You wouldn’t leave your dog in the car on a hot day, so why would you leave him or her at home all day without air conditioning?
- Forgetting to turn off the AC. We all know that electricity usage can be costly. Sometimes it is easy to forget to turn off the AC before leaving for work, which can result in increased monthly energy bills.
Luckily, the solution to these issues is a programmable thermostat. There are even some models that enable access on your smartphone to ensure that the AC automatically turns off when the last person leaves the house and starts to pre-cool again when it detects the first individual who returns – saving you money while returning to a cool home. In addition, you can set smart schedules to make sure that your home’s temperature is perfect for you, your family, and your pets.
