Why You Need a Smart Thermostat
Posted on May 8th, 2017
Smart technology is all around us — so it might not come as a surprise that this same technology can enhance your HVAC system.
What is a “Smart Thermostat”?
Smart thermostats allow you to change your thermostat settings — even when you’re not home. You can change them from your smartphone, computer, tablet, or even using your voice with a device like Amazon Echo. Many also allow you to view your usage history and show you just when your HVAC system is kicking on, and how often it is on. Lastly, one of the best features that smart thermostats have to offer is that they can “learn” your habits and adjust the settings accordingly. For example, if you turn down the A/C before bed each night, the smart thermostat will eventually automatically adjust the A/C before you go to bed.
Smart Thermostat Benefits:
- Improve Home Comfort – Keep your home a comfortable temperature no matter what time of day it is. Smart thermostats also learn your habits, meaning that your home will stay comfortable even if you forget to turn it down or up before you go to bed or leave for the day.
- Adjust the Temperature On-The-Go – You can adjust your home temperature no matter where you are. Turn on your air conditioning system before you leave work for the day so that your home is comfortable when you arrive. Or if you’re leaving for vacation, you can turn down your thermostat while you’re away!
- Save Money – Since smart thermostats learn your habits and allow you to adjust your home’s temperature settings no matter where you are, you can use less energy throughout the day. Save energy when you’re not home — and keep your home comfortable when you are. The added flexibility can lead to significant energy savings.
