Don’t Fear Technology in your Home

The Advantages of Smart Thermostats

Some people are hesitant to introduce more technology into their home, but a smart thermostat is one piece of technology that can set your mind at ease and take some pressure off your wallet. There are various brands and models of smart thermostats available on the market today. Here are a few features that are available that can help you regulate your home and save you some money.

Ease. A smart thermostat allows you access to adjust settings from anywhere. When you install the new smart thermostat, the connection process is easy to do with a cell phone. Once you are synched, you can control the thermostat from anywhere. Some can be installed by the home owner, while it is advised to have a professional technician do the installation to ensure it is done correctly.

Programable. Set it and forget it! You can set a schedule to auto-adjust your temperature, and even humidity, based on the day of the week and time of day. You can select a base temperature for weekdays while you are away at work, adjust the temperatures for evenings while the family relaxes, set a different temperature for nights while you sleep, tweak weekend times while you are home, and even set parameters while you are away from the home on vacation. Some systems even have the option to set temperatures based on zones. For example, you can place a sensor on different levels of your home and adjust which sensor is used to regulate the temperature. If you have a basement that is only used when company is in town, don’t waste extra power heating or cooling that space when it is unoccupied, so select that sensor to not be included when monitoring the temperature of the home. The features may vary some based on the unit you select, but some have an option to analyze the heating, cooling and humidity of your home.

Economical. Save money by regulating the temperature in your home. Forget to adjust the thermostat before leaving for vacation, log in through your phone to make the changes. Don’t need to heat or cool the house as much during the work day? Set the schedule to auto-adjust. Some power and gas companies offer a rebate program for installing a smart thermostat.
