How much do you know about “smart” heating and cooling?
There’s heating and cooling, and then there’s smart heating and cooling. Which would you prefer?
The difference comes down to whether or not you have a smart thermostat in your heating and cooling system to ensure you’re getting the most out of it. If you know nothing about them, here’s a basic guide for beginners:
The Whole Point of Smart Thermostats
They’re all the rage, but what’s the big deal? Smart thermostats are just that. They’re smart. They do so much more than traditional thermostats, or even programmable ones. They really are as good as they say.
What Do They Do?
Smart thermostat technology allows you to program your thermostat to fit your needs and your comfort level minute by minute, or daily, weekly, whatever works best for you and your family. Some have the ability to “learn” your habits and will self-set based on previous repetitive patterns. And some can be adjusted from a distance via WiFi from a smartphone or a computer.
The Real Benefits
Convenience is the obvious first reason for a smart thermostat, but beyond this there really is a cost savings you can count on. The average is 10% energy savings per year depending on your settings.
Another benefit is the ability to customize your temperature based on your preferences, when you’re home and when you’re away, and what the external temperature is, or is predicted to be. You can customize your comfort, and once you have experienced this convenience in your life, you will wonder why you waited so long.
There are a number of choices when it comes to thermostats for your home.
