Smart thermostats are all the rage as the latest, greatest innovation in home HVAC controls. If you currently have a more basic thermostat that’s working just fine, are there any good reasons why you should upgrade to smart technology? The answer is yes, because there’s a lot to love about a smart thermostat, including:
With old-fashioned thermostats, you have to check and make setting changes at the device. With the Wi-Fi connectivity built into a smart thermostat, all you have to do is download its app, and you can check on conditions in your home and adjust your comfort settings from anywhere there’s an internet connection.
User Friendly Interface
With a smart thermostat, you won’t have to squint to read small numbers, or waste time trying to figure out which buttons to press to make setting changes. These ultra-modern devices feature large, easy-to-read screens and a user-friendly interface that allows you to easily access to all your comfort system settings.
Convenient System Monitoring
An intelligent thermostat can make maintaining your HVAC system more convenient. Many models will alert you when filter changes are needed, and remind you about preventive maintenance. Some will even notify both you and your HVAC pro if a problem develops with your system. They can also monitor indoor and outdoor conditions, and manage system add-ons like a whole-house dehumidifier or air cleaner so you enjoy a healthier, more comfortable home.
Effortless Energy Savings
Are you on the fence about investing in a smart thermostat because you don’t want the hassle of learning how to program and tweak a complicated new device? The fact is, all you need to do is establish your basic comfort parameters like you would with a programmable thermostat. A smart model then starts learning your habits, and adjusts its programming automatically for optimal energy savings. Plus, it can give you real-time access to your energy use data, so you can keep track of your household consumption and savings.
