Technology has helped homeowners in many ways. One of these ways is the invention of smart thermostats. If you have an old manual or programmable thermostat, there are several reasons upgrading it to a smart thermostat makes sense.
The Superior Alternative
Manual thermostats are highly inconvenient. You need to fiddle with it too often to keep your home comfortable.
While programmable thermostats are much better than manual ones, most people find them too difficult to program. Many people never set a schedule in theirs and instead treat it as a manual thermostat.
Smart thermostats are easy for anyone to use. They’re very accurate at determining what the room temperature is in your home. Smart thermostats have many state-of-the-art features that older thermostats lack.
Remotely Control Your Temperature
Most smart thermostats have Wi-Fi capability, so they can be controlled using an app on your phone or tablet. If your schedule changes or you go on vacation, you can change the temperature in your home so you’re not heating or cooling an empty home. The apps also give you access to energy reports, alerts and more.
Reduce Energy Bills
Smart thermostats learn your preferences. They learn when you’ll be home or away, so they help your heating and cooling equipment operate more efficiently. A smart thermostat will lower your monthly energy bills versus older thermostats. They can save you money in other ways as well, such as fewer repair bills.
Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
Some smart Thermostats have a humidity sensor. This helps your HVAC system maintain the right level of humidity in your home. Some can improve your indoor air quality by alerting you when the filter in your HVAC system needs to be replaced.
