REASONS TO HAVE A SMART THERMOSTAT
Over the years things have become much more “smart” when it comes to technology. We have smart phones, smart speakers, smart lights, vacuums, and now smart thermostats. Smart thermostat technology maximizes the efficiency of you heating and cooling system. Here are five good reasons you should invest in one:
- Instant access:
When you have a smart thermostat you could have instance access from anywhere, as long as your home is set up with Wi-Fi. You can access your thermostat from a smart device such as smart phone, tablet, laptop, or computer. This is helpful when you are coming home on a hot summer day and you want your home to be a little cooler. Another good advantage of instant access is if you are away from home and the outside temps drop more than expected and you are nervous your pipes may freeze, you can always put the heat to a higher temperature.
- Automatic tuning:
Using your smart thermostat will help with tuning since it will record and track daily usages. When it records it will start to automatically learn what temperatures you like during the day or night without you having to change it back and forth throughout the day.
- Reporting and alerting:
A smart thermostat will alert if the temperature gets too low or too high so you can take care of the problem. The smart thermostat will send you warnings when too much energy is being used. Also, if there is a system failure you will be alerted as well. With the smart thermostat you will never need to remember to change your filters since it will help remind you.
- Cost savings:
Your smart thermostat will save money by keeping the temperature as low as possible for as long as possible. When you enter your desired temperature and an indication of your daily schedule the thermostat ensures the room is to your comfort level, and this will help save as much energy as possible. Smart thermostats are much easier to use than your regular programmable thermostat, which means you will use it more often and adjust it as your schedule changes.
- Easy installations:
You may be wondering how hard it is to install a smart thermostat, in fact it’s the complete opposite! The hardest part of the install is to make sure your system is compatible along with the wiring. The installation will take between 20 and 30 minutes.
