When it comes to upgrading your HVAC system, you’ll have a ton of
choices. You could invest in replacing your existing system with an energy-efficient
modern setup that will save you a ton of money on your energy bills while
also keeping you comfortable. You could also invest in improving your
air quality with a different and more durable type of filter. However,
when it comes to upgrades that have a huge bang-for-buck factor, there
is perhaps no better choice than installing a smart thermostat.
Smart thermostats are thermostats that are packed with technology and programming
that allow them to better-manage your heating and cooling system as well
as increase your comfort and convenience in your own home. In the past,
thermostats used to be simple devices that turned on and off according
to the temperature in your home. However, today’s models are far
more sophisticated, with many having the ability to adjust themselves
and even make decisions that will both increase your comfort and save
Here are three of the most common ways that a smart thermostat can benefit
When you consider that roughly half of the energy that an American household
uses per year goes to heating and cooling costs, you’d be hard-pressed
to find a better place to find a better place to start improving your
energy consumption. Smart thermostats can make just about any heating
and cooling system more efficient by turning the system on when you need
it, off when you don’t, and then adjusting to maintain that temperature,
all while using less energy.
Some smart thermostats even have the ability to
learn your comfort and climate preferences and then precisely adjust your system
in order to maintain these goals without so much as a single stroke of
input from you. All of this can lead to lower electric bills and a more
comfortable home: a true win-win!
Are you sick of realizing you forgot to shut off the air conditioner before
leaving for the office? What about forgetting to turn on the heater before
going to bed? Now, thanks to the power of smart thermostats, you don’t
have to stress about it! Most smart thermostat options are equipped with
Wi-Fi technology which allows them to connect to your home’s network
and even access the internet. These thermostats also usually have a compatible
smartphone or tablet app which gives you the ability to turn your system
on or off, change the temperature, and even check on maintenance status
updates or receive energy usage readouts—from anywhere in the world!
When your smart thermostat is also connected to the internet, you open
up a whole world of possibilities. Not only can your manufacturer constantly
update it with the latest in software that further increases your energy
efficiency, but it can even fetch information regarding factors like the
weather outside. Having this information allows your system to adjust
itself even more precisely, turning on or shutting off at more appropriate
times to make sure the climate is just right and you save the greatest
amount of energy!
