Optimize Your Smart Thermostat for Summer Savings

Are you ready to save big during the summer as an Intelligent Octopus user? It all comes down to how you set your thermostat. Don't worry, it's super easy, and you'll never have to sacrifice your comfort.

Follow these quick and easy steps to prepare for the summer ahead and maximize your energy savings.

Set your thermostat to your ideal comfort level

Pick the temperature where you feel most comfortable and let your smart thermostat do the rest. With extreme temperatures in the summer, it's important to prioritize your comfort. There's no need to set your thermostat to extreme temperatures to enjoy savings.

Let us take it from here

Rest assured that your thermostat will only be adjusted when the grid is stressed. We'll only adjust your thermostat by three degrees from your set point, and conservation events only occur in 30-minute increments.

Your comfort comes first

While savings are the goal, we always prioritize your comfort. Once a conservation event has ended, we won't make any adjustments for at least 15 minutes. This allows your home to reset and ensures your comfort.

That's all you need to start enjoying the savings you want while staying cool and comfortable this summer. If you're eager to learn more about Intelligent Octopus and how it can help you optimize your energy usage, visit our FAQ page.
