Why You Should Invest in a Smart Thermostat

January 5, 2020

The trend is green. Reduce your footprint. Smart thermostats are becoming increasingly popular. The majority of businesses are either installing smart thermostats when their brick and mortar locations go up, or they are converting their existing thermostats to a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats are more than just a thermostat that can be programmed.

1. Bring Your Electric Cost Down

You can program your smart thermostat to the ideal temperatures based on what time of the day it is or what day of the week. You can bring your air temperatures down when the hot summer heat hits or you can heat it up according to when you will be out of the home. There’s no need to keep your HVAC system whirring when you’re not there. You will see the benefits in your first energy bill.

The best feature that makes a smart thermostat better than a programmable thermostat is that a smart thermostat will study your patterns and will learn your heating and cooling habits, and you eventually won’t have to program it anymore. This brainy thermostat will even tell you how to create a more energy-efficient program. This means more change in your pockets!

2. Remote Programmability

You can connect your smart thermostat to an app on your phone which will enable you to see how hot or cold it is in your home and to adjust the thermostat accordingly when you are on your way home or when a family member is on the way.

3. Data Delivered

With a smart thermostat, you can see all of your energy statistics on the app. You can:

  • See household temp
  • Adjust temp
  • See how much energy is being used currently
  • See how much money you are saving

4. Zone Your Home

If one part of your home is hotter than the rest of the house you may be over-exerting your HVAC system. There are thermostats on the market that have motion sensors on them. The sensors should be placed in rooms that are occupied most during the day and in the bedrooms at night.

5. Get the Weather Report

The latest versions of smart thermostats that are on the market can track the weather report and can adjust the temp in your home remotely.

Everything is smart now. You will save a tremendous amount of money and decrease your footprint.
