How Is a “Smart” Thermostat Beneficial to My Home?

Over the last few years, products in every category have been moving toward “smart” technology. This includes cell phones, televisions, and even thermostats. Smart technology brings a number of new benefits we didn’t have before. With smart thermostats, these benefits include:

  • Saving money on monthly utility bills.
  • Viewing real-time diagnostic data.
  • The ability to remotely operate the thermostat.

Save Money on Bills

Energy Star, a program of the EPA, found that a smart thermostat can save a homeowner about $180 each year on energy costs. This is due efficiencies of smart thermostats. These thermostats have better indicators of a home’s climate, and will turn on and off only when they should.

View Diagnostic Data

Smart thermostats have an amazing ability to show real-time data. This includes diagnostic data and energy usage. This is a great way to monitor if and when an HVAC system needs regular maintenance. If part of the system needs to be repaired, the diagnostic data might be viewed with the smart thermometer.

Real-time energy usage can also be viewed. Before smart thermostats, homeowners would have to wait until the monthly bill to see their energy usage. Now, you can instantly plan your month’s energy usage day by day.

Remotely Operate the Thermostat

Smart thermostats have Wi-Fi capability. This means that they can be operated from your smartphone. Simply download the thermostat application and get started- we can help with that too!. It’s great to be able to turn the HVAC system on or off while not even being home.
