Wi-fi sensors. Advanced algorithms. Wi-fi technology. Sensors. There’s a lot that has happened to the humble thermostat in a world where technology is evolving virtually everything in its sight and path. If you’re still operating with a classical thermostat, here are 6 ways you will benefit by upgrading to a smart thermostat for your home’s heating and cooling system.
Set your thermostat for energy savings
With a smart thermostat, you can not only control your home’s heating but also your home’s annual energy expenses. A smart thermostat allows you to record and observe your average energy usage pattern and understand the costs resulting from this pattern. You can use this analysis to adjust your heating (or cooling) to a performance level that will reduce your energy consumption and expense. According to Google Nest, installing an HVAC system with a smart thermostat will enable you to save 10-12% on heating costs and 15% on cooling costs.
Heat your home remotely
With a high-efficiency HVAC system, you will have the freedom to set your home’s temperature from anywhere. This is an advantage when you are at work and want your interior spaces to have the right temperature before you get home. You can also control your thermostat while you’re holidaying – through your thermostat app, and maintain the minimum heating or cooling necessary to keep your home and its assets in good condition.
Regulates temperature as per the requirement
A smart thermostat comes with a motion detector that enables it to ‘learn’ when you’re home and when you’re not. Your thermostat will then use this data to set a heating or cooling schedule based on your home’s occupancy through the day. Another advantage is the ability of the thermostat to monitor seasonal variations in temperature and make changes in its settings automatically.
Find an easier interface
Unlike its predecessors, smart thermostats make it easy for you to not only view and read the temperature but also operate the controls. In fact, operating your thermostat will become as easy as using your smartphone. Contact your local HVAC Havertown PA company or HVAC maintenance service to know more about the convenience of a smart thermostat.
Link up with other home appliances
A smart generation thermostat comes with the provision to link with your home’s other appliances. For example, you can operate your air purifier with your smart thermostat if both operate on compatible systems.
Use voice commands
You don’t need to walk over to your thermostat or even pick up your mobile to set your home’s heating or cooling. If you’re familiar with the concept of voice assistants like Alexa, all you need to do is speak. Your smart thermostat will respond willingly and make your home comfortable.
Switching from a conventional to smart thermostat is a decision that will improve both your home’s comfort environment as well as your energy efficiency during the heating and cooling seasons.
