There are many types of “smart” thermostats available on the market today, but you may be wondering if they are truly worth the hype and the price. While they are programmable, so is your outdated thermostat. However, there is more to a smart thermostat than simply clever programming. So if you have been avoiding an upgrade, you may want to consider what a smart thermostat really does before you discount its value.
What is a Smart Thermostat?
Smart thermostats are not just trendy; they are amazing tools that help monitor, control and even lower your energy costs. By having one installed, you are in control of your temperature not just while you are home, but even when you are miles away. Also, the programmability of a smart thermostat goes well beyond what a traditional thermostat can do.
Benefits of Upgrading to a Smart Thermostat
A smart thermostat offers your home more than just savings, it can:
- Be Controlled via Smartphone – You have left the house for vacation, but you forgot to change the thermostat. Luckily, with a smart thermostat you can access your home’s temperature controls from your smartphone.
- Control Your Home’s Humidity Levels – Today’s thermostats do not focus only on temperature; they focus on overall comfort. You can control the humidity levels inside your home as well; so even if it is hot and stuffy outside, you are cool and dry inside.
- Notify You of Changes – Some models of smart thermostats will notify you of extreme temperature changes inside your home or alert you to upcoming filter changes.
- Use Geofencing and Adjust Temperature as Needed – Certain models of thermostats can use your smartphone’s location to automatically adjust the temperature while you are away and then return it to a comfortable temperature once you are within close proximity of your residence. This will save you money and ensure your home is always comfortable.
