Keeping your home comfortable at all hours of the day is easier once you install a smart thermostat. You won’t need to adjust the temperature in your Canton, OH, home before bed and again in the morning. With a smart thermostat, you can use your phone to program your home’s temperature and save energy. Here are some reasons to invest in a smart thermostat:
A programmable thermostat will save you money even over the course of the year. Even better, with the right smart thermostat, you can get a report indicating which days were the most expensive and used the highest energy load. Your programmable thermostat can also let you know if your filter needs changing outside of the maintenance plan schedule.
Smart Thermostats Can Learn Your Habits
In addition to offering multiple programming options, smart thermostats can save you money by learning when you’re home and when you’re away. If there’s no motion detected in the space, you can expect the thermostat to adjust accordingly. However, if this won’t work for your household, you can still program the thermostat based on the time of day.
Reduce Your Environmental Impact
Your HVAC unit can’t work harder when you manually crank down the thermostat. Instead, it will run longer. If there’s a problem with your HVAC unit on a terribly hot day, an old-fashioned thermostat may actually force the HVAC unit to run even if it’s freezing up. To protect your HVAC unit, a smart thermostat is a great diagnostic tool.
Work With Many HVAC Systems
You may need to get your wiring checked before a smart thermostat can get wired in. Additionally, if you have a heat pump, you may need to choose carefully to make sure you are installing a thermostat that will work with your style of heat pump. However, you can also enjoy the programming and ease of smart thermostats.
