Is Your Home’s Thermostat Smart Enough?
A programmable thermostat in your Crawfordville, Florida, home is better than a thermostat you have to manually change, but programmable thermostats only offer a few benefits and are old technology compared to the smart models available. To truly benefit from thermostat technology, you need a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats learn your schedule, help you save money on energy bills, and connect to your smartphone.
People love checking their thermostats via an app. When your schedule changes, adjusting the temperature in your home is easily accessible through the app. When you’re on vacation, you able to see what’s going on with your HVAC system. Programmable thermostats sometimes have vacation settings, but that’s not as convenient as using an app.
Energy Usage Analysis
A smart thermostat will let you know how much energy you’re using with your current energy settings. In many cases, the smart thermostat (which can learn your schedule with minimal effort on your part) helps you achieve more comfort in your home overall by adapting to your schedule. It’s more convenient to let the thermostat do the work so you don’t have to focus on programing it. Some smart thermostats will make small adjustments to your home’s existing program if they can save a little more energy that way.
Home Comfort and IAQ Stats
Another significant way the smart thermostats differ from their programmable counterparts is in the other stats they offer. The best smart thermostats monitor the humidity in your indoor air, let you know the temperature outside, and remind you when it’s time to change your air filters.
