Smart Thermostat Installation
One of the best ways to make your HVAC system more efficient and reduce the likelihood of repair without investing in a whole new system is by upgrading to a smart thermostat. With more and more smart thermostats being developed, it’s never been so easy and affordable to upgrade your thermostat.
What is a Thermostat
Before making any decisions about whether or not to upgrade, it’s important to understand what you’re upgrading. A thermostat is like the control room of the HVAC system. Using a temperature sensor and the settings you control (temperature, heating/cooling, etc.), the thermostat tells your HVAC system what to do. When the temperature gets too high or low, the thermostat sends a message to the system telling it to turn back on.
What Makes Thermostats Smart
Because simple digital thermostats have done their job well for so many years, many homeowners question whether they’re really revolutionizing their heating and cooling systems as so many companies claim. What makes smart thermostats so smart?
In short, upgrading to a smart thermostat is like going from an old flip phone to the latest smartphone. Smart thermostats have many more features, utilizing WiFi capabilities to connect to your phone, programs to maximize the system’s efficiency and even sensors that can tell when you aren’t home to turn the system off. These are just some of the basic features that are available.
Advantages of a Smart Thermostat
While certain smart thermostat features vary between brands and models, there many advantages to having a smart thermostat. These include:
- Lower energy consumption (and lower costs)
- Greater control of scheduling settings for certain times/days to maximize efficiency
- Connecting to your phone to manage your thermostat from anywhere
- Tracking your energy consumption (some thermostats can even program themselves based off of tracking)
Each smart thermostat comes with its own set of features and benefits, so the exact properties will depend on your needs and budget. Luckily, smart thermostat installation doesn’t break the bank.
