How do smart thermostats save you money?
You are no doubt turning up your thermostat as the cold snap has well and truly kicked in. Wouldn’t it be great if you had an intelligent thermostat that could control temperature for you, works with an app that allows you to set a monthly energy budget, and looks good too?
There are a range of new clever thermostats, from Google’s Nest, to German company’s tado, Netatmo and more. But I think I found a thermostat that offers the same functionality, but isn’t as expensive as the rivals, since it’s at least £50 cheaper!
Let’s look at their flagship product – the momit Home Thermostat has an attractive display which provides thermal information about your home. The learning thermostat detects when people are at home, learns from your habits and estimates consumption. momit Home Thermostat can control both your boiler and underfloor heating.
How does it save you money?
Knowing when the heating goes on and taking the weather and outside temperature into consideration, momit Home Thermostat is able to estimate energy costs in the current month and set limits for the upcoming month.
Through the momit Home Thermostat App’s My Budget function, consumers can optimise temperature in order to reduce costs without sacrificing comfort. The unique app function allows users to set a heating budget and limits, saving money on energy bills.
For new users, the momit Home Thermostat Starter Kit seems ideal which includes two main devices: one thermostat and one gateway (internet bridge plugged to your router that gives internet access to the thermostat).
