Why You Should Install a Smart Thermostat
July 23rd, 2020 by cverdone
Smart thermostats are changing the way people enjoy comfort in their homes. Just like other types of technology, smart thermostats are controlled via a mobile device. This means that your smartphone, tablet, or smart speaker can control your thermostat. Not only are these convenient to control but they provide many benefits to homeowners.
Preset Time Settings
One of the best features of smart thermostats is they can be preset to turn up or down to a specified temperature at a specific time. For example, in the summertime, you don’t need to have the air conditioner running all day when no one is home. That is simply a waste of energy that will cost you money. Instead, you can preset your thermostat to turn down to a desired temperature 30 minutes before you’ll arrive home. You can even present your thermostat based on the days of the week.
Reduced Energy Costs
A smart thermostat allows you to be more accurate with your energy needs for the temperature in your home. When you can program your thermostat to be on only when you need it, you can save yourself a bundle in not having to run the system when you don’t. Many smart thermostats even come with recommendations based on your habits for how you can save more energy and, in turn, electricity costs from month to month.
The biggest advantage of smart thermostats is that they can be accessed from anywhere you have an internet connection. This is so convenient for times when plans change. You may decide to come home from work early and want the air conditioner on. Or, you may decide to go out to dinner and want to hold off turning the temperature down until you’re closer to arriving home. Simply one touch of your smart thermostat control and you can change the temperature settings in your home.
Better Track Your Energy Usage
Smart thermostats provide you with data about your energy usage. This allows you to see where most of your energy costs are coming from and can provide you with a clear idea of how you’re going to reduce that usage. Many smart thermostats will provide you with convenient graphs that can allow you to analyze your energy usage at the push of a button.
