Tired of fighting over the thermostat in your house? Wish it wasn’t too hot or too cold at the wrong times? Want to save money on your energy costs? While manual thermostats were the standard for decades until the development of programmable models, a new smart thermostat takes temperature control to the next level and could be the solution you’ve been looking for. We’ll look at the benefits of installing one below so you can decide if this is the right option for you.
3 Benefits of a New Smart Thermostat
Smart thermostats consist of three elements: the thermostat control, a controller directly attached to the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) unit, and an app downloaded to your phone or computer. Additional sensors can be installed throughout your home so it can learn your family’s schedule. Given these integrated components, installation is best left to your local air conditioning experts.
While many homes have programmable thermostats, research indicates most homeowners do not actually take advantage of this feature. A smart thermostat will learn on its own without needing direct human input. Sensors detect when family members first wake up in the morning as well as go to bed at night and adjust the temperature appropriately.
Plus, an adaptive learning thermostat will know when you’re likely to leave and arrive home each day. This means you don’t have to worry you’ve accidentally left the thermostat set too high or low all day while your house was empty.
2. Remote Control
You can easily receive information from your smart thermostat on your phone as well as control it remotely. Coming home early? You can make sure your house is heated or cooled the way you want it when you arrive. This is even more useful when you go on or return from a vacation.
You can also receive alerts if temperatures go outside of ranges you’ve established or if the power goes out at your house. This also makes a smart thermostat good for vacation homes to make sure temperatures don’t spike too high or drop low enough to freeze pipes.
3. Energy Savings
A smart thermostat allows you to see real-time energy consumption. While this won’t by itself save you money, you’ll be able to see how and when you’re using the most energy. This will also help identify a low-performing HVAC system needing maintenance as higher energy usage to produce the same cooling or heating power indicates a problem.
