Are you in the market for a new thermostat? The available technology may have advanced since the last time you purchased one. Today, you have a wide variety of smart thermostat options to choose from. Never used a smart thermostat option? Here’s why it might be the right choice for your home:
These days, we’re seeing smart technology used in more and more places. Smart thermostats are a great way to bring your HVAC systems into the 21st century with more convenience and remote access. But what do they offer your home?
Everyone loves to save money on their heating and cooling bills, and a smart thermostat can help. Smart thermostats allow you to set schedules and zones so that you only use the amount of heating and cooling you need only when you need it. If you forget to set a program, you can even access your thermostat from your phone and turn the unit up or down from work, vacation, or anywhere else. Interested in lowering your carbon footprint? Your smart thermostat also tracks your energy usage so you can look for ways to lower it over time.
The most convenient thing about a smart thermostat is that you can control it from your smartphone, wherever you are, at any time. You can adjust the temperature from across the country or even across the world. You can turn the heating down at night and then turn it back up in the morning before you even get out of bed. Turn your temperature up on a summer day before you leave for work and turn it back down on your way home. No longer do you have to hope that your thermostat is on the right setting or ask someone to adjust it for you. Now you can do that all with the touch of a button on an app.
Programmable thermostats have been around for a while. In fact, one of the concerns when it came to smart thermostats was that it would make programming too complicated. But actually, the opposite has shown itself to be true. Not only is it easy to schedule your HVAC usage, but your smart thermostat detects the activity within the home so that it can adjust the heating or cooling accordingly. It can even take into account changes in seasons. Soon, you won’t even think about programming your thermostat.
