Thermostats are no longer just for controlling the temperature of your cooling and heating. They can now be utilized to create different schedules based on your lifestyle, can be monitored from your phone, and some can even be adjusted by the sound of your voice.
If you’ve been thinking about installing a smart thermostat in your home, here are the top reasons why you should.
Reduce Your Energy Bills
With a smart thermostat, there are several different settings you can take advantage of to help reduce your home’s energy usage and reduce your energy bills. Some popular features include:
Geofencing – The ability for your thermostat to increase the temperature in your home based on your phone’s location. This helps keep your home at a comfortable temperature while you’re home and on your way home, and cooler while the house is empty/
Adaptive Operation – Over time, your smart thermostat will learn your heating and cooling preferences and will be able to provide you with the ideal temperature all the time.
Vacation Mode – When you’re going to be away for an extended period of time, a smart thermostat will put itself into an energy-saving home and won’t be heating or cooling your home while you’re not there.
Most smart thermostats can connect with home assistants such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple HomePod. This allows you to adjust the temperature in your home, set a schedule, and change between heating and cooling simply by the sound of your voice.
Easy to Install
One of the biggest deterrents for homeowners to install smart thermostats in their homes is the installation process. But good news, smart thermostats are very easy to install, even for those who aren’t savvy with technology or home maintenance. Most of these thermostats, such as the Nest Learning Thermostat, can be installed in as little as 30 minutes.
With a smart thermostat, you are not only able to control the temperature in your home via your phone, but you can also get real-time push notifications if there are issues with your HVAC system. These notifications can range from changes in humidity levels, if the temperature is too hot or too cold, or if it’s time to replace your filters.
