Keeping your home cool enough while reducing energy bills can be challenging, especially during Eastern North Carolina’s hot summer months. With mobile cooling technology, you can easily adjust your home’s thermostat settings even if you’re not at home. Find out more about these convenient cooling options, which you can use on your smartphone or tablet.

Smartphone and Tablet Apps

With smartphone and tablet apps, you can control the settings on your smart thermostat. Downloading these apps onto your mobile device allows you to raise or lower the temperature setting while you’re at home and when you’re out. This capability allows you to save money on the cost of cooling your home during the summer. For example, you can raise the temperature before leaving home for the day, then use your app to lower it when you’re on your way home. Even a small change to the temperature setting can help reduce your energy bills.

Smart Features

With apps and smart thermostats, you don’t necessarily have to worry about controlling the temperature setting in your home or remembering to adjust it at certain times. Smart thermostats learn your household’s daily habits to enable cooling that’s more efficient. Keep in mind that with an app, you can override your smart thermostat’s settings if your home is too cool or too warm.

Smart Speakers

Some smart thermostats can be paired with a smart speaker for more-convenient control over your temperature settings. With this pairing, you can use voice commands from anywhere in your house to make adjustments. This type of cooling technology is handy if you don’t have your phone or tablet with you and you would like to make your home cooler.
