Did you know you can save money on your Energy Bill? Check out how the LUX® CS1 Smart Thermostat can help you obtain those goals! This post is sponsored by Johnson Controls, however all opinions are 100% my own!
For the last two years, we’ve lived in our house without air conditioning. We have forced air heat, but have never had an air conditioner unit installed. That isn’t totally abnormal here in Wisconsin, but for this Texas girl, I’m not a fan of sweating in my own house. So, while the summers are short and generally not that hot, the humidity and uncomfortable-ness of not having an air conditioner finally got to us! In addition our furnace was about 30 years old, so we just replaced EVERYTHING. So let’s talk about how to Save on Your Energy Bill with the new, affordable LUX CS1 Smart Thermostat!
Save on Your Energy Bill
Install a Smart Thermostat
Thermostats have come a long way in recent years. The new LUX CS1 Smart Thermostat – manufactured by Johnson Controls – offers multiple energy savings features that keep your house comfortable and is retailed at just $99! Keep reading for all the ways a simple thermostat switch can save you money!
Set up a Schedule to Save on Your Energy Bill
Once installed, and paired with the LUX app (more on that below) your new LUX CS1 Smart Thermostat can keep a schedule that allows your system to be automated depending on your lifestyle. Changing the temperature even just a little can take some of the workload off your system and save you money. The LUX CS1 Smart Thermostat even has a feature called Home and Away Aware™ that monitors occupancy and automatically makes energy-efficient adjustments.
Utilize the LUX App
The LUX CS1 Smart Thermostat can be paired with the LUX app for monitoring your energy needs. In addition to a simple operating system of the thermostat, the app provides learning and adaptive smart tips for continuous improvement. You can also monitor and adjust the thermostat’s temperature and settings from anywhere for 24/7comfort, control and peace-of-mind.
If you have multiple properties (perhaps an Airbnb) you can even manage up to 10 thermostats within the app.
Replace Filters When Needed
The LUX app alerts you for filter replacement. If you aren’t regularly changing your filters, here’s a few reasons why it’s not only provides cleaner air but also helps decrease your energy costs. With a dirty filter, the blower fan has to work harder to push air. There’s a higher risk your unit can overheat or freeze up. When air doesn’t circulate properly, particles can settle in the duct work putting a drain on your system with unfortunate pollutants in your air.
Replace Old Furnace/Air Conditioner
Typically, if you are running an older unit, it’s costing you quite a bit to do so. Nowa-days, furnaces and air conditions run much more efficiently. So, if you are on the fence about buying a new unit (because it will eventually need to be done anyways), take the time to do some research. You could save yourself hundreds over the next year.
