When you rent out your Surf City, North Carolina, vacation home during the summer months, you have countless details to juggle. Why not streamline your HVAC system and give yourself one less thing to worry about? Read on to find out why a smart thermostat is essential for your vacation home.

Set a Seasonal Cooling Schedule

A manual thermostat requires you to make temperature adjustments by hand. But with a smart thermostat, you can set it and forget it.

At the beginning of the summer season, set the device to a comfortable daytime temperature. Then program the thermostat 8 to 10 degrees higher overnight. The Gideon Heating & Air Conditioning team recommends this strategy for saving energy without compromising the comfort of your guests.

Adjust the Temperature for Your Guests

You want to give your guests a great first impression of your vacation home. A pleasantly cool interior helps, especially on a hot summer day.

With a smart thermostat, you can turn down the temperature a few degrees from your smartphone. Simply link your thermostat to your vacation home’s Wi-Fi network, and log into the connected HVAC app from anywhere in Surf City or beyond.

Monitor HVAC Problems
