Programming the thermostat for savings


Have you heard of those new productivity apps that you install on your phone? They track your screen time, app usage, and how often you randomly pick up your phone throughout the day just to see if there’s anything new on the home screen.

  • I think that these apps are extremely powerful and provide a lot of useful information about our modern ways of living.

I also think that a similar app needs to be developed for our indoor air temperature appliances. In the same way that to these apps encourage people to be more independent from their cell phones, an HVAC application could discourage people from abusing their central heating and cooling systems throughout the day. If you’re anything like me, you might be a bit obsessed with your indoor comfort. When I’m at home, I’m obsessed with being comfortable in my own space. I want ideal indoor air temperature conditions. Often times, rather than trying to moderate my own temperature with clothing changes or blankets, I will simply meander down the hallway and mess with my thermostat settings. I find that I do this so many times throughout the day, my poor central heating and cooling system gets put through its paces. It’s a terrible habit, and it contributes to much higher energy bills each month, but I’m not sure how to be more mindful of my habitual thermostat checking. That’s why, I’d appreciate if they could simply come up with an app that controlled your smart thermostat accessibility. Lock me out of my indoor air temperature control, and do me a favor.
