If your heating and cooling costs are going up each month or taking up too much of your budget, now is a great time to invest in a smart thermostat and Nexia. These two intelligent devices could improve your home’ comfort and save you money at the same time. Here are some tips on how installing these two systems could benefit your Las Cruces, New Mexico home.
What Nexia Is
Nexia is a home automation system that works with your Wi-Fi. As you make upgrades to other smart systems in your home, it controls them based on the settings you enter on its touchscreen or the app on your smartphone. It can give the appearance that you’re at home by opening and closing your blinds to block the sun’s heat and lock or unlock doors for a housekeeper or dog sitter. It can also adjust your home’s temperature when you’re away, allowing you to save money on heating and cooling costs.
Pairing Home Automation With a Smart Thermostat
Smart thermostats learn your schedule. They make automatic adjustments to your home’s temperature in order to lower heating and cooling costs. Their algorithms get software updates on a regular basis, so they continue to optimize energy efficiency and comfort. By increasing the temperature in the summertime when you’re away or asleep and decreasing it in the wintertime, these intelligent thermostats could lower your monthly energy bills, explains Energy Star.

We can help you choose heating and cooling equipment, thermostats and other smart home products that are compatible with home automation systems.
