Modern smart thermostats aren’t just your grandma’s control center for heating and air conditioning anymore! They are equipped with movement and temperature sensors, can be controlled remotely and, in general, can make your life a whole bunch easier.
First-off, upgrading to a smart thermostat can save you money on your energy bills by allowing you to schedule optimal temperatures throughout your house night and day, while you are there and while you are away. Typically, this savings could amount to up to 15 percent savings for your air conditioning and possibly over 20 percent for both heating and air conditioning. That’s very smart!
On to some more cool features like motion detectors. Yep, smart thermostats can now detect when the people in your house are up and about, helping you schedule your home temperature even more accurately.
Then there is the built-in learning function with which smart thermostats are equipped. What that means to you is that your smart thermostat can schedule your heating and cooling on its own – saving you programming time and altering temperature scheduling within your home along with the changing seasons.
A smart thermostat can also be controlled with an app on your phone, which is great for when you are away at work or on vacation. Smart thermostats are also compatible with other smart devices like smart humidifiers, smart air purifiers and smart voice control devices like Alexa.
Your smart thermostat will even allow you to track the energy you use so that you can see for yourself how this smart addition to your home pays off. See? Smart!
