Why You Should Get a Smart Thermostat

Why You Should Get a Smart Thermostat

If we had to guess, you probably have a lot of “smart” devices in your home. From your phone to your TV to maybe even your fridge, technology is advancing and making your life easier and more efficient. With all the tech your home already has, why not throw a thermostat into the mix?

There are plenty of reasons to add a smart thermostat to your home.

They’re Programmable

First starters, you can use your smart thermostat to set a schedule of when your HVAC system should run. This way, you can set it to only run when you need it and when people are home, rather than having it run and pump treated air to an empty house, which wastes energy.

They Learn Your Habits

Some really “in-tune” smart thermostats can actually begin to learn when you need the heat on a little higher or when you’d be more comfortable with the AC running a little longer. That means you won’t have as much work setting your times and temperatures.

They Help Lower Your Energy Bills

A big culprit in rising energy bills is HVAC overuse. When you use a smart thermostat to control how often your HVAC system runs, it can help prevent your system from running when it doesn’t have to, lowering your energy bills in the process.

They Can Be Used Remotely

Did you head off on a trip without setting your thermostat to “vacation mode,” or do you simply not want to get off the couch to adjust the temperature? No problem! Smart thermostats connect to your phone or tablet so they can be adjusted from wherever you are!
