4 Benefits of Installing a Smart Thermostat in Your Home

Innovation continues to be ever changing in the world of heating and air. From upgrades in thermostat technology to smart controls that learn your temperature preferences, we’ve seen a number of changes over the last 10 years that are reshaping the way we use and preserve energy in our homes. Here are a few reasons to switch to a smart thermostat.

It Learns Your Temperature Preferences

Ten years ago, programmable thermostats were the latest trend, but with advances in technology, smart thermostats will a better choice for your home. For example, a smart thermostat learns your temperature habits over time and adjusts accordingly, while a programmable thermostat only allows you to schedule temperature changes for specific days and times. For hot and cold natured people alike, a smart thermostat will begin to automatically change your temperature over time as it learns your daily habits and preferences, which will keep extra cash in your pocket. Unfortunately, your existing programmable thermostat doesn’t have the same capabilities and prevents you from making temperature adjustments while you’re away from home.

Convenience of Adjusting the Temperature from Anywhere

WiFi compatibility is one of the most convenient and sought after features in a smart thermostat. In-home temperature control is at your virtual fingertips from nearly anywhere in the world with the simple download and installation of a corresponding app on your phone. Forgot to bump up the temperature of the air conditioner before leaving for vacation? A smart thermostat has you covered from any location with an Internet connection.

As new technology develops in the heating and air industry, older thermostats are less accurate and simply cannot compete with their modern counterparts. Unlike older programmable thermostats, smart thermostats have the ability to automatically adjust the temperature based on the surrounding temperature, which results in substantial savings on your in-home energy bills. Lastly, it tracks your past energy usage and provides reports for any time period you select. The reports enable you to identify where you can cut costs on future energy bills.
