No matter the economy, most of us are looking for ways to increase the energy efficiency of our homes. One of the biggest energy suckers in most homes is the heating and cooling system.

What Is a Smart Thermostat?
A smart thermostat can be installed in most central HVAC systems to help you achieve greater control over your heating and cooling. It’s easy to install and gives you greater flexibility and options than simply on, off, hot, and cold. They allow you to manage and control the temperature and comfort level of your home based on many factors and your personal preferences.
How Does a Smart Thermostat Work?
A smart thermostat allows you to control your temperature settings in a variety of ways to make your home just the right amount of warm or cool depending on your preferences.
You can set a smart thermostat manually, with intuitive programming, vacation programming, and even remote access while you’re away from home. You can set them to keep the temperature constant or change based on whether you’re awake or asleep, at home or at work, or even depending on the weather.
With intuitive programming your smart thermostat “learns” how you like your temperature settings based on behavior and repetition and will program it for you. Additionally, smart thermostats can be changed remotely with Wifi access when you’re away from home by using an app on your smart phone or computer.

Not only does smart thermostat technology give you extensive flexibility with your temperature control, but they create a much more energy efficient heating and cooling system. You can save up to 20% on your energy bills by controlling your energy consumption with this state of the art addition to your HVAC system.
