Are you in need of a new thermostat? Not sure if you should buy a programmable one or upgrade to a smart thermostat?
Did you know that 89% of respondents to a home heating survey said they don’t set their programmable thermostat with weekday or weekend programs? That represents a lot of wasted functionality and frivolous heating and cooling.
Smart thermostats are just built different. Let’s learn how they can save you money and create the right temperature for every room in your house.
Using your home’s Wi-Fi, a smart thermostat lets you control the heating and air conditioning with your smartphone, tablet, or favorite voice assistant. It learns from your choices and activities and automatically schedules the heating or cooling for the appropriate times of day. There is no need for manual programming.
Download the smart thermostat’s app to your phone or tablet and you are ready to begin the easy setup. You can also use a voice assistant like Apple’s Siri or Amazon’s Alexa to help you. The result is you can control your new thermostat from anywhere, any way you like.
A smart thermostat learns with your habits. As your schedule and activities change, your thermostat’s programming automatically changes too.
Another great feature is the geo-locations functionality. Using the GPS feature on your phone, the thermostat will turn down your heating and AC when you leave the house for work or shopping and switch it on when you return. If you need to leave early or come home late, you are not wasting heating or returning to a cold house.
Because a smart thermostat adjusts to meet your actual heating needs, you will save money. One report found you could save between $100 and $150 a year.
Monitoring alerts show you potential problems within your heating and cooling system so you can take care of them quickly. Maintenance alerts help you get the most from your HVAC service and keep your system running at optimal performance.
Helpful reports show you how much energy you are using and the health of your system. If you want to reduce your energy consumption, or think you need an AC service, you can clearly see what actions you need to take.
An advantage of smart thermostats is their ability to connect with other thermostats in the house. This network provides greater control over specific areas. For example, you can teach your thermostat upstairs to remain cool in the morning, while your downstairs thermostat heats the kitchen.
